“One of the best all round tapes for internal an external use on membranes, boards and all the fiddly corners such as against windows” – Chris Brookman

Product overview.

Where is it used?

  • Ampacoll XT Double Slit can be used internally or externally and has been optimised to withstand the more challenging conditions found externally.
  • Ampacoll XT Double Slit can be used for taping all types of window/door frames, timber boards such OSB, Ply, MDF and pre-primed wood fibre boards.
  • The breathable tape is suitable for taping all types of internal and external penetrations in breathable membranes and vapour control membranes.

How is it used?

  • Surfaces should be clean, dry and free of dust before the tape is applied. 
  • When taping around window/door frames, cut tape to the required length for each edge of the frame.
  • Fold the length of tape along the split in the backing, 12mm for windows/doors and 30mm for internal corners.
  • Peel off the narrowest backing strip (12mm, if bonding to window/door frames) and firmly stick to window frame.
  • Once in place, the rest of the backing can be removed to allow bonding to the reveal of the opening.
  • On lightly textured boards like OSB a roller should be used to firmly press the tape into position. 
  • If you are taping to concrete/masonry or wood fibre boards the Ampacoll Primax Primer should be applied and left to dry first. This ensures that the tape will stick properly to these surfaces.

Material in action.

One use for this split backed tape is to tape around penetrations, as shown in this picture. The Ampacoll XT tape is ideal for external use as it is UV resistant and will last for decades in an external environment.
