Instructions For XFasten Butyl Seal Tape

1. Before installing the XFasten Butyl Seal Tape, it would be best to chill it by storing the fridge for 2-3 hours. This will make it more manageable. This step is optional, but a butyl tape that has been cooled down will be easier to manage and conform. 

2. Ensure that the surface where you would install the Butyl Seal Tape is clean, dry, and dust-free. Thoroughly clean the area with alcohol solution and let it completely dry before applying the tape.

3. Peel the tape from the roll. The tape itself is easy to tear, so you shouldn’t have any problem. An important note to make, though: make sure not to touch the adhesive side too much, as oils from your hands or any other foreign materials can contaminate the adhesive and lessen its bonding strength.

4. Conform the tape with the surface’s texture to eliminate any gaps that may exist in between the tape and the surface. The repair tape is conformable, so make sure that you mold and press it against the surface’s bumps, curves, and empty areas, covering every possible hole.

5. Roll many layers of the tape to make the butyl patch thicker. This setup would significantly increase the application's strength, stability & air and water-tight properties. Eliminate any air bubbles that may exist by applying pressure on the application area.

6. You can trim any adhesive that oozes out using a plastic knife or any plastic card.

7.Wet your fingers with soapy water (just a normal 50-50 mix of water and soap), and rub it on the tape’s surface. This will smoothen the butyl rubber and reduce any bumps or lumps.
