Moisture-sealing adhesive tape for interior and exterior use
- Protects building components against water ingress with its strong sealing effect
- Secure bonding: butyl rubber penetrates deep into the subsurface
- Easy to work with: very elastic - can adapt flexibly to subsurfaces and corners
- Subsequent work can be started quickly: Sticks to stable mineral subsurfaces without primers
- Construction in adherence with standards: for airtight bonding in accordance with DIN 4108-7, SIA 180 and RT 2012
- Excellent values in the hazardous substance test, has been tested according to the ISO 16000 evaluation scheme
Areas of Application
To seal under sills in timber structures, for joining wood-based panels to smooth mineral surfaces, to stick sub-roof panels one below the other (e.g. in grooves and transitions) and to bond these to adjoining structural elements.
The bonds should not be subjected to tensile strain.
Press firmly to secure the adhesive tape. Ensure there is sufficient back pressure.
Windproof, airtight or rainproof seals can only be achieved on vapour retarding membranes, roof lining membranes or façade membranes that have been laid without folds or creases.
To work with the tape, temperatures must be >5 °C during the day and night. If the initial bond is not satisfactory, a solvent (e.g. white spirits) may be applied to the grey butyl rubber side of the tape. The solvent increases the adhesiveness of the butyl rubber at low temperatures.
The tape is self-bonding under the effect of heat.
Clean subsurfaces before sticking.
Adhesion to frozen surfaces is not possible. There must be no water-repellent substances (e.g. grease or silicone) on materials to be bonded. Subsurfaces must be sufficiently dry and stable.
Bonding and joints are possible on planed and painted wood, hard plastics and metal (e.g. pipes, windows etc.), hard wood-based panels (chipboard, OSB, plywood, MDF and wood fibre underlay panels) and mineral subsurfaces such as concrete, non-plastered masonry or plaster.
Pretreatment with TESCON PRIMER is required in the case of adhesion to wood-fibre underlay panels. Concrete or plaster subsurfaces must not be sandy or crumbling.
Pretreatment with TESCON PRIMER is recommended in the case of subsurfaces with insufficient stability.
The best results in terms of structural stability are achieved on high-quality subsurfaces.
It is your responsibility to check the suitability of the subsurface; adhesion tests are recommended in certain cases.
