6 Inch Cover Tape
Sold per linear metre not per roll
Please enter quantity required in linear metres, i.e. for a 4 metre length, please enter 4 in the quantity field.
Used For: Used as a cover strip where joining two pieces of membrane where there is no overlap and a 3" splice tape can not be used.
Installation Notes:The EPDM surfaces to receive the tape must be dry, clean and free from dust and dirt. Wherever flashing strips are to be adhered to any other EPDM rubber the surface must be primed with ClassicBond Rubber Primer and allowed to dry (Touch dry)
Bonding to other surfaces: The tapes and splice tape can be used to join the EPDM rubber membrane on to both TPO and PVC roofing systems. The tapes are often used to repair damaged TPO and PVC as a cost effective alternative to replacing the whole flat roof. When joining the rubber membrane to uneven or granular built up roof surfaces, such felt or Asphalt, we recommend the use of a Termination bar and water cut off mastic (water block)

EPDM Rubber roofs have a 50 year life expectancy.
EPDM has been in commercial use since the 1960s. And many of those roofs are still around today.
Yes, EPDM Membranes require the substrate to be dry prior to installation. This is so the the adhesive & primers can effectively bond the rubber to roof deck. EPDM products will not adhere to wet or damp surfaces. Trapped moisture may vaporize and negatively affect the performance of the membranes.
Yes, ClassicBond membrane holds the British Board of Agrément certificate, No. 11/4853 (issued to Flex-R Ltd). It also holds fire ratings for each of the thicknesses available.
We recommentd a minimum tempereture of 5 degrees C for EPDM installation. This is due the the WBA adhesive being water based and lower temperetures may cause the adhesive to freeze over and fail.
