Intelligent window sealing tape for interior and exterior use

CONTEGA IQ

Advantages

  • Reliable installation: the same tape for interior and exterior use thanks to its intelligent functional membrane
  • Extra thin: for easy folding in corner areas
  • Construction in adherence with standards: for airtight bonding in accordance with DIN 4108-7, SIA 180 and RT 2012
  • Reliable performance independently confirmed: bears the RAL quality mark
  • Reliable joints: slack for expansion can accommodate movements by building components
  • Fleece side can be plastered over: defined transition between window joints and plaster
  • Excellent values in the hazardous substance test, has been tested according to the ISO 16000 evaluation scheme

Areas of Application

For interior airtight joints between windows or doors and the vapour retarder and airtight layers.
Thanks to its intelligent, humidity-variable functional membrane, CONTEGA IQ is also suitable for exterior windproof and rainproof joints.
The tape has slack for expansion to allow for relative motion between components.

CONTEGA IQ - Intelligent window sealing tape

Simple and reliable: the principle behind the climate-controlled membrane

Just one tape for interior and exterior use: The CONTEGA IQ intelligent window sealing tape works on the principle of a climate-controlled membrane.
It changes its molecular structure depending on the average surrounding humidity and adapts its diffusion resistance to current requirements.
It is vapour-retarding and airtight on the inside, and at the same time open to diffusion, windtight and resistant to driving rain on the outside.

Winter

The diffusion flow is from the inside to the outside. The CONTEGA IQ installed on the inside is now airtight and vapour-retarding. It protects the window joint against condensation and mould.

At the same time, the CONTEGA IQ installed on the outside is resistant to driving rain and open to diffusion.

In this way, the joint is protected against moisture on both sides and can still dry out in an ideal manner when necessary.

Summer

The direction of the diffusion flow is reversed.
It now takes place from the outside to the inside.
The CONTEGA IQ installed on the inside adapts its diffusion resistance if necessary. The tape becomes highly open to diffusion.

Moisture that has penetrated in an unforeseen manner can then dry out to the inside.
A build-up of moisture is avoided.

At the same time, the CONTEGA IQ installed on the outside is resistant to driving rain and sufficiently vapour-retarding.
As a result, it also provides reliable protection against moisture in summer.

Joints with CONTEGA IQ

Vapour-retarding and airtight joints in indoor areas in accordance with the RAL guideline for installation, DIN 4108-7, SIA 180 and RT 2012.

Joints that are resistant to driving rain and windtight in outdoor areas in accordance with the RAL guideline for installation.
