tesa® 4590 is a general purpose unidirectional / single-weave filament tape based on glass filaments laminated to polyester film. The tape is used for industrial bundling, palletising and fixing applications. tesa® 4590 combines good longitudinal tensile strength with very low elongation. The synthetic rubber adhesive system ensures a secure bond to various substrates, even to non-polar surfaces like PE and PP. tesa® 4590 features a very high tack and a short dwell time until reaching final adhesive strength. The tape also exhibits excellent adhesion to a variety of corrugated and solid cardboard surfaces. tesa® 4590 is tear-resistant.
