Foil HVAC tape or metal duct tape is a metalized foil tape specifically designed for HVAC duct work insulation applications. Considered a premium high tack tape, this metal ductwork tape is made with an acrylic adhesive and a UV metalized polypropylene backing which makes the HVAC duct tape resistant to both extreme cold and hot temperatures. Use this HVAC insulation tape to create a constant barrier in your foil insulation applications.
An added benefit of this HVAC insulation tape is that it resistant to moisture, flame spread, and smoke generation. The temperature resistant material makes it ideal for heat repelling applications necessary for duct wrap insulation.
To apply the HVAC tape, clean the surface you are applying the ductwork tape to with a damp cloth. Making sure the surface is free of dust, dirt, and oil ensure that the HVAC duct tape will adhere to the surface for the long term.
Next, remove the liner of the HVAC tape 1-2 feet at a time and press firmly against the insulation. Be careful not to stretch this HVAC insulation tape too tightly. Use a card or wiping tool and work from the inside out, firmly pressing the HVAC duct tape to the surface much like you would do when applying wall paper. This approach prevents too much pressure being applied to one area. Then cut the ductwork tape with a knife or scissors.
