Wraptite Tape by the A. Proctor Group provides an ideal solution to stopping unnecessary air leakage in cavity wall systems when installed in conjunction with insulation boards.

Energy efficiency targets and regulations have brought airtight buildings to the forefront of building design – air leakage can result in a significant reduction in the thermal performance and efficiency of a structure.

Whilst standard aluminium tape can provide a seal against air leakage, it may also prevent the movement of moisture vapour, leading to potential problems and damage to the boards underneath over time.

Wraptite Tape has been designed with high vapour permeability, so that it will act as an effective airtight barrier whilst also allowing any water vapour to escape the wall construction efficiently. This helps avoid any interstitial condensation and reduces the probability of mould, mildew and timber distortion.
