Shurtape IT-100 Condensation-Inhibiting Foam Pipe Wrap Insulation Tape [Discontinued]
Before ordering, please read the "Product Description & Specs" tab content for more information about this item.
Shurtape IT-100 Pipe Wrap Insulation Tape is a 43 mil foam tape, utilizing a closed-cell elastomeric insulation backing, used to cover pipes to inhibit condensation. Designed for covering cold pipes to prevent condensation dripping, or covering hot pipes to reduce heat loss on a variety of pipe surfaces. The aggressive acrylic adhesive adheres well to metal pipes and PVC. Shurtape IT 100 is used for pipe wrapping so only has adhesive on one side of the tape. Thermal conductivity is 0.28 at 75°F, in accordance with ASTM C-177. Made in the U.S.

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths
5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:
Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally
- 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
- 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
- 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width
Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

QUESTION: How thick is the foam itself in mm? I don't understand the mil system used.
ANSWER: A mil is 1/1000 of an inch. The thickness of this product without the release liner is 118 mils (or .118 inches) which is around 3mm.

QUESTION: How well does this product adhere to PVC pipes?
ANSWER: Shurtape IT-100 is designed to prevent condensation drip on a variety of pipe surfaces, utilizing a closed cell elastomeric insulation backing and an aggressive acrylic adhesive that adheres well to metal pipes and PVC. As always, it is best to use a small section or “ test” section of pipe to determine the suitability for a particular job. Hope this helps answer your question and thanks for shopping at FindTape.com.

QUESTION: Can I use Shurtape on PVC pipes?
ANSWER: Absolutely, Shurtape sticks to metal and pvc. I have used it on both. make sure you follow the manufacturers directions regarding how to install on pipes. I used it on all my metal and pvc pipes in my basement and it stopped the sweating 100%.

hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
