PVC foam tapes provide sealing and insulation against air, dust, moisture, impact, and vibration. These compressible, flexible tapes come in low, medium, and high densities and conform to tight curves and irregular surfaces. Because of how they’re made, PVC foam tapes speed installation since there’s no release liner for assemblers to remove.
The benefits of using PVC foam tapes begin with how they’re made. First, liquid polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is poured onto a casting sheet. Heat is applied, the closed cell PVC foam rises to a specified thickness, and an adhesive is direct-coated.
