Structural Glazing Spacer for Field and Shop Glazing
Superb Spacer for Two and Four Sided Structural Silicone Glazing Systems
Chemically Compatible with All Silicones Tested
CRL Norton V2100 Thermalbond Tape is a semi-rigid foam tape with an aggressive pressure-sensitive adhesive. This high density tape has a specially formulated cellular substrate, and is used as a spacer for joint dimension control in structural silicone glazing systems. It is the most widely used spacer tape for structural silicone systems.
V2100 has proven to be compatible with all commercial silicone sealants used for structural glazing. It has a highly aggressive adhesive on both sides, and a semi-rigid, open cell structure that maintains the required spacing, and allows air and moisture to reach the silicone to allow optimum curing. Its low conductivity reduces heat transfer and inhibits condensation on windows, doors and metal systems. It comes only in an architectural black finish, and five stock sizes.
Thickness of Tape: 1/4 in (6 mm)
Width of Tape: 3/8 in (9.5 mm)
Feet per Roll: 50 ft (15 m)
Additional Product Information:
V2100 tape is designed: as a spacer for glass, metal, stone, mineral cement and plastic panels in structural silicone glazing systems, including two-and four-sided structural silicone glazing of curtain walls, storefronts, skylights and windows; to temporarily secure glazing or panels to framework in shop fabrication of unitized structural silicone glazing and cladding systems; to temporarily secure lightweight veneers to substrates while permanent structural silicone adhesives are curing; as a thermal break to reduce the conduction of heat; to provide an even sight line in vision areas.
V2100 Thermalbond Spacer Tapes are for use as spacers only. Their adhesive properties cannot be used as part of the permanent fastening system or in any way to reduce the amount of silicone adhesive recommended by the silicone manufacturer. With some surfaces, it may be necessary to prime the surface with Norton Tite-R-Bond adhesion promoter.
