Butyl Tape Instructions

  1. Tapem recommends putting the butyl tape in a refrigerator for 2 hours before using it. This action will make butyl tape more sticky and flexible.
  2. Before applying Tapem Butyl Tape, please be sure that the surface is clean, dry, and dust-free.
  3. While applying the butyl tape on the surface, we do not recommend touching adhesive sides too much. Oils from hands can make the tape less sticky.
  4. Make sure that there are no air bubbles under the tape after the tape is applied. You can use the non-sticky side of the backing paper to press or rub the butyl tape to reduce air bubbles.
  5. Use the plastic knife to cut off the unneeded parts of the butyl tape. The knife is included in each packaging for free.
  6. Allow the tape to cure and dry with the backing paper on it for at least 120-180 minutes before any harsh conditions. If the tape is used for the sealing needs, this action is unneeded.
