Qualtape Australia Ltd
presents the SI36 orange-tinted PE light duty protection tapes designed for rapidly covering up areas that need protection from render splatter.
Featuring a relatively high tack adhesive that will allow it to stick to smooth but complex surfaces such as window frames, sills, gutters and balustrades, the thin PE protection tapes are not intended as a masking medium for edge delineation.
SI36 orange PE light duty protection tapes are ideal for use in applications where renders are being applied or re-applied to older buildings with in-situ fixtures and fittings that require protection from splatter damage. For instance, building security alarms, signs, fuse boxes and fire safety equipment can be protected from render splatter.
Available in a wide range of widths in 100m roll lengths, SI36 protection tapes can also be used for glazing that is not already protected or any other surface that needs protection.
The bond formed by all pressure sensitive tapes is dependent on three main factors including the pressure used for application, the nature of the surface and the ambient conditions at the time of application.
The greater the pressure, the better the adhesive will wet-out on the underlying substrate. Secondly, the surface that the tape is being bonded to should be clean, dry and free from surface contaminants such as dust, oil and grease. The surface should preferably be smooth for the adhesive on the tape to conform to it better.
The ambient temperature and environmental conditions at the time of application are important factors in the quality of the bond. Pressure sensitive tapes should ideally be applied between 15ºC and 30ºC. Problems may be encountered during periods of extremely high humidity or when condensation occurs at the time of application.
