Construction is focused on the small details – and they’re extremely important. For commercial construction projects, the quality of your materials and the techniques you use to put them together are integral to the longevity of your builds.
One small but highly effective component that can help create more efficient buildings is HS Butyl tape.
What is HS Butyl tape?
Butyl tape is a sealant tape that is made of a synthetic rubber known as butyl. It’s chosen by many industries thanks to its high tensile strength, excellent adhesion to many surfaces and unrivalled weather resistance.
HS Butyl tape is most commonly used in construction to seal joints, seams, and connections between different parts of the building. Its versatility makes it usable in a variety of settings, including roofing, cladding and insulation.
Here’s why it’s so popular.
Enhanced air sealing
One of the most frequent reasons for energy loss in buildings is air leakage. Leaks and openings that allow outside air to enter the structure might make the HVAC system work harder to keep the interior at a reasonable temperature. This can therefore result in increased energy costs and system wear and tear.
By filling gaps and cracks through which air enters a building, HS Butyl tape can increase airtightness and help reduce the loss of heat, making your building more energy efficient.
Better water resistance
One of the most common and expensive issues faced by portfolio owners, water damage can create big problems. Through only tiny gaps and cracks, water can penetrate buildings and create mould, rot and structural damage.
HS Butyl tape offers great resistance against water and general extreme weather conditions. It can be used to seal gaps and cracks as well as prevent them from appearing in the first place. Usually found on joints and cladding, you can reduce the risk of water leakage within your building.
Longer lifetime than competitors
Building materials that can withstand general wear and tear, as well as the passing of time, are hugely preferable over those that require frequent repairs and replacements. HS Butyl tape is a durable and long-lasting material and will help add longevity to the protection of your building.
HS Butyl tape is industry-leading and is put through rigorous testing to ensure it provides the best protection for the longest possible time period.
