Reasons to choose for Multifoil’s anti-dust tape

Did you know that condensation is a problem for polycarbonate sheets? However, condensation is a naturally occurring phenomenon. When water drops hit a surface that is cooler than the droplets, condensation forms. The anti-dust tape filter has a special surface treatment that causes rapid evacuation of condensation. We call this drainage. Condensation is known to be the lifeblood of fungus and algae, because they both need water to remain alive. The quicker the water is drained away, the better for the lifetime of the multi-wall sheets. Other manufacturers fail to drain quickly and thus create an environment that is excellent for fungus reproduction. Here are the six main reasons to choose for anti-dust tape:

  1. Condensation: thanks to the non-woven material the condensation is gently guided outside
  2. Resistant to insects, fungi and algae: the filter gives excellent protection
  3. Ventilation: The tape offers the right amount of ventilation
  4. Contraction and expansion: The anti-dust tape is designed to shrink and grow with the sheet. You will not anymore suffer from teared tape
  5. Coated with adhesive: The tape is coated with an adhesive and therefore easy to apply and reliable
  6. Non-woven material: since the tape is treated with high-quality non-woven, it keeps bacteria out of the polycarbonate multiwall sheet

How to apply the anti-dust tape on polycarbonate roofs

It is a misconception to put breather tape on both ends of a polycarbonate sheet. It is recommended to close the upper end with a sealing tape. The lower end should be taped with the anti-dust breather tape. However, if you want to use tape for barrel vaulted roofs, then it is recommended to use venting tape at both ends of the roof. It is not advisable to seal the sheet ends to keep condensation out, because it will still built up in the walls. You need to make sure the sheets have an exit to condensate. If you want to see how best to apply the anti-dust tape, there is technical literature available. This way you can avoid mistakes when applying the tape. Or you can ask us for more information about applying the anti-dust tape.

Application tools designed for anti-dust tape

The manufacturers of anti-dust tape have developed tools to process panels more quickly. Their goal is to make the production and installation process for the polycarbonate sheets more efficient. Especially for large usage of multiwall sheets. By using this table dispenser, you are able to process sheets much faster. The table dispenser comes in a handheld gun (or a table model dispenser). Since the anti-dust tapes are pressure sensitive, they need to be applied with pressure if you want the best tack. Multifoil has come up with a pressure roller, which is a useful tool to apply the tape with. This tool will reduce the cuts and burns on your fingers. They also have developed a pressure felt pad, which can be used for applying the tape with pressure.
