In the building and construction industry, flashing tapes have become a standard tool, offering exceptional performance as an alternative to traditional fastening, bonding, mounting, and sealing methods.

Flashing tapes, known for their versatile advantages in the construction industry, heavily rely on release liners to achieve seamless application and effective protection against water infiltration and air leakage in various critical tasks, such as sealing roof edges, windows, and doors. The release liners play a crucial role as backing material, safeguarding the adhesive surface of flashing tapes during storage and handling.

When ready for use, the release liner is easily peeled off, allowing for smooth and precise application onto the desired surfaces. This not only streamlines the installation process but also maintains the integrity of the adhesive, ensuring the needed performance when creating a secure and weather-resistant seal.

The user-friendliness of flashing tapes is significantly enhanced by the presence of release liners. Contractors and builders appreciate the simplicity of peel-and-stick application, made possible by the release liners, which eliminate the need for specialized tools or equipment. As a result, labor costs are reduced, and time efficiency is improved during construction projects. Additionally, the use of release liners facilitates customization, as flashing tapes come in various adhesive options to match the specific demands of each application.

From high-strength bonding to ensuring excellent adhesion to different substrates, the tailored solutions provided by release liner-equipped flashing tapes cater to diverse construction requirements, making them a go-to choice for modern construction practices that demand reliability, efficiency, and long-lasting performance against the elements.

Highly Specialized Uses for Release Liners

The release liners utilized in flashing tapes face specific and rigorous demands. These liners must meet the following requirements:

• Compatibility with a diverse range of aggressive adhesives used for bonding to various substrates.
• Ability to withstand thick adhesives, as flashing tape adhesives can reach up to 40 mils in thickness.
• Optimal performance across a wide spectrum of indoor and outdoor application temperatures.
• Ability to be precisely slit into multiple roll widths to accommodate various construction needs.
• Overall ease of removal when onsite.

At Fox River Associates, our release liners come in two options: paper and film. Paper release liners offer excellent moisture stability, stiffness, and the flexibility to be die-cut and printed according to specific requirements. On the other hand, film release liners provide impressive puncture-resistance, tear-resistance, and demonstrate superior performance in handling various temperatures and chemical exposure.
