Reinforced Laminate with Zero Permeability Provides Vapor Barrier
3M™ VentureClad™ Heavy Duty Insulation Jacketing Tape 1579GCW is a 15.0 mil, heavy duty multi-layered laminate coated with an aggressive cold weather pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive that delivers excellent peel adhesion. Featuring zero permeability, this tape serves as a vapor barrier, making it ideal for applications where preventing air penetration is crucial. This tape is scrim reinforced for high (41 lbs./182 N) puncture and tear resistance, allowing it to be used in interior and exterior applications where extra durability is required. It installs easily without the use of special tools. It includes a release liner to assist in applying the tape and to help protect the adhesive prior to application.

3M™ VentureClad™ Heavy Duty Insulation Jacketing Tape 1579GCW is tested to ASTM E84 (10/10 Flame/Smoke Rating) and UL723 Classified (25/60 Flame/Smoke).

Recommended Applications

  • Vapor barrier for heavy duty insulation cladding and jacketing

Adheres in Cold Temperatures
3M™ VentureClad™ Heavy Duty Insulation Jacketing Tape 1579GCW features an aggressive pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive that adheres on contact to a variety of materials. It performs well under a broad range of temperatures ranging from -94°F to 300°F (-70°C to 149°C). Once bonded, this tape provides good holding power for extended periods with good aging properties and resists lifting and curling over time.
