Breathable airtightness corner tape - Ampacoll XT Double Slit

Ampacoll XT Double Slit breathable airtightness corner tape is:-

  • a 60mm wide universal, single sided, tear-resistant, acrylic adhesive tape.
  • split to allow either a 12mm, 30mm or 48mm layer to be removed from the backing.
  • perfect for taping internal corners around windows/doors and in OSB boards.
  • highly adhesive and suitable for bonding all types of membranes as well as boards.
  • suitable for winter use down to -5 degrees C.
  • resistant to exposure for up to 4 months.

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 UdiSTEAM Primer should be applied and left to dry first. This ensures that the tape will stick properly to these surfaces.

How much will I need?

  • Each roll of Ampacoll XT Double Slit tape is 60mm wide and 25m long.
  • For taping OSB boards allow 4-5m per m2 of wall/roof. 
  • For membranes allow 1-2m per m2.

This product can be bought by the 60mm x 25m roll or in boxes of 10 rolls (10% cheaper than single roll cost). The backing is split at 12mm and 30mm to allow sealing around windows or sealing of internal corners in OSB boards or other sheet materials.
