Shurtape® AF Series Cold Temperature Foil Tapes Designed for Diverse Weather Conditions

Airtight seals, even when temperature changes

HICKORY, N.C. (March 2013) – Work doesn’t stop just because the weather changes. Whether it’s a blizzard or a heat wave, choosing the right HVAC tape for your installation or repair is critical. Shurtape® AF Series cold temperature foil tapes are engineered to form airtight bonds on joints and seams – even when temperature conditions fluctuate.

Durable and resilient to withstand changes in the weather, AF Series cold temperature foil tapes are linered and feature an acrylic adhesive. They can be applied in temperatures ranging from -20 F to 260 F, and are useful for a variety of jobs and applications:

  • AF 100: UL 181A-P/B-FX printed aluminum foil tape for joining and sealing fiberglass ductboard and Class 1 Flex Duct.
  • AF 914: General-purpose aluminum foil tape for joining and sealing aluminum-backed or fibrous insulation, in addition to metal ductwork and sheet metal.
  • AF 975: Contractor-grade, 2.0-mil aluminum foil tape for joining and sealing aluminum-backed or fibrous insulation, in addition to metal ductwork and sheet metal.
  • AF 984: Maximum-strength, foil/scrim/kraft (FSK) tape for sealing seams in scrim-reinforced duct insulation.
  • AF 990: All Service Jacket (ASJ) tape used in cold and dual temperature systems to seal, seam and join scrim-reinforced pipe and duct insulation.

“You can’t control the temperature, but you can control the quality and reliability of your work,” said Glenn Walter, product manager for building and construction tapes. “These tapes are designed to create an airtight bond with no leaks, even when the temperature shifts, so you can be confident every job is done right.”

AF Series cold temperature foil tapes are tested in accordance with UL 723 and are also Shurtape Green Point Contributor Products – meaning they contribute to LEED®* certification points when combined with other eligible building materials.
