  • Tape approved for Original Equipment use
  • High bond - sticks better to alloy rim surfaces
  • Soft foam adhesive backing – sticks better to the inside of alloy rim surfaces
  • High bonding strength at elevated temperatures
  • Can be fitted at low temperatures down to 14°F (-10°C)
  • High quality tape made in Germany by Lohmann
  • Plastic coated for superior appearance and corrosion protection

Why do adhesive weights fall off?

foam types

The soft foam Lohmann tape sticks better on alloy rim surfaces increasing the bond strength.

With hard foam (eg blue liner), adhesive tapes moisture can ingress underneath the adhesive reducing the bond strength.
