New AF 100 Aluminum Foil Tape with EasyPEEL™ Delivers a Smooth Start for a Fast Finish

Trusted UL 181A-P/B-FX Listed tape now enhanced with an easy-to-start crack and peel liner

HICKORY, N.C. (February 2016) – Dealing with a hard-to-start liner on a roll of tape while on the job can be frustrating. Not to mention the time, money and even material wasted on each and every job. Now there’s an easier way to start the liner and still get the airtight seal you demand as Shurtape has enhanced its trusted AF 100 UL 181A-P/B-FX Listed aluminum foil tape with EasyPEEL™, an innovative split liner technology that delivers a smooth start for a fast finish.

AF 100 with EasyPEEL is a quick and convenient way to achieve full system closure – and UL code compliance – in a variety of HVAC applications. Simply:

  • Crack: The liner is split down the middle, ensuring a quick and easy start, even while wearing work gloves to protect hands from cuts and frigid weather conditions.
  • Peel: The split liner provides additional stability to the tape, which helps to prevent it from rolling onto itself and reduces the amount of tape wasted on the job.
  • Apply: AF 100 with EasyPEEL is recommended for use in application temperatures ranging from -20 F to 260 F and in humid conditions when sealing joints, connections and seams on rigid fiberglass duct board and flexible air duct.

“Tape is a must for many jobs and for years, contractors have battled hard-to-start liners. In many cases, they’ve developed their own work around or just muscled through in an effort to get the job done quickly and efficiently,” said Glenn Walter, product manager for building and construction tapes. “The addition of EasyPEEL split liner technology to our AF 100 product gives contractors a convenient and hassle-free way to get the job done, saving them time, money and frustration, while continuing to deliver the airtight performance they demand.”
