Why You Need It
+ Sticks to exterior surfaces in temperatures ranging from -20°F to 200°F.
+ Sticks to the toughest surfaces in the most extreme environments.

+ Fifty-year aging tests show it retains over 60% of its original adhesion and 100% of its tensile strength.
Acrylic adhesive tape is so much easier to use than common butyl tapes. Butyl tapes look like black goo and they tend to leak and get stuck to themselves just in the roll.
The adhesive on G-Tape has a negative charge. Steel nails have a positive charge. So the adhesive is attracted to the steel and then seeps into all the nooks and crannies of the wood surface to make a complete seal for permanent moisture protection.
G-Tape is the cheapest way to protect your joists and decking from premature rot.
It's so much easier to use than many alternatives and works easily in a range of temperatures.
