An Extra-Strong Adhesive Tape that’s 100% WaterproofOctober 18, 2016
Go to the tapes section at any TBS branch and you’ll see a colourful character called American Duct Tape (formerly Jaffa Tape), from Everbuild. It’s strong, thick and 100% waterproof. It also has very good adhesive properties.
For example, if you’ve ever tried joining tarpaulins together with ordinary tape, you’ve probably found them unstuck again after a wet or windy night. This shouldn’t happen with Jaffa Tape. Other uses of Jaffa Tape include:
- Windproofing plastic over a frame or scaffolding
- Waterproofing openings for doors or windows, or exposed roofing
- Vertical or overhead uses
- Temporarily hold DPM, timber, guttering or sheet material so you don’t need to clamp.
The Everbuild website has a video clip showing Jaffa Tape in use. Jaffa Tape comes in 25m rolls at 50mm wide – and only in orange!
So, if you’re “stuck” over how to stick things, call by TBS for some Jaffa Tape!
