DIY can be immensely satisfying … and occasionally very frustrating. But with Clean Room Construction Tape in your toolbox, you’ll have a real problem solver to hand.
Some of the ways it can help may surprise you.
A tape for all reasons
Designed and manufactured in the UK by Walther Strong, Clean Room Construction Tape does everything that duct, insulation and masking tape can – and more – but without their disadvantages.
What’s so special about Clean Room Tape?
The surface of Clean Room tape features embossed ridges that ensure it tears quickly and cleanly, so it’s easy to use accurately and without waste. This makes tasks like masking much easier, especially into 90° corners. Tricky jobs such as masking off small glass panes in cupboards and doors, are now much simpler and accurate.
Secondly, when you peel off Clean Room Tape, it doesn’t leave any residue – whatever the surface. Its high cohesion properties bind the tape’s molecules together, so when you remove it, all the adhesive comes away with the tape. This eliminates the annoying chore of cleaning off sticky marks – saving you valuable time.
It’s also UV-resistant so, even when exposed to direct sunlight over several months, it won’t mark the surface. In tests, the tape still removed without residue after over a year!
For clean rooms
You might think that because it tears easily and peels away cleanly, Clean Room Construction Tape isn’t strong. That’s definitely not the case.
Builders, plasterers and carpenters use Clean Room Tape because it’s tough and convenient. Its high adhesion qualities give it the strength to hold up large areas of polythene or dust sheets, and firmly secure temporary floor protection without leaving marks.
Use Clean Room Tape to protect wood beams or frames when you plaster the surrounding areas. The tape is impervious to plaster, so will peel off afterwards leaving the wood untouched. It also effectively protects vulnerable areas and edges while you’re filling, grinding, drilling, bricklaying, etc.
With its bright orange colour, Clean Room is easy to see. And because of its high adhesion, pieces of tape can be re-used several times. This makes it ideal for marking out room layouts; for example, to determine the position of kitchen or bathroom units. No more searching for hard-to-spot beige masking tape!
By the way, when you’re transporting those cabinets, a strip of Clean Room Tape holds the doors shut, preventing them swinging open and being damaged.
An invaluable ‘third hand’
Clean Room Construction Tape can take the place of clamps, screws or nails, to temporarily hold items together while gluing.
If you’ve ever struggled to clamp or pin a decorative moulding in position, you’ll find Clean Room Tape makes the job so much easier. Use strips of tape to hold the moulding firmly in place. Once the glue has set, the tape peels away, without marking.
Walther Strong Clean Room Construction Tape is perfect for all those occasions when you wish you had an extra hand! And not just for DIY; it’s also handy for craft work, such as holding down stencils or fabrics.
Clean Room Construction Tape for electrical jobs too
Clean Rroom Construction Tape insulates up to 600V, and because it tears cleanly and precisely, it’s useful for holding wiring together and labelling cables.
You can write on the tape in permanent marker pen or ballpoint; it will pull away cleanly so you can easily replace it with a fresh piece if you need to change the label.
The only tape you need in your toolbox?
Right now, you’re probably wondering whether you need to clutter your toolbox with masking, insulation and repair tape, when Walther Strong Clean Room Construction Tape covers almost everything they do.
While these specialist tapes have their uses, none of them offers the reliable, all-round versatility of Walther Strong Clean Room Construction Tape. It’s one of those tools which, once you’ve discovered it, you’ll always reach for first.
