Ultraviolet-resistant, five-ply laminate made with three layers of aluminum foil, including the outer layer, and two layers of polyester film. The insulation-facing tape is ideal for interior and exterior applications, officials say. Coated with a special acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive system, the tape can be used above or below freezing. It can be used for exterior finishing of air ducts, pipes and other open-air installations.
