Reinforced Scrim Helps Strengthen Backing and Reduce Stretch of Tape
3M™ Grid Air Sealing Tape 8068 is a 10 mil tape with a high-tack acrylic adhesive and a reinforcing scrim. This tape is designed for preventing air, vapor and moisture intrusion in building construction applications. The scrim helps reduce stretching and strengthens the backing.
