Application Instructions

Aluminium Self-Adhesive Foil Jointing Tape Application Instructions

The surface to which the tape is to be applied must be clean, dry and free from dust. Any contamination on the surface of the substrate can result in poor adhesion.

For best results, before applying the tape, the surface should be wiped clean with a keytone free proprietary solvent, using a lint free cloth. Solvent must be fully evaporated before application of tape.

Fix insulation carefully so that slabs or sections abut with no gaps. Open joints will permit localised heating which may in turn affect the adhesion of the foil tape.

When bonding to an embossed or ribbed surface the tape may not be in 100% contact so adhesion values may be reduced.

Remove tape from roll, discard release paper, align tape centrally over joints and rub down well over the entire area of the tape taking care to avoid wrinkles, folds and undue tension. Avoid touching the adhesive surface as dirt, oils and grease may be transferred and impair adhesion.

Allow an adequate overlap of the tape onto itself of at least twice its width. If possible fold back about 25mm of one end of the tape so that when the overlap is made this section of the bond will be adhesive on adhesive.
