Self-adhesive products from tesa tape are known and used globally and cover splicing, core starting, and end tabbing applications to optimize all steps of paper production processes. The company offers a complete assortment for high-speed tambour changes at coaters, calendars, and slit winders.

With the invention of tesa® EasySplice, tesa has transformed splicing processes. High-speed coaters know that every splicing failure results in significant losses in efficiency and money. tesa EasySplice expedites top splice security at the highest speed, along with easy and time saving preparation. 

Features of tesa EasySplice 61152 CoaterLine Premium include high heat resistance, high tack, strong adhesion values on both coated and uncoated paper, low splice thickness, a printable and coatable backing, and repulpability over the full pH range. It has a slit liner for secure fixation of the top sheet. The high tack properties create excellent contact between the expiring web and new reel. The splitting strips with paper backing ensure a smooth opening of the new paper reel without interrupting the coating process. There is no need to fold back tape while attaching the top sheet.

The tesa CaRes tapes are developed for special challenges in the production of paper with an increasing use of calcium carbonate as a filler or coating pigment. They feature a calcium-resistant, fully repulpable, and permanent adhesive. Offering high shear strength and heat resistance, tesa CaRes 51913 PV11 features strong adhesion values on most paper grades.

The double-sided tesa 51917 works for both static splicing and core starting. It offers the highest tack properties, strong adhesion values on both coated and uncoated papers, strength, and repulpability over the full pH range. It’s especially suitable for flying splice processes with critical adherence conditions.

The repulpable, single-sided splicing tape tesa 4441 is ideal for working with end-tabbing applications. It offers customers high strength and tack properties, as well as strong adhesion on coated and uncoated paper.
