Additional Product Information:
The continuous rubber shim works to prevent sealant squeeze-out because it is resilient to pressure exerted by building and glass expansion or contraction. It also helps prevent glass breakage by eliminating pressure points created by improper shimming. The continuous shim eliminates the need for preshimming the lite before installing the tape. Tremco Pre-Shimmed tape has good adhesion, heat resistance, sealant compatibility, and resistance to weathering. It can be used in conjunction with many glazing systems.
Service temperature range: -65 to 200°F (-54 to 93°C).
Application temperature: 20 to 120°F (-7 to 49°C).
Do not compression glaze glass with Pre-Shimmed Tape having less than 3 millimeter (1/8 inch) shim. Not for use in joints subjected to continuous water immersion. Although generally compatible with most sealants, a compatibility test should be requested when used in conjunction with sealants other than Tremco sealants.
