Installation Instructions



  1. Ensure the surfaces to be adhered to are clean, dry and free from oil and other contaminants.
  2. Ensure tape is centred on join.
  3. Apply tape, ensuring that the maximum surface contact is achieved by allowing tape to conform to contours in product. Apply pressure with squeegee as you apply tape.
  4. For thicker foam core products such as Trade Select™ ThermalBreak™, 72mm Reinforced Insulation/Ducting Tape is recommended and should be applied as deeply as possible into the perpendicular angle. (Refer to Figure 1.)
  5. Whenever possible, apply tapes to joins that have a firm backing (e.g. studs or rafters) to achieve maximum application pressure. If this is not possible, then provide support from behind with short pieces of steel studs or timber.
  6. Taping of joins is a method of sealing joins only, and is not a suitable substitute for mechanical fixing in situations where there may be stress or pressure on the join (e.g. wind loading, etc.). In such cases, a more secure method of securing the join must be considered.
  7. Store tape in a clean, dry place out of direct sunlight.
