Venture Tape Corp. introduced the VentureFlash 800, a three-ply, zero-perm laminate coated with a special cold-weather-acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive system. VentureFlash combines quick stick at normal temperatures with superior low temperature performance below freezing, according to the company. It can be used with all window and door products, including vinyl, aluminum, wood or fiberglass and can be used in metal building construction. The company claims that it is an alternative to rubber-based adhesives and because of its cold weather acrylic base, VentureFlash adheres better than butyl or other rubber-based adhesives. VentureFlash 800 is self-adhering and has a moisture and vapor barrier to fight mold, mildew and decay. It is the first in a new series of flashing products by Venture Tape designed for the residential and commercial construction markets.
