Venture Tape Corp. introduced Venture Tape 1512, a self-wound, low-tack protective polyethylene film designed to wrap and protect ductwork. Many building code requirements call for ductwork to be wrapped prior to being sent to the jobsite. Venture Tape 1512 protects ductwork in the sheet metal shop before it is shipped. According to Venture Tape representatives, the film seals the edges of the duct, preventing moisture, dirt, and foreign debris from entering it. At the jobsite, the film is removed without leaving any residue, and the duct can be installed immediately. Venture Tape 1512 provides protection for a variety of surfaces and is available in 24-inch by 200-foot and 36-inch by 100-foot rolls.
