Bond It FLASHING TAPE comprises heavy-duty facing coated with a minimum 1.2mm thickness of pressure sensitive modified bitumen. The adhesive content is specially formulated for flexibility at low temperatures and resistance to flow at high temperatures and an immediate bond is obtained by applying firm hand pressure. The strength of the bond increases with time. The thickness of the self-adhesive bitumen ensures very close contact, even on comparatively rough surfaces, while the product’s durability provides long-lasting protection combined with an attractive appearance. Supplied in rolls for fast and clean application and conforms readily to awkward contours, providing excellent weather protection. It can be used for all flashing and roofing applications and general water sealing repairs on masonry, asbestos, timber, metal or glass. No special skills or tools are required.

Any moss or lichen should be removed using a fungicidal wash such as Bond It MOULD STOP (find it in our shop). Porous or rough surfaces should be primed with the included BITUMEN PRIMER and allowed to dry before applying FLASHING TAPE. In very cold weather Tape should be stored indoors in warm (18°C+) conditions overnight before use.
