Q: I have never heard of 4EvaSeal® tapes before, is this a new technology?

While the 4EvaSeal® name is new, the tapes are not.  4EvaSeal® Tapes have been used in the roofing, RV, waterproofing and homeowner applications for over 20 years.  Prior to 2014 the products were sold exclusively through private label customers.  Now our tapes are available directly from the manufacturing source under the 4EvaSeal® name.  Contact Chase Corp. for a detailed history of 4EvaSeal® at 800-543-3458.

Q: Are the 4EvaSeal® tapes superior to competitive brands?

Yes.  Our products contain more adhesive, thicker backings, better physical properties, and a longer track record.

The tapes have approx. 27 mils of adhesive and our backings are 8 mils thick.  The additional thickness on the backing and adhesive means your valuable assets are better protected.  We believe that the performance of our tape should not be comprised to reduce cost, so we can improve our “bottom line”.

Our adhesive technology has been used for over 20 years in demanding applications under various product names.  Some competitive products on the market use unproven technology and descriptive terminology simply as marketing tools.  A true test of product performance can be measured by the physical properties of that product.

Q: What surfaces will 4EvaSeal® tape bond to?

The visco-elastomeric adhesive technology of 4EvaSeal® products will bond to almost any clean and a dry surface such as plastic, wood, metal, concrete, masonry, etc.  Dusty or porous surfaces should be primed with 4EvaSeal® primer prior to application of the tape.  4EvaSeal® will also bond to properly cleaned and prepared roofing materials such as EPDM, TPO, PVC, BUR, SBS, and APP.

Q: Is the 4EvaSeal® product UV stable?

When the tape will be permanently exposed to UV the 4EvaSeal® Multi-Purpose and 4EvaSeal® Aluminum tape should be used.  These tapes have a heavy duty film on the back that is fully resistant to UV and can be left exposed to the life of the tape product.

Q: Is 4EvaSeal® tape self-sealing?

4EvaSeal® tapes are self-sealing if used in areas where nails or screws will be installed through the tape.  To assure a permanent seal, it is recommended to warm the tape prior to fastening through it.  Fastening through cold tape will limit self-sealing capabilities.  In all cases, it is always recommended to try to prevent penetrating the tape for best performance.

Q: Can I paint over the 4EvaSeal® Fabric Backed Tape?

Yes. The 4EvaSeal® Fabric Backed Tape is designed to be painted. Paints or coatings applied to the top of the tape must have a high solids content and contain little to no solvent.  Typically, fabric backed tape is used with acrylic roof coatings or with other waterproofing systems.  The 4EvaSeal® Fabric Backed Tape is ideal for use with the CIM waterproofing systems.  For more information on CIM materials please visit www.cimind.com.

Q: Will 4EvaSeal® tape work under water?

4EvaSeal® should not be applied to wet surfaces or under water.

4EvaSeal® can be installed in areas that are subject to ponding water and constant immersion.  During installation, surfaces must be clean and dry to assure a strong bond.  Once installed and well-bonded, ponding water or immersion conditions will not deteriorate the performance of the 4EvaSeal® Tape.

Q: Where can I purchase 4EvaSeal®?

4EvaSeal® can be purchased from one of our 4EvaSeal® or CIM distribution channels.  Contact Chase Corp at 800-543-3458 to get the name of a distributor in your area.

Q: What is the size of a roll?

4EvaSeal® tape is available in a wide range of sizes.  Most rolls contain 50’ lengths of material and can be purchased in any width up to 48”.  Standard width sizes are 2”, 4”, 6”, and 12”.  Special widths will need to be custom ordered and make take several weeks to ship.

Q: Can the 4EvaSeal® Double Sided Tape be used to fill gaps?

Yes, the 4EvaSeal® Double Sided Tape can be rolled into a bead, ball, etc. to fill gaps and voids.

Q: Can the 4EvaSeal® double sided tape be used as a gasket between 2 materials?
