3M™ VentureClad™ Insulation Jacketing System 1577CW-WM is used for cladding and jacketing applications and creates a vapor barrier for HVAC, ductwork, vessels and pipes. This conformable tape is able to conform to a curved or irregular surface. It offers zero permeability, installs without special tools and is highly puncture and tear resistant - ideal for any indoor or outdoor task. This laminate tape can withstand temperatures as cold as -40 °F/-40 °C and as hot as 248 °F/120 °C. It’s suitable for use on materials like fiberglass, polystyrene and conformable aerogel. It protects insulation against mold, UV, weather, oil and grease, chemicals, impact and mechanical abuse, corrosion under insulation (CUI). This tape qualifies for compliance credit for LEED® v4 and is UL723 classified. 3M™ VentureClad™ Insulation Jacketing System 1577CW-WM provides a reliable barrier and protection during jacketing and cladding operations.

Zero Permeability Cladding and Jacketing
The 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-WM 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-WM 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 300°F/149°C. Once bonded, this tape will provide good holding power for extended periods with good aging properties and 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 works well with many insulation types. Qualifies for compliance credit for LEED®. Additionally, it meets the FDA compositional requirements for indirect food contact.

Recommended Applications

  • Vapor barrier for insulation cladding and jacketing operations such as HVAC ductwork and piping
  • Interior and exterior ductwork (rectangular/round), pipes (straight runs, bends, intersections), and vessels 
  • Weather protection system in extreme environmental conditions

The Science of Better Adhesion from 3M
Since 1925 when one of our lab assistants invented masking tape, 3M has been applying science to life – developing adhesive products and technologies that help entire industries and individual businesses worldwide. The work that began with a single 3M engineer now spans decades and generations. And all of it goes into each of our industrial tapes and adhesives, like 3M™ VentureClad™ Insulation Jacketing Tape 1577CW-WM, to help businesses like yours operate faster, better and more efficiently.
