ProctorPassive Air Barrier (AB) Tape
ProctorPassive AB Tape is a single sided pliable polyethylene tape made with an aggressive, moisture resistant polyacrylate pressure sensitive adhesive with superior ageing resistance.
ProctorPassive AB Tape is ideal for air-tight bonding and sealing of penetrations and overlaps of air and vapour barriers. The tape is suitable for bonding of smooth and slightly rough surfaces. The tape can bond to polyolefin non-woven membranes, aluminium faced insulation boards, plastics, metals, timber, MDF and other manufactured timber sheathings.
Installation of ProctorPassive AB Tape must be in accordance with the installation guide.
As with all pressure sensitive tapes, in order to ensure a strong bond, apply pressure on both sides of the material when applying the tape.
Surfaces being adhered must be dry and free of surfactants, release agents like grease or oil, and dirt or dust. Damp or cold surfaces may prove difficult to adhere to and should be allowed to dry and return to a temperature between +5°C + 40°C prior to application of tape.
All mechanical load on membranes should be distributed to mechanical fasteners, the tape not being applied under mechanical load. The use of adhesive tape is not a substitute for the correct fixing of the materials.
