Tapes

Security glazing tape

Our high security PVC glazing tape is closed cell, compressible, high density PVC coated with pressure sensitive moisture resistant solvent acrylic adhesive protected by a siliconised paper liner approved to BS 7950 (1997).

We offer a range of thicknesses & widths. The width should match the rebate/upstand height. Always ensure a clean & dry surface with the tape aligned to the top of the rebate without being stretched. Butt or mitre corners & immediately prior to glazing remove the protective siliconised release paper. Our security PVC glazing tape is recommended to be used under 20% compression in order to maintain a water tight seal.

It is suited for bonding difficult and dissimilar surfaces including metals, wood, UPVC and many plastics. The foam construction provides excellent conformability and is therefore ideal for rough, uneven and structured surfaces.

Colours available: Black and white

Sizes available:  Width as required and a thickness of 1mm, 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm

Compriband

Compriband Super is designed for use internally or externally for the linear sealing of movement joints in a wide variety of construction and civil engineering applications, for example in brick and block work walls, partitions, as a perimeter seal around window and door frames, sealing pre-cast concrete panels, sectional buildings and insulated cladding panels.

Compriband Super is an acrylic impregnated foam sealant strip which when used under compression by approximately 80% provides a high performance weatherseal (>600 Pa). The product is supplied in roll form pre-compressed and ready for immediate use with a self-adhesive backing. After positioning, the material expands to find its own level and creates a permanent elastic seal. The product remains flexible throughout its life and responds to continual expansion and contraction cycles caused by thermal and structural movement.

Colours available: Anthracite

Sizes available: 10/2, 10/3, 15/4, 15/5, 15/6, 20/8, 25/10, 30/12
