“A revelation! This tape simplifies and massively speeds up taping the cut joins in our wood fibre sarking boards” – Chris Brookman

Product overview.

Where is it used?

  • Ampacoll Fenax window & membrane sealing tape can be used internally or externally to seal around windows and the edges of membranes or other building components to masonry or timber substrates, without requiring a primer.
  • Ampacoll Fenax window & membrane sealing tape can also be used for taping the cut joints in our wood fibre sarking boards, also without needing a primer.
  • The tape is suitable for roofs and walls but should not be used at or below ground level.

How is it used?

  • Surfaces should be clean, dry and free of dust before the tape is applied. Brush well to remove any dust and dirt.
  • For taping membrane edges, fold about 40 mm of the membrane over the flank wall, the adhesive line on the Ampack membrane serves as orientation.
  • Using the Ampacoll Fenax 40/60, remove the liner of the narrower, 40 mm-wide strip and stick the tape onto the membrane. The flank wall serves as a solid base for pressing the tape firmly on to the membrane or use the Ampack pressure roller to do this.
  • Create a pressure relief loop by sliding the Ampacoll Fenax 40/60 tape and the membrane to be connected upwards by 15mm or so (see data sheets for clarification). This is important and ensures that no tension is put on the tape should the building move.
  • Remove the liner of the 60 mm-wide strip of Ampacoll Fenax and stick the tape onto the flank wall by firmly pressing it against the wall. If the surface is not even, make sure that the tape follows the profile of the wall.
  • This tape can then be plastered over to make the junction permanently airtight.
  • On wood fibre sarking boards ensure there are no loose fibres on the surface of the board and that it is dry.
  • The Ampacoll Fenax 40/60 tape can be applied at equal widths to both surfaces and should be firmly rollered to ensure maximum bond strength.
  • For taping around windows using the Ampacoll Fenax 12/88, 12/63 or DS 30/70, see the Ampack window installation guide.

Material in action.

In this example you can see the Ampacoll Fenax tape being used to air seal the interior and weather seal the exterior faces of the window frame. In addition to this you can also see how the Ampacoll SillSkin tape is used to seal the outer sill and the Ampacoll Komprimax insulates around the perimeter of the window, between the frame and the masonry opening.

For more information on how to professionally seal windows and doors, see the Ampack Window Installation Guide.
