From Doors to Drawers to Labels to Cables... tesa has 'A Hold' on the Appliance Industry



CHARLOTTE, NC, USA - September 1, 2003, - tesa tape, inc., a global leader in the manufacture and supply of pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes, continues to expand its suite of products for applications within the appliance industry. Latest innovations include two new tapes developed for securing appliance components during assembly and transport.

tesa Tapes for Securing Components
With fully integrated manufacturing capabilities, tesa is the industry leader in manufactured tensilized polypropylene (TPP) tapes, also known as mono-oriented polypropylene (MOPP). From the first resin pellet to the finished tape roll, tesa production personnel control every step of the manufacturing process, making tesa the only North American tape company capable of extruding TPP film, polymerizing and applying adhesives, and custom slitting and spooling its final tape products, all in one facility!

tesa offers a full line of TPP tapes specifically developed for securing components during appliance manufacturing, assembly, and shipping processes. More specifically, tesa tapes are used in a variety of temporary holding applications, including securing doors, drawers, racks, ice trays, stove burners, and cords, just to name a few!

The company's latest innovation, tesa 53000 PV1, is part of a new generation of tesa TPP tapes designed specifically for adherence to low energy surfaces, such as powder-coated metal used in appliance production. Unique by design, tesa 53000 PV1 combines aggressive holding power (the highest adhesion level of TPP tapes on the market) with clean removal characteristics, a powerful combination for objects that must be secured temporarily. The tape's unique adhesive system is also ideal for adhering to metal and plastic surfaces, as well as many others. The revolutionary backing of tesa 53000 PV1 offers unmatched flexibility and conformability to virtually every shape or contour. This new product is available in an attractive
"Carolina" blue color, making it easily visible at time of removal.

Another tesa late-breaking innovation, tesa 4576, offers securing power of a different kind. Coined as a "vent tape", tesa 4576 is designed to serve as a filter for securing insulation in refrigeration units as it is being applied (blown in). The permeable tissue backing of this tape allows only air to escape, while keeping foam or insulating material in tact. tesa 4576 is both temperature and age resistant, ensuring longevity throughout the life of the appliance.

tesa TPP tapes are also ideal for securing internal cables, as well as external power cords, throughout the production and transit processes.

tesa Tapes for Marking and Labeling
tesa offers a host of labeling options that take the metal out of marking. Custom, laser-engravable tapes, tesa 6930 and tesa 6931, are available for virtually every identification code, including manufacturer name, serial and model numbers, date, model specifications, and more. All tesa laserable labels are completely resistant to humidity, solvents, and cleaning fluids. What's more, tesa 6930 has earned both UL (Underwriters Laboratory) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) approvals, making it an even more qualified choice for critical labeling applications. Additionally, all tesa tapes for labeling are completely "tamper evident", meaning that they self-destruct if tampering occurs. These tapes are available in a variety of standard sizes, conforming to almost all manufacturer size specifications.

From Doors to Drawers to Labels to Cables...tesa has "A Hold" on the Appliance Industry!
