Why not use a C-Channel or Ziplock® style closure instead of this hard-to-use stuff?
We have found that only this tape is robust enough to ensure a 100% airtight seal for the 8 hours of drying time. The C-channel and zipper closures are great for pump systems that cycle on and off continuously, but not for the TAP system.
What is sealing tape made of?
It is butyl tape which is actually uncured rubber. Similar to the stuff they seal car windshields with, the tape we use is just sticky enough to open and close whilst still making a strong seal.
How many times can I use this before replacing it?
Some customers have reported that they can use a tape seal for 40-50 times. Generally about 15- 20 is a more typical number of uses.
How do I get more uses out of the sealing tape?
If you remember to replace the paper strip back onto the tape BEFORE removing your pressing from the bag, it will stay much cleaner.
If you remove your project dragging it over the sticky tape, it will allow bits of foam, glue and sawdust to stick to it.
TIP: when doing your pressing, remove the paper strip and tuck it inside the bag before sealing it. That way, it will be right there for you to replace before removing your pressing.
2 rolls of sealing tape. Use this to replace worn out tape after your original seal and replacements are used up.
