Thank you for your question. Odds are that the tape will not remove perfectly from the duct surface as it is designed to provide a long term seal but you should be able to remove it or cut it away well enough to clean your duct and then re-apply. Best of luck with your project.
Thank you for bringing the discrepancy to our attention. The product sheet requires an update. The correct low operating temperature for Foil Mastic is -20F.
Thank you for your question. Nashua Foil Mastic Sealant Tape, once installed, has an excellent high/low temperature range from -20F to 200F.
Thank you for your question. Nashua Foilmastic is actually a foil tape - the difference between the foil tape products Nashua offers is the adhesive formulation. This particular adhesive is an extremely thick butyl rubber formulation that bonds permanently to surfaces, fills gaps, and provides a water and air-tight seal. This particular product has also been evaluated for use on pressurized sheet metal duct systems and is code-approved for use on flexible ducts.
Thank you for your question. While the product does have a rubber scent due to its raw materials, we do not have any data specific, nor is there any standardized testing, to evaluate how long that scent might be detectable and/or problematic for persons with chemical sensitivity. As with any tape application, we recommend a controlled test prior to full installation.
Yes it should
A dish soap and isopropyl alcohol. I use Dawn dish soap and rubbing alcohol.
Yes, it could be used for that.
Thank you for your question. You can leak test and/or activate the system immediately after installation. Best of luck with your project.
