Tesa Tape, Inc. Announces New Splicing Tape

CHARLOTTE, NC, USA - April 28, 2009 - Company officials of tesa tape, inc., a division of tesa SE, a global leader in the manufacture and supply of pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes, recently announced a new product for splicing applications in the paper manufacturing industry. This new innovation - tesa® 64437 - joins the company's vast assortment of specialty splicing products.

Splice with Confidence

Based on the same tried-and-true technology of many tesa® splicing tapes, tesa® 64437 is designed to be a flexible, multi-purpose splicing agent for common repulpable adhesive tape applications, including: 1) attaching substrates to cores to enable the winding process, 2) manual splicing of one substrate to another, and 3) permanent splicing.

Equipped with an aggressive adhesive system, tesa® 64437 adheres extremely well to coated and uncoated paper stock and maintains its initial positioning with little to no movement. One of the most notable features of this tape is its ability to be recycled during pulp and re-pulp processes, making it a "repulpable" tape. This is made possible by the tape's unique tissue-paper backing and water-soluble adhesive. The tape's protective liner is the only part of the tape that requires discarding. As such, this product is one of tesa's eco-friendly products and part of our "Focus on Environment" initiative.

tesa offers an extensive line of specialty tapes and related products specifically for paper manufacturing, coating, and converting industries. Visit the company's website for complete assortment information - www.tesatape.com.
