CHICAGO — Hardcast introduced an indoor/outdoor duct sealant called Foil-Grip 1402 181BFX. This UL 181-listed duct sealant on a roll offers HVAC contractors a means of sealing ducts for both the interior and exterior of buildings.

Foil-Grip is a pressure-sensitive duct joint and general-purpose rolled sealant that provides an instant water-resistant grip to sheet metal, duct board, flex duct, PVC-coated duct, and duct wrap vapor barriers, says the company. Produced with a mill finish aluminum substrate in conjunction with a butyl adhesive/sealant, it may be used for all applications including sub-grade applications on PVC-coated duct, the company says.

The product is designed to save contractors time and money by sealing on contact and allowing multiple indoor/outdoor uses, enabling installers/technicians to carry only one duct sealing system, states the company.
