What is tape coat?


Tape coat is a material used to help seal pre-cast concrete barrel joints in manholes. Tape coat is applied around the outside of each barrel joint to prevent leakage at the joint connection. Tape coat is a cold applied, self-adhering tape that helps bond the joints together. Tape coat is used in conjunction with barrel gaskets and Conseal sealant to seal joints in concrete manhole structures supplied by Romtec Utilities. Additionally, the tape coat used by Romtec Utilities is also environmentally friendly.
