A New Generation of Acrylic Adhesive Insulation Tapes

If you‘re a thermal insulation installer or contractor, then you know the challenges associated with installing conventional insulation tapes. They can require the use of mastics, for example, which require time to set and dry, and they function reliably only within a limited temperature range. Now, help has arrived in the form of new generations of pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive tapes, which reduce the need for mastics and perform reliably in continuous temperatures up to 200F/93C. Avery Dennison Performance Tapes’ Dave Shuey examines the new tapes with insights.
