Gaska Tape Products


Gaska Tape Products V Series foam tapes are closed cell in structure and completely seal out air, moisture, light and dust when compressed at least 30%. Formulated from durable Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) for a long service life, these products cushion against shock and vibration, and insulate against temperature and sound. This product line is not only ultraviolet resistant, but also resists most chemicals, acids and bases making this series the optimum choice for long-term durability. For details on the properties of this product series, and available adhesive packages go to Properties and Adhesives.
