Tape Applications in Construction
 
PSA tapes have surprising strength, longevity and durability, which makes them ideal for a wide variety of construction applications. For example, PSA tapes can be used to:
 
  • Reinforce foundation membranes and keep water out
  • Seal the argon gas between window panes
  • Support and secure ductwork 
PSA tapes can also withstand moisture and extreme temperatures, so they do a great job on rooftops keeping the elements out. In addition, their ability to handle wind loads better than mechanical fasteners make PSA tapes a great choice for bonding architectural panels to the sides of buildings. 
 
Inside of a building, you’ll find PSA tapes everywhere. They’re an excellent option when you need to:
 
  • Bond carpeting to the floor
  • Attach muntin bars to windows
  • Hold moldings and decorative trim in place
Communication is made easier with PSA Tapes. They’re used extensively as adhesive sheeting to secure directional and branding signage both inside and outside of buildings. PSA tapes can even be used as a stencil for sandblasting decorative glass panels. 
 
Insulating electrical, plumbing or HVAC with PSA tapes is another construction practice you may not be aware of. Last but not least, PSA tapes can be used as a tinted film on windows to control room temperatures and protect furnishings from UV rays. 
 
There are a lot of other uses for PSA tapes in construction—including ones you may come up with yourself.
