Our butyl tape is used on projects all over the world to provide better, longer-lasting protection to roofing and cladding on buildings.
As leading providers of butyl products, we know a thing or two about how they can change buildings for the better.
Our clients routinely tell us about the positive effects our butyl tape has on their projects, but we wanted to share some of the benefits with you.
What’s the use of butyl when roofing and cladding?
Butyl tape allows for a better standard of airtightness and waterproofing on new builds and renovations. Predominantly, it seals the overlaps of roofing panels or joins in metal-clad buildings.
For buildings, airtightness and waterproofing are vital to ensuring the viability of the premises in the long term, reducing the risk of any avoidable damage.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of airtightness and waterproofing include energy efficiency, the longevity of property life and meeting government legislation requirements.
With an increase in focus on energy efficiency and government guidelines getting stricter, companies can take a simple step that makes a big difference simply by using more reliable butyl tape for roofing and cladding projects.
From an installation perspective, it is easy to apply and has great adhesion to a number of substrates.
Why should you use our butyl tape?
Unlike many other butyl tape producers, our tape won’t go hard or brittle. That’s a sign you’re using a low-quality product.
We prioritise long-term performance with every product. As manufacturers of the tape as well as distributors, we know the process that goes into making a product of this quality.
We’ve got an internal laboratory that allows us to test for quality. This allows us to offer a predicted service life of 25 years, thanks to our rigorous testing procedures.
We bombard the butyl with Water, UV and heat to emulate long-term stress in a real-world setting.
