The Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Specialists in Adhesive Tapes & Glues
PSA1524A is a 72mm x 50 Metre bi-directionally reinforced aluminium foil duct tape, that is coated with a patented cold weather acrylic adhesive formulation. This aluminium foil tape can be applied in: cold, damp - and even humid conditions - from as low as: -149°C.
This reinforced foil tape was primarily developed as a: vapour seal, for reinforced aluminium faced fibreglass - or mineral wool thermal insulation panels.
This Cold Weather Foil Tape is a high strength tape that carries the: Venture tapes patented cold weather adhesive system.
The patented adhesive system, has been specially designed to make it ideal for bonding at low and high temperatures; as well as environments of high humidity. Consequently, this foil tape is constructed specifically for use in extreme environments.
This tape has been field tested for applications in temperatures as low as: -100 (-20°C) and stable up to: 2500°F (120°C). The fact this aluminium foil tape is ideal for extreme environments, ensures: secure and reliable bonding in all conditions. As well as being secure and reliable, this foil tape continues to self cross-link after application. What this means to you, is that the bond strength increases over time and helps to ensure secure and reliable adhesion to the surface.
This foil tape is ideal for:
This Reinforced Cold Weather Aluminium Foil Tape is ideal for the following uses:
- Wrapping vinyl coated wires
- Protection against heat, water and dust
- Creating air tight seals on aluminium backed, fibrous insulation and metal duct work
- Emergency repairs to glazing bars, roof-lights, roof windows and north lights
- Foil faced insulation products
- Extreme environments
- Heat shielding in demanding applications
Ideal for applications requiring the following:
The 'cold start' patented acrylic adhesive is solvent based and resistant to: moisture. What this means to you, is that it can be applied even in cold damp conditions.
As well as being resistant to moisture the adhesive is also resistant to: chemicals, when in situ.
This tape is also: flame resistant, being class 'O' Certified. This certification means this tape has an added level of protection where limited combustibility is required in high-risk areas.
This tape properties make it ideal when heat reflectance and thermal conductivity are required. It is formulated to protect sensitive components in various applications. Heat reflectance acrylic foil tapes are perfect for heat shielding in demanding applications and when in situ this tape will help shield components sensitive to heat. This tape also excels in demanding temperatures from: -400°C to 1200°C.
Main features of the Reinforced Cold Weather Aluminium Foil Tape include:
Solvent based adhesive
As a result of this foil tape being a solvent based adhesive it provides an immediate waterproofing protection after application, even before they have dried. This means rain hitting the foil after it has been applied is not a big problem.
Can work in cold conditions
This tape is also not damaged by freezing temperatures and better adheres to porous surfaces.
Ready to use on site
No extra additives are required to apply this tape.
Excellence adhesion to wood based sheathings
This makes this tape ideal for light commercial products where an excellent adhesion is required.
Additional information Storage:
This tape should ideally be stored at temperatures of: 160°C to 250°C. Please note: This aluminium foil tape is not suitable for use with attaching Polystyrene to Polystyrene or for use with mesh.
Application guide Surface preparation is paramount for achieving the required bond when using this pressure sensitive adhesive. If you would like more information on how to achieve this Read our Surface Preparation and Application Guide for more information on how to apply this foil tape.
