tesa – Innovators of the Original Straight Line Splicing Tape!
With the development of tesa EasySplice®, tesa revolutionized automation in newspaper and magazine printing more than ten years ago.
Thanks to a secure adhesive bond between the ends of two rolls of paper, termed a splice, the huge rolls of paper used in the printing process, which can weigh tons, can be spliced together continuously, without any risk of tearing – and without slowing production speeds of up to 2,000+ yards per minute.
tesa underscored its status as the world market leader in this segment just this past year, with an acrylate adhesive mass that offers unusually high shear resistance and extremely strong initial tack. The new adhesive permits secure processing of pre-converted rolls of paper even after long storage periods.
