Emseal offers 2 Types of Log Home Tapes:
CLASSIC: For more than 30 years EMSEAL has offered an economical, expanding, open-cell, foam tape impregnated with waterbased, acrylic-modified asphalt.
Classic LogHomeTape provides UV stability and sealing ability, as well as resistance to aging and to vermin (bugs, rodents, birds, etc.).
ACRYLIC: EMSEAL Acrylic Log HomeTape was developed in the early 1980’s using in place of asphalt, a water-based, acrylic impregnation. Compatible with liquid sealants, chinking, and stains and preservatives, it is clean-handling and free from visible contact staining.
EMSEAL Acrylic LogHomeTape is particularly suitable for construction methods such as Swedish cope and is widely used by handcrafters. It is also suitable for flat-on-flat construction where sealant tape is installed at the outer edges of the logs AND where sprayed-on log sealer or stain may come in contact with the tape.
