Cellular glazing tape
Venture Tape, a 3M company, has introduced a new generation of products in its glazing product line for window and door applications in residential, industrial and light commercial buildings. Venture Tape VG700 Series and VG1200 Series glazing tapes are closed cell polyolefin foam tapes that provide high performance, better adhesion, weather resistance and durability. Both products feature a reformulated adhesive system and a new and improved liner. They also have low VOCs, making them environmentally friendly and contributing toward LEED compliance credits. Venture Tape has also announced that these products will now be available on a national basis through Industrial Sales Corp., a leading sales and distribution company of products for the fenestration market.
Venture Tape VG700 Series glazing tapes are coated on both sides and feature a high-performing adhesive system. The exposed side adhesive is a rubber-based adhesive specifically designed for adhesion to PVC and other low-surface-energy sash and frame materials. The liner-side solvent-based acrylic adhesive is specifically designed for adhesion to glass.
Venture Tape VG 1200 Series glazing tapes are coated on both sides with a solvent-based acrylic adhesive system. The exposed side adhesive system is designed for adhesion to PVC and other low-surface-energy sash and frame materials. The liner-side adhesive has excellent adhesion to glass. The solvent-based acrylic is UV resistant and has greater adhesion properties in colder temperatures.
Both tapes exceed AAMA specification 810.1, Type 1 performance requirements for cellular glazing tapes. Both products are available in black, grey or white foam and come in a variety of foam thicknesses.
“We are pleased to be part of this new national partnership with Venture Tape,” says Jim Hornung, president of ISC. “The new relationship will benefit customers by streamlining sales and service of products for the window and door market.”
