SUBSTRATE COMPATIBILITY RECOMMENDED USE DESCRIPTION SURFACE PREPARATION APPLICATION FLEX Fabric Seam Tape is a easy to use economical andpermanent sealing tape that bonds to most materials, including roofing membranes, metals, plastics, and most other materials. This tape uses an elastomeric adhesive bonded to a woven polyester fabric backing for maximum conformability. FLEX Fabric Seam Tape can be used to seal leaking joints, seams, and cracks. Itis is designed to expand and contract without any cracking within normal roofing temperatures. FLEX Fabric Seam Tape is notdesigned for direct exposure to UV, but can be coated or painted with a UV resistant coating. FLEX Fabric Seam Tape is designed for sealing joints and seamswhere top coating is desired. It is ideal for metal buildings, mobile homes, manufactured housing, travel trailers, RV’s, utility trailers, and semi-trailers. It can be used to seal skylights, metal roof seams, flashings, penetrations, tears, fountains, tanks, planters, plaza decks, etc. FLEX Fabric Seam Tape may also be used as a detail materialwith other waterproofing and coating systems. FLEX Fabric Seam Tape will bond aggressively to mostmaterials, including: metals, plastics, roofing materials, wood, gypsum, concrete, brick, fiberglass and many previously painted surfaces. Perform adhesion test to confirm compatibility when required. Surface must be clean and dry, with no oils, grease or loose debris. Remove salt and other contaminants by pressure washing with a suitable detergent followed by a fresh water rinse. Rust and other adhered foreign matter should be removed by scraping or wire brushing followed by a solvent wipe. Center the FLEX Fabric Seam Tape over the seam, removing the plasticrelease liner gradually to prevent contamination of the adhesive prior to application. This material may be applied to clean dry surfaces above 40°F. For exposed applications a UV resistant coating should be applied over the tape to protect it from UV degradation. Topcoats can be applied directly to the fabric backing. 2
