Fireproof and High Temperature Resistant Tape

Features

Fireproof Tape

Megasorber Soundmesh G8 tape is a specialty engineering tape designed for tough and harsh applications. It utilises a unique fireproof material 'Soundmesh G8' (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canada Patent No. 2674986, Australian Patent No. 200926197) combined with a high temperature resistant adhesive.

The facing material, Soundmesh G8, has BS 476 Part 4 "Non-combustible" classification and BCA (Building Code of Australia) Group 1 fire Classification (AS/NZS 3837). It complies with IMO Resolution A653(16) requirements. It has high temperature resistance up to 550°C.

Megasorber Soundmesh G8 tape has an extremely aggressive tack which provides excellent initial holding power. It is a high temperature resistant tape and is capable of operating continuously from -29°C to +110°C and intermittently to +138°C.

Megasorber Soundmesh G8 tape is extremely tough and durable. It is puncture and tear resistant. It also provides excellent thermal and heat insulation properties.

It is supplied with standard colours of grey (GR), black (BK), sandstone (SS) and white (WH). A special water / fluid repellent G8 option is also available.

IMPORTANT NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER

Specifications are subject to change without notice. Please contact us for the latest version. "Fireproof", "Non-flammable", "Non-combustible" means the product has successfully passed AS/NZS 3837, IS0 5660-1, ASTM E1354 Group 1 fire rating (AWTA test report No. 7-566397-CV). Patented Soundmesh G8 (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canada Patent No. 2674986, Australia Patent No. 2009206197). The data listed in this data sheet are typical or average values based on tests conducted by independent laboratories or by the manufacturer. They are indicative only of the results obtained in such tests and should not be considered as guaranteed maximums or minimums. Materials and installation methods must be tested under actual service to determine their suitability for a particular purpose.

Installation Instructions

Important Notice and Disclaimer: These recommendations are for general guidance only. Installation methods must be tested under actual service conditions to determine their suitability for a particular purpose.

  • Clean substrate surface with Megasorber AC5 Adhesive Cleaner or similar. The substrate surface must be flat, dry, free of oil, dust, grease and other contaminants.
  • Soundmesh G8 tape must be firmly pressed against the substrate upon application to ensure the adhesive has full contact with the substrate.
  • For joins that are not level, it is recommended that the mechanical fixing method (such as pins) is used to compress the butt join to the same level and to secure the tape. Without the mechanical fixing methods, the tape may separate and delaminate from the join.
  • The application temperature is recommended to be at least above 10°C.
  • Soundmesh G8 tape is not recommended for surfaces with an uneven, wrinkle or pebbled finish.
  • For products with water repellent G8 facing, the G8 tape must be applied with heat and pressure, such as a hot iron or hot air-gun plus a pressure roller.
  • Soundmesh G8 tape may not be suitable for low surface energy substrates. An adhesion test is recommended if in doubt.
