Saint-Gobain Sealing Tapes offers a range of sealing foam tape products, namely PVC Foam Tape and PUR Foam Tape. These tapes serve the function of providing effective sealing against air, dust, and moisture. Key features of Saint-Gobain Sealing Tapes products include swirl-free properties, a wide range of firmness options, and an aggressive adhesive that ensures quick-stick application.
The Norseal Foam Sealing Tapes, considered a standard in the transportation industry, are composed of closed-cell compressible foam with pressure-sensitive adhesive. These tapes are designed to seal against water, dirt, and air, even when compressed by 30% under extreme conditions. The aggressive adhesive facilitates quick and accurate application without the need for special tools. Additionally, the tapes do not require curing and offer advantages such as not oozing or squeezing out of joints, not drying out, dripping, cracking, or becoming brittle.
The Norseal PVC Foam Tapes are available with differing levels of firmness, providing balanced properties and reliable weather in capability. On the other hand, the Norseal PUR Foam Tapes are designed to accommodate elevated temperatures typical in paint cycles. These foam sealing tapes remain flexible in various climate conditions, ensuring protection against weather elements, whether applied to the riveted roof top rail seam on a 53-foot trailer or the overlap seam on a class 8 truck cab. Overall, Norseal Foam Sealing Tapes from Saint-Gobain are known for their versatility, durability, and effectiveness in providing weather-resistant sealing solutions.
