BudVent™

Striped Adhesive Venting Tape

BudVent™ is a strong polypropylene, non-woven fabric with adhesive stripes that are covered by a release liner. It is highly permeable material. BudVent™ is specifically designed to cover vent holes and seams. It holds foam insulation in and allows more air and gas to escape during foam-in-place injection. BudVent™ venting tape allows foam to draw more efficiently throughout the entire cavity. By eliminating foam voids and allowing the foam to cure faster, BudVent™ reduces non-conformances, may lower foam usage, and decreases labor hours throughout the production process. Customers using other vent tape, Permagum and masking tape virtually eliminated foam leaks and cleanup time by switching to just BudVent™. Because it comes on a release liner, this product is typically used in custom roll widths and butt cut lengths.
