3M™ FSK Facing Tape 1525CW is an adhesive tape that is used for sealing and patching FSK-faced duct wrap insulation, as well as a vapor seal for reinforced aluminum faced fiberglass, mineral wool thermal insulation, and sheet metal. Made with foil/scrim/kraft (FSK) lamination that is coated with a solvent acrylic, pressure-sensitive adhesive, this tape bonds and seals at temperatures as low as -10 °F (-23 °C). While designed for cold weather, it also offers excellent performance in demanding heat and humidity conditions. It easily conforms to irregular surfaces and shapes and offers easy removal for a simple application process. This tape meets the UL723 flame/smoke rating, as well as the ASTM specification C1136, Type II and IV, for safe use. For best results, store tape in a cool, dry environment. Achieve a durable seal during demanding and cold weather applications with 3M™ FSK Facing Tape 1525CW.
Tri-Directional Reinforced Backing
3M™ Venture Tape™ FSK Facing Tape 1525CW is a 5.5 mil tri-directional reinforced tape that excels in demanding temperature and humidity applications. It is comprised of a foil/scrim/kaft laminated backing coated with a cold weather acrylic adhesive. This backing is flexible and conforms well to irregular surfaces and curves. With superior resistance to weathering, mold, UV and environmental conditions, this tape performs extremely well in demanding cold and hot temperature applications. It applies easily to both fibrous and sheet metal ductwork and is easily installed without special tools or application methods.
3M™ Venture Tape™ FSK Facing Tape 1525CW is UL723 Classified (10/10 Flame/Smoke Rating). The facing meets ASTM C1136 type II and IV.
Ultimate in Cold Weather Tapes
3M™ Venture Tape™ FSK Facing Tape 1525CW is coated with a pressure sensitive, cold weather solvent acrylic adhesive specifically designed for cold weather applications, though this adhesive performs well at normal and high temperatures as well. This adhesive features a quick stick at normal temperatures and superior low temperature performance. With a service temperature ranging from -40°F/-40°C to 240°F/116°C, this tape can be applied in a variety of environmental conditions. Once bonded, it will provide good holding power for extended periods with good aging properties that resist lifting and curling.
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 adhesive, like 3M™ Venture Tape™ FSK Facing Tape 1525CW – to help businesses like yours operate faster, better and more efficiently.
