Product information

tesa ® 51960

Carpet laying tape for professional users - removable -

Product description

tesa ® 51960 is a double-sided carpet laying tape, the open side is to a large extent residual-free removable from many surfaces and consists of PP-film with an acrylic adhesive. The different adhesion value is tailormade for carpet laying applications and guarantees a very high tack on many commonly used surfaces.

tesa ® 51960 is most extensively resistant to ageing and plasticizers (no discoloration of PVC- / CV-floorings). The side with the stronger adhesion is covered with a white liner.

Main applications

Border and butt conglutination of floor coverings based on foam or textile woven backings as well as PVC- and CV-floorings on nearly any surfaces.
