3M™ Construction Seaming Tape 8087 is a red construction sealing tape designed to seal seams on housewrap and insulated sheathing products. It performs exceptionally well in cold temperature applications. This tape features a pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive mounted on a biaxially orientated polypropylene film.
Excellent cold temperature adhesion to housewrap and polyethylene in temperatures as low as 14°F/-10°C
UV resistant film helps protect against degradation by sunlight
Backing is conformable to help provide adhesion to a variety of curved and irregular surfaces
Low moisture vapor transmission rate does not compromise performance of vapor barriers
Acrylic adhesive offers good instant adhesion to a wide variety of materials, and once adhered provides good holding power while resisting lifting and curling
Red color provides good contrast for quick visual inspection
Industrial Grade Protection
3M™ Construction Seaming Tape 8087 gives you the versatility for seaming, splicing, sealing or repairing many materials used for moisture barriers inside and outside. This includes sheathing, weather resistant barriers and moisture barriers. This tape is formed from a rugged biaxially orientated polypropylene film backing which is coated with a 3M™ industrial grade pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive. The backing is conformable to irregular surfaces and contours to help ensure a tight seal and will remain flexible even at temperatures as cold as -4°F/-20°C. This tape is UV stabilized and resistant to help protect against degradation by sunlight. A low moisture vapor transmission rate does not compromise performance of vapor barriers. The tape unwinds easily by hand, or with a 3M™ hand-held applicator. 3M™ Construction Seaming Tape 8087 is designed for a variety of applications in the construction industry, including seaming, splicing and repairing. Taping seams aids in reducing air infiltration, improves the effectiveness of insulation and reduces heating and cooling costs.
Seal seams on housewrap and insulated sheathing products
Seaming polyethylene vapor barriers
Repair holes and tears in exterior building wraps
Seaming extruded foam products such as STYROFOAM™ brand foam
Performs Even in Cold Temperatures
3M™ Construction Seaming Tape 8087 features a pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive that performs well, even in cold temperatures. This adhesive adheres immediately on contact to a variety of materials such as housewrap, insulated sheathing, vapor barrier film and unfinished wood. It performs at temperatures as low as 14°F/-10°C. If this tape is applied at cold temperatures, adhesion will increase as temperature warms or with the sun's rays. Once bonded this tape will provide good holding power for extended periods with good aging and UV resistance. It will resist lifting and curling.
3M™ Construction Seaming Tape 8087 meets the criteria to contribute to the Environmental Quality ("EQ") Credit 41.: Low-Emitting Materials: Adhesives & Sealants under the United States Green Building Council's Rating System for New Construction & Major Renovations (LEED-NC), Version 2.2, Core and Shell (LEED_CS), Version 2.0, and Commercial Interiors (LEED_CI), Version 2.0.
