When working on intricate roofing or cladding projects, you need tools you can trust. Whilst many adhesives are usable, more companies than ever are utilising HS Butyl tape.
Leading providers of HS Butyl tape to industries the world over, we understand the importance of butyl products and why they’re the best choice for roofing and cladding projects.

Here’s a short explainer of why you should make the switch to HS Butyl.

Durability you can rely on

Butyl rubber is a synthetic material that is resistant to heat, sunlight, and other environmental factors that can cause other types of materials to degrade over time. Durability is integral for many new projects, thanks to the Government’s increased focus on building regulations and environmental aspects of construction.

Unlike alternative products, HS Butyl tape can last for many years without needing to be replaced, offering a reliable and long-lasting choice for construction projects.


Unlike other types of sealants or adhesives, butyl tape is applied very easily, making it simple for your team to install and handle. It can be used in a variety of applications, including sealing roof and wall panels, vents, and other areas that require sealing against water and air infiltration.

For those installing HS Butyl tape, it is easy to apply and has a fantastic adhesion to a number of substrates. As a result, this often saves time for installation and saves companies money in the process.

Why choose HS Butyl products?

HS Butyl tape allows for a better standard of airtightness and waterproofing on new builds and renovations. Importantly, it also seals the overlaps of roofing panels or joins in metal-clad buildings.

To ensure a building’s long-term sustainability and reduce the risk of repairs being needed, airtightness and waterproofing should be prioritised.

Airtightness and waterproofing offer energy efficiency, a significant increase in property longevity and compliance with government legislation requirements.

Superior product, superior results

If you’re choosing HS Butyl, it’s important to choose the right option. Unlike many other producers, our tape isn’t susceptible to going hard or brittle. That’s often a sign of a low-quality product.

As manufacturers of the tape as well as distributors, we know the process that goes into making a product of this quality. Our internal testing process allows us to offer a predicted service life of 25 years.

Our tests include bombarding the butyl with Water, UV and heat to emulate long-term stress in a real-world setting.
