tesa 50451

Printed Wheel Rim Protection Tape

Product description

tesa® 50451 printed protection tape is the perfect solution for the protection of wheel rims during road, rail or sea transportation.
Key purposes for wheel rim protection are a) the prevention of corrosion on brake discs caused by moisture, especially during transportation under maritime conditions and b) the simple check of any damages of the rim caused by transportation.
The backing is transparent and features a customizable imprint for branding or information purposes.
By default it comes with the imprinted message:
in white color for those handling the vehicle and preparing it for the customer-handover.
The location of the imprint (between backing and adhesive) prevents removal or damage of the print.
Due to the good UV resistance tesa® 50451 can remain on the surface until the arrival at the end customer.

Product benefits:

  • Simple and fast handling in application process
  • Sufficient protection of the surface against slight damages
  • Suitable for die cutting

  • Simple and fast removal from the rims even after exposure to sunlight
  • Durable printed message helps to keep the protection right until customer handover for end customer satisfaction
