K-FLEX BUTYL TAPE

K-FLEX Butyl Tape is a self-adhesive sealing tape consisting of a high-performance butyl rubber adhesive compound, protected by a reinforced aluminium film. K-FLEX Butyl Tape is highly adhesive, even at low temperatures, to all common building materials. K-FLEX Butyl Tape is highly resistant to ageing and UVrays. K-FLEX Butyl Tape is available in various sizes and colours for multipurpose applications.

FEATURES:
> Tear-resistant;
> Cold applied;
> Excellent adhesion at low temperatures;
> Waterproof and self-sealing;
> Excellent heat stability;
> Resistant to ageing and to UV-rays;
> No oil migration;
> Solvent-free.

APPLICATIONS:
Choose the most suitable width and metal finish of the sealing tape. Unroll the tape until the desired length is reached. Start removing the release liner that covers the adhesive part of the tape and position the sealing tape. Carry out a rollpressing to avoid entrapment of air bubbles. When connecting two tapes, use an overlap of at least 5 cm. Press with a roller or a cloth pad.

STORAGE & SHELF LIFE:
The quality and the characteristics of the materials remain unaltered for a long period of time. However, it is recommended to use the product within 12 months from production date. The product must be stored in the original and unopened packaging in a dry and well ventilated place at a temperature between + 5 °C and + 40 °C. Storage above 50 °C may lead to difficulties in removing the release liner when applying. The product is not affected by frost.

SURFACE PREPARATION:
The sealing tape must be applied to a clean, dry, smooth and dust-free surface. For an application between 0 °C and 5 °C, ensure that frost or condensation are absent on the surface. In case of porous supports it’s advisable to stabilize the surface. No special tools are required to install this sealing tape.

PRODUCT USE:
Sealing and joining materials such as glass, steel, Plexiglas, polycarbonate, wood, aluminium, PVC. K-FLEX Butyl Tape can be used for the sealing of doors and windows frames, conservatories, gutters, piping and ducting. K-FLEX Butyl Tape can also be applied in construction on canopies, roofs, chimneys and skylights.

The manufacturer disclaims all liability for product use and applications. Butyl sealants are plastic products. They possess no elastic recovery. Do not use for permanent fixing or in load bearing applications instead of an adhesive or a mechanical fixing. Butyl adhesive are sensitive to solvents. It is advisable to check the chemical compatibility of the butyl adhesive with the substrate adhesives.
