Non classifié(e) | mars 26th, 2019

Benefits of Butyl Tape

Why use butyl tape instead of bitumen?

  • Longer service life.
  • Non-staining.
  • Low temperature flexibility.
  • Wider service temperature range i.e. butyl tapes can perform at -40 Degrees Celsius whereas most bitumen products are limited to -10 degrees Celsius.
  • Tack at low temperatures. At low temperatures heated blowers may have to be used to increase the tack on the bitumen to help application.
  • Compatible with Polycarbonate/GRP rooflights.
