Aluminum vent tape from Interstate Plastics is (generally) used for sealing the top and bottom edges of twinwall and multi-wall polycarbonate and acrylic sheets. Applied properly, it seals the polycarbonate interior, allowing moisture to exit while blocking debris and water, stopping mold, algae, insects and dust from accumulating within the walls of the polycarbonate and acrylic sheets. The aluminum tape also prevents noise created from the polycarbonate sheeting's expansion and contraction in response to temperature changes.Note: Vent tape must be purchased with twinwall sheets and profiles and is not available as a standalone purchase. Standalone purchases will be refunded.
6mm (.236") and 8mm (.315") wall should be used with 1"x108' tape. 10mm (.394") and 16mm (.630) wall should be used with 1.5"x108' tape.
Ensure the polycarbonate side that reads "UV side out" faces outward before applying the tape to prevent accidentally taping the top or flipping the sheet and leaving the wrong side exposed to the sun.
- Easy to apply
- Seals seams in polycarbonate applications.
- Blocks debris and water with proper drainage of condensation.
- Stops mold, algae, insects and dust from accumulating.
- Allows moisture to exit.
- Superior quick stick at normal temperatures.
- Superior low temperature performance at freezing temperature.
- Prevents excess noise from thermal expansion.

Although aluminum vent tape is primarily sold for the intent of sealing polycarbonate applications, we have seen customers use this tape in other applications including dryer hoses and light proofing.
Multiwall plastic materials, such as Lexan® and Polygal® polycarbonate sheets, or acrylic sheets, are highly suitable for improved light transmission. Correct moisture control in the channels of the multiwall sheet is essential for guaranteeing the transparency or translucency and long life of the panels. Moisture condenses in the channels of the multiwall panels due to differences in exterior and interior temperature. If this moisture is not removed, it will lead to the growth of algae and mold. Leaving the channels open may seem like a practical solution, but it does not prevent dust and insects from entering the channels, which greatly reduces the clarity. Simply installing an aluminum or plastic profile to the edges of the panels without using aluminum vent tape will not be enough protection against impurities.
- 6/8mm wall needs 1"x108' tape.
- 10/16mm wall needs 1.5"x108' tape.

This is NOT an aluminum tape. Do not use aluminum tape as it will tear and crack which defeats the purpose of taping the sheets. |

|2017-02-21||This is extremely durable and made to last for a long time, it is more than worth the forty something dollars to protect your investment! |
|2016-08-05||Super strong! A little hard to peel, takes some practice. |
|2015-11-10||Works very well.|
|2015-01-29||Strong and durable. Good price, just added to my twinwall order. Thanks!|
|2014-10-29||Please consider lowering the price. Good quality tape. |
|2014-09-26||A necessity for the twinwall and not a place you want to cheap out YOU WILL get leaks and fast! Solid, strong tape.|
|2014-04-10||Super strong. A great seal. I like that is came brand new. I have ordered online from other suppliers and found the cardboard moist and soggy which ruins the product. This stuff is great!|
|2014-03-07||the tape works great for multiwall - expensive but reliable adhesive product - will buy again|
|2013-05-14||This stuff works perfectly for any gaps that need sealing from rain. Very sticky adhesive, beware when removing. I had some adhesive stick behind, but I used a little bit of interstate plastics cleaner and it comes off fairly easy.|
