Lamatek Announces new Foam Sealant Tape for RV Application

Mon Apr 3, 2017

149123678661778.jpgWEST DEPTFORD, New Jersey - LAMATEK has announced the new Sure-Seal foam sealant tape: an advanced, moldable gasket tape that combines the sealing properties of common sealants with the convenience of a tape.

Sure-Seal tape is made from a resilient, open cell urethane foam that is impregnated with a proprietary saturant to provide flexible, airtight and watertight sealing without the compression set or restrictions of closed cell foams.

New foam sealant tape is a clean and convenient alternative to spray foam, caulk, butyl and putty tapes that can become messy and difficult to use under varying conditions, according to a press release. Sure-Seal foam tape expands and conforms to block air, vapor, moisture and dust infiltration for more than 20 years. Impregnated urethane tape absorbs sound, impact and vibrations while saving time and money in production for a wide variety of RV applications including trailer panels, chassis supports, prefabricated elements, windows and doors, curtain walls, heating and air, tank supports, trim and more.

Sure-Seal foam sealant tape is available through LAMATEK in a range of custom sizes from ¼-inches to 1¼ inches thick and 3/16-inches to 39 inches wide. LAMATEK also supplies custom die-cut gaskets and seals for irregular surfaces, joints or spaces in RVs, trailers and mobile homes.
