Alternative to sealant for sealing between exterior wall sheets
DAFA butyl tape for panels
An alternative to sealant
Butyl tape is typically used as an alternative to sealant, as the butyl rubber does not flow out when compressed. Butyl tape is used as a seal between exterior wall sheets which will not be separated again. The tape should be compressed about 30%.
DAFA offers butyl products and solutions in all shapes and dimensions for construction and industrial applications – for sealing, absorption and protection. Butyl is a flexible sealing solution, as the material is made of soft and adhesive rubber. The material can absorb movements, has extremely strong adhesion and is highly durable.
DAFA butyl tape is a soft adhesive butyl rubber.
DAFA butyl tape (type 303 & 390) is included in the Nordic Ecolabellings database of construction products that can be used in Swan-labelled buildings.
