TP600 is an impregnated joint sealing tape for use in a wide variety of movement joints including window perimeter seals and other applications.
TP600 is not suitable for locations where standing water or a head of water is likely to occur, e.g. under a window fixed on a flat-topped sub-sill where the tape is not within 2-3 mm of the vertical face of the sub-sill. High temperatures accelerate tape expansion, while low temperatures delay this. At ambient temperatures above 20°C, the tape should be stored in a cool place on the construction site away from direct sunlight. A small fridge is ideal for this.
Remaining rolls in opened boxes should be maintained in a horizontal state and weighed down to prevent lateral expansion (telescoping) of the rolls. Whilst it is unnecessary to seal over the external face of the tape, the exposed edge can be plastered or painted over. The compatibility of sealants must be tested. In some cases, white sealants can be incompatible. The tape must not come into contact with chemicals containing solvents or aggressive chemicals.
Safety data sheet must be read and understood before use.
