Pre-formed glazing tapes are available in various widths and lengths. Tapes remain resilient over a long period of time and have excellent adhesion to glass, metal, or wood when continuous pressure is applied. Tapes come as a roll with a release paper on one side. Both closed cell foam tape and butyl tape offered by Glass Fabricators, Inc. are compatible with GFI’s insulated glass units.
Sikaflex is designed to provide a fast permanent bond between mirror and drywall, wood, and metals. Since Sikaflex can be compressed to 1/32 of an inch, it makes it ideal for mirror installations requiring close tolerances such as mirrored overlays or mirrored furniture. For uneven surfaces, Sikaflex can build up to ¾ inch. Mirror Grip Sikaflex is manufactured by Sika Sealants.
Safety backing applied to the back of a mirror ensures that the mirror will hold in place even if it is broken or shattered, thus minimizing potential injury. The Category II tape is a heavy-duty woven white tape. Category II tap has passed ANSI Z97.1 1984 and the independent test Code 16 CFR 1201.
