Butyl tape, in its various forms, offers significant versatility in use, and has application in a variety of industries. In its most obvious form, it appears in tapes of assorted widths and thickness, and is a highly successful method of bonding together membranes for both building base and roofing applications. The Heating and Ventilation market has found this product to be preferable to other methods of sealing flanges on ducting, due mainly to its ease of application, solvent free formulation, longevity, and large joint movement capability. In bead form, it finds effective uses in both the glazing and horticultural industries, while the caravan industry use it for sealing outer skins and around mouldings. Butyl tape is also widely used in sealing in the motor industry.
Butyl Tape is chemically inert, therefore it will resist oxidation, and will remain permanently elastic, resistant to cracking, and will not degrade under Ultra-violet light. Butyl Tape can be painted. It can adhere to metal, glass, porcelain, concrete, plastic, polycarbonate, wood, and marble. The best sealing solution for the roofing, construction, automotive, piping, and electrical industries.
ROOFING & CLADDING industry where it creates an excellent seal in situations such as side and end lap joints and the bead section is particularly recommended for large corrugated end lap sheet profiles.
HEATING & VENTILATION market has found this product to be preferable to other methods of sealing flanges on ducting due to its ease of use and solvent free formulation.
AEROSPACE vacuum forming processes as a disposable sealant and adhesive where it can be subjected to temperatures up to 150°C.
AUTOMOTIVE uses include sealing around the frames of sun roofs.
GREENHOUSE manufacturers include this product to seal between the glazing and framework.
CARAVAN manufacturers have many applications such as sealing between mouldings and the outer skin, lap joints on the body work and other areas where fittings are attached piercing the outer skin.
DAMP PROOFING where the higher adhesion product B2 is used for bonding and sealing applications such as cavity trays and polythene membranes.
All our tapes should be applied to surfaces at a temperature range of between +4 and +30°C. For best performance the surfaces should be clean, dry, and grease free. The product should be unwound and lightly pressed into position leaving the release paper in place. On forming the joint the release paper is removed and the closing surface pushed firmly in place, pressure applied along the length of the joint and mechanically fixed if necessary.
