Building & Construction Tapes for Cold Weather Applications

The Avery Dennison Cold Tough™ Adhesive Portfolio features a variety of industrial pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes that provide reliable performance in extreme cold weather applications and humid conditions.


Cold weather tapes engineered for a range of building & construction applications

Severe temperature swings, long droughts, damaging storms and periods of heavy precipitation are all part of our climate reality. Such environmental conditions often place extreme demands on the pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes used in the building & construction segment. 

Tape constructions featuring our Cold Tough™ adhesive technology are engineered for seaming and joining, including in metal building assemblies that require high performance under extreme environmental conditions, including cold weather.

The advantages of Cold Tough™ tapes

Building & construction contractors value bonding solutions that help them save time and effort. They also need confidence in the solution’s long-term performance and durability. Cold Tough™ adhesive tapes offer multiple advantages:


Cold Weather Performance and UV stability
Tested for installation temperatures down to 0F (-18 Celsius) with a service temperature of -40F (-4 Celsius). Superior performance for high humidity, wet conditions; and substrates that tend to accumulate condensation. Engineered for long-term durability even with regular exposure to sunlight.

Strong Bonding, regardless of surface
Superior bonding for high surface energy substrates, such as metals, and low surface energy substrates such as plastics.

Ease of use and conformability
A “mess-free” alternative to liquid adhesives. Easy application and long-term durability around metal joists, seams, and other edged features.

Custom configurations
Choose from multiple tape and adhesive configurations to match the needs of your application. These include quick-stick/high-tack adhesive formulations and single-coated foam tapes for insulation purposes. You can also request custom formulations from our lab.

Thermal break capabilities
Provide insulative properties for flanges and purlin designs. Reduces heat conductivity between framing, paneling, roof and walls in metal buildings.
