Breather Tape for 16mm polycarbonate
16mm polycarb with 38mm filter tape
Hight tack adhesive bands
38mm Filter Tape for 16mm Polycarbonate
5m, 10m or 33m lengths
Ventilated and self-adhesive!
High performance 38mm 'breathable' self-adhesive filter tape protects against ingress of dust, debris and insects in flutes of 16mm multi-wall polycarbonate sheeting.
When used as an anti-dust tape on the open ends of polycarbonate conservatory roof panels, Filtarite provides a clean breathable filter that also allows the escape of water vapour to prevent condensation forming.

Declaration of Performance
Tensile strength and elongation 45mm test width
Max Load: 179.21 (N 50mm) - mean result ** Strain at Max Load: 41.05% - mean result **
Water Vapour Transmission
Tested to BS 3177:1959 (1959) mean permeability 4474 (gm224h) **
Thermal Shock / Condensation
In accordance with MOAT 48:1991
This test procedure is intended to replicate the ability of the filter tape to resist the passage of water and therefore the formation of condensation within the cavities of the polycarbonate under wet/heat cycling conditions.

Fitting Anti-Dust Breather Tape
Fitting Anti-Dust Breather tape to your polycarbonate sheets is quite straight forward when you follow these simple steps.
- 1. Prepare the polycarbonate sheet
- Clean the end of the sheet where you will fit the tape. This is a good time to remove dirt or moisture from the flutes, which are the channels that run the length of the sheet. Ensure that the surface is clean and dry before...
- 2. Positioning tape over end
- Cut 50mm longer than the width of the sheet, to allow 25mm to wrap round both corners. Stick the pre-cut tape to the end of your sheet. Position vertically so that some tape rises above and an equal amount hangs below the end of the sheet. Then...
- 3. Fold tape over to secure
- Fold the overhanging strips of tape to the top and bottom face of the sheeting. Don't worry if the tape is a little longer than your sheet, you can just fold it round the end to...
- 4. Fit End Closure
- Fit a protective end closure over the sheet to prevent it from being harmed by the elements.
