Product information

tesa® 4990 Butt-Splicing Tape

350 µm single-sided modified-acrylic adhesive tape

Product description

tesa® 4990 is a single-sided adhesive tape using a modified-acrylic adhesive and a black PET-cloth backing. The acrylic adhesive combines fast dwelling performance in combination with excellent resistance against elevated temperature. tesa® 4990 shows excellent tensile resistance for high tension processes as well. tesa® 4990 is offering in-line curing of the adhesive to compensate the general effect of adhesive softening at high temperature. This results in a stable adhesive strength across a wide temperature range.

  • Shear resistant, acrylic adhesive
  • Tensile resistant PET-fabric backing
  • Easy handling and application

  • Suitable for high temperature processes - resisting up to 250°C
  • High tear-resistance for high tension processes 
1  Secure compensation of web tension in high-tension web processe - avoids web breaks and wrinkles
  • No cure time - Eliminates cure time for faster production
  • No machinery investment - Utilize existing machinery to implement more efficient production

Main applications

Splicing of metal webs is the focus application for this specifically designed product withstanding elevated temperatures as well as processes with high web-tension.
