The airtightness of a building is important for a number of reasons, as it directly affects the wellbeing of the residents within as well as the energy efficiency of the overall structure. Airtightness is central to achieving a NZEB (Nearly Zero Energy Building) standards, as it has a direct effect on the amount of energy required to heat a space.
Multi-layer tapes that combine all the necessary properties within one solution help to ensure a reliably airtight envelope by also cutting down on the mistakes. One of the key products for this is illbruck TP654 illmod trio 1500, an impregnated, pre-compressed multi-functional window sealing tape based on 2 new technologies:
- A three-layer foam structure: the grey foam is an airtight closed cell foam which provides a 100% secure airtight connection to the window frame and the wall. The black foam has a slow recovery time which allows a successful installation.
- An airtight layer is inserted inside the tape, connecting the grey foam and the black foam from the top to the bottom.
Combined, these 2 technologies provide a high-performance sealing level with a driving rain resistance up to 1050 Pa and an airtightness level more than double the requirements.
illbruck's multifunctional tape, TP654 illmod TRIO 1050, is the perfect solution to saving energy and ensuring window joints are airtight.
