3M™ Construction Seaming Tape 8087CW is a versatile sheathing tape designed for seaming, splicing, sealing and repairing materials used for moisture barriers, both inside and out. This includes sheathing, weather resistant barriers and moisture barriers. Taping seams aids in reducing air infiltration, improves the effectiveness of insulation and reduces heating and cooling costs. This tape is formed from a rugged biaxially oriented polypropylene film backing which is coated with an aggressive industrial grade pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive. The backing is conformable to irregular surfaces and contours to help ensure a tight seal. It remains flexible when cold, can be applied from 10°F/-23°C to 185°F/85°C and has a service temperature range from -40°F/-40°C to 185°F/85°C. This tape features a low moisture vapor transmission rate and does not compromise the performance of vapor barriers. It unwinds easily by hand or with a 3M hand-held applicator.
