Tape adheres to most surfaces

MFM Building Products Corp. has made available MFM Seal & Coat™ EiFS Tape, a self-adhering membrane composed of a polyester fabric laminated to a rubberized asphalt adhesive.

The tape is designed to be used as a waterproofing tape. The rubberized adhesive self-seals around common fasteners and is intended to be covered by stucco, a coating, or by siding and trim.

The tape reportedly will adhere to most clean, dry surfaces, including masonry, concrete, house wrap, foam insulation board, insulating concrete form, plywood, oriented strand board, rigid vinyl, aluminum and other common construction materials. It has a thickness of 30 mils; can be applied in temperatures from 40 F to 110 F; and is available in 4-, 6- or 9-inch-wide by 100-foot-long rolls.
