VK Series Tape from Capital Tape is used within curtain wall systems to provide security and a barrier between the glass and frame. When you’ve got a lot riding on the structural integrity of your project, you need a heavy density glazing tape from Capital Tape. The VK Series Glazing Tape is very tough, very dense, and virtually invincible which makes it a perfect choice for:

  • Curtain wall structural silicone applications.
  • Any application that relies on costly, high-density urethane gasketing for spacing, vibration, dampening or cushioning.
  • Excellent adhesion to stainless steel, glass, aluminum, painted metal and vinyl.
