Georgian Bar Tape

UK Industrial Tapes offers a range of high performance double sided tapes for the Georgian Bar (astragal) Bar Application. We recommend our FoamLINK and ProLINK products for the Georgian Bar Application as they have excellent UV resistance as well as tremendous peel and shear strength, which is a critical factor for this demanding application.

Our FoamLINK is available in 1mm and 1.6mm, the 1103H+ and our 1603H, are all double sided PE foam with a modified acrylic adhesive available in black or white. FoamLINK will provide a 100% waterproof bond and has excellent adhesion to glass and other Georgian Bar substrates and surfaces.

Our ProLINK is a Clear Pure Acrylic, available in 1mm and 1.5mm, the 1000R and our 1500R. ProLINK will also provide a 100% waterproof bond and will give a tremendous clean and clear sight line.

Recommendations to ensure you get the best results from our FoamLINK and ProLINK range:

1. Ensure that the surfaces the tape will be adhered to are clean from all dirt and dust by using an isopropanol cleaner.

2. Please note that if the bars are cut too tight to the frame, it will cause stress on the adhesive tape bond. We suggest to leave an approximate 1mm gap between the bar and the frame at each end as this will allow for expansion and contraction of the surfaces.

3. We recommend once the windows and bars have been glazed, to leave the finished product in despatch for at least 72 hours. This will make a noticeable difference to the performance of the tape.

4. All acrylic adhesive systems take 72 hours to reach their optimum bond.
