Available in many sizes.
If this tape size does not return the results you desire in your
specific application, ask for other size options.
Tape must be kept compressed to
a sealing density level appropriate to the application and desired
level of sealing (see compression chart).
1. Storage and Surface
Tape should be stored in a warm dry interior location. Ideal
application temperature is approx. 75°F (24°C). Expansion will be
faster at higher temperatures and slower at lower temperatures.
Tip: For faster
expansion in cold conditions keep the material warm before use and,
if desired, apply heat from a hair dryer to installed material to
accelerate expansion. Joint faces should be dry and cleaned of dirt,
oils, grease, etc. There should exist sufficient depth to receive
full width of the sealant.
IMPORTANT: Reels must
be stored FLAT and kept compact. Should material expand in package
it can still be used. Unroll material, allow it to expand, then
recompress it between surfaces to be sealed.
2. Opening Reels
Only open materials that will be immediately used. Remove shrink
wrap. Cut through outer liner at colored marking tape to start.
3. Square Off Ends
Start and finish ends must be cut square. For easier cutting spray
knife or scissors with mist of water.
4. Peel Off Liner
Remove release liner to expose adhesive face of tape.
5. Adhere/Align to
Press adhesive face to one surface. Align other surface with tape.
Secure surfaces together.
Tip: If needed cut and fit small filler pieces of tape to fill panel
corrugation or voids.
6. Join Lengths with
To form a continuous strip overlap tapes and miter with a moist
knife at 45° angle. Pinch mitered faces together.
