Protect Your Investment with Form Flash from Protecto Wrap
- Jan 15, 2013
Denver—Ben Franklin probably didn’t have apartment communities in mind when he coined his famous adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” but there is probably no other asset class where preventative maintenance is more important. Keeping a waterproof and draft-free community is a constant process, but a new tool from Protecto Wrap is here to help keep your asset sealed off from the elements (and vermin).
Form Flash 1 is the newest and most advanced flashing tape on the market. The peel-and-stick flexible tape serves as a primary air and moisture seal around wall openings and penetrations. It is a permanent solution that forms an air/vapor and insect/rodent barrier that not only protects, but also increases the energy efficiency and Energy Star rating of any residential or commercial structure. Protecto Form Flash 1 can also be used to span the voids between service components and wall surfaces by sealing any remaining gaps, holes or leaks. This eliminates moisture intrusion and the threat of black mold.
Some of the most useful applications of the flashing tape include sealing around pipes, gas lines, electrical outlets, dryer vents, conduits, plumbing, phone cables and fiber optic lines. Protecto Form Flash 1 can also be used as a permanent flashing seal on the exterior or interior walls, under sinks, on basement walls and in attic spaces.
Rolls come in lengths of 15 feet with optional widths of 4 or 6 inches. The black colored tape is 50mm thick and has a tensile strength of 120 psi. For more information, including technical data, visit Protecto Wrap’s website.
