Tape Solutions for HVAC

Ensuring total system closure, air- and water tightness is essential for tapes used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) to generate consistent thermal comfort and good air quality in indoor and vehicular environments. Our HVAC foam and foam-in-place solutions are strong, flexible, designed to create a permanent seal without air leaks and have anti-microbial characteristics to protect people and structures for increased well-being where temperature control, removal of unpleasant smells and excessive moisture and air circulation are needed. UL listings and LEED qualifications as well as broad application conditions make it easy for you to find the solution that minimizes risk of failure, energy loss or even system failure in building & construction, automotive, rail, marine or aerospace applications.

Sustainability enhancements in commercial construction are the wave of the future. With a growing worldwide population and greater environmental changes, the need for heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) within construction is also on the rise. Serving as the respiratory system for buildings, it is essential to consider opportunities related to improving or revolutionizing HVAC in the fight for carbon neutrality.

HVAC systems comprise 40–60% of energy usage within buildings, translating to approximately 15% of total energy consumption worldwide. For this reason, HVAC systems are important targets for efficiency improvements. Companies are investing in more sustainable technologies and equipment to utilize less energy to heat, cool and run appliances, working together towards the achievement of net-zero carbon emissions.

A significant opportunity for improved efficiency of HVAC systems exists at the design stage. A proper design helps lower energy consumption, while providing a safe and comfortable indoor environment. To ensure optimal performance and achieve energy-saving goals, design engineers take into consideration all components that go into HVAC systems. Quality gasketing and sealing materials in HVAC applications allow for lower energy bills and an improved indoor environment that has significantly less dust or other pollutants, providing cleaner air and greater health benefits.
