3M™ VentureClad™ Insulation Jacketing Tape 1577CW-WME is an all-weather option for various jacketing applications. It offers high resistance to weathering, mold, UV and extreme environmental conditions and meets the FDA compositional requirements for indirect food contact. This embossed white aluminum multi-layered laminate tape is designed to provide zero permeability and act as a vapor barrier.
Zero Permeability Cladding and Jacketing
The embossed white aluminum exterior provides an attractive aesthetic for cladding that is visible when finished while also providing excellent chemical resistance. It provides zero permeability and acts as a vapor barrier for insulation cladding and jacketing applications. This tape was tested in accordance with ASTM E84. The self-adhesive material cuts and installs easily on-site and without the use of special tools. The backing is flexible to conform to curved and irregular surfaces with ease. 3M™ VentureClad™ Insulation Jacketing Tape 1577CW-WME meets or exceeds most building code requirements – for more information on specific approvals, please refer to the technical data sheet.
Adheres in Cold Temperatures
3M™ VentureClad™ Insulation Jacketing Tape 1577CW-WME features an aggressive pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive that bonds and seals well in cold temperatures. This adhesive adheres immediately on contact to a variety of materials such as fiberglass, faced fiberglass insulation, mineral wool, polystyrene and flexible aerogel. It applies easily at temperatures as cold as -10°F/-23°C. It can operate at a service temperature as low as -94°F/-70°C and as high as 248°F/(120°C). Once bonded, this tape will provide good holding power for extended periods with good aging properties that resists lifting and curling over time.
This product is used to protect insulation against UV, ozone, high humidity, salt spray, weather, oil and grease, aggressive chemicals, impact and mechanical abuse, corrosion under insulation (CUI), and moisture vapor intrusion. It also works well with many insulation types Qualifies for compliance credit for LEED®. Additionally, it meets the FDA compositional requirements for indirect food contact.
