Ahlstrom MasterTape™ Flex is the reference for high elongation products.

Thanks to its high amplitude creping pattern, this backing can be directly coated with adhesive without the need for saturant or release agent.

Thus, coupled with a recyclable compatible adhesive, it is the perfect fit for environmentally friendly masking tapes.

White, yellow and brown are the main colors available for this grade.
