ECHOTape Repair Tape Now Sold by The Home Depot via HomeDepot.com

Pressure-sensitive tape supplier, ECHOtape’s full repair line will be sold online by a home improvement retailer, The Home Depot via HomeDepot.com. Launched in 2014 at the beginning of the third quarter, the repair line provides contractors with an alternative to duct tapes, and is designed to deliver solutions for repairs, sealing and waterproofing.

“We are very excited to be working with such a trusted name in home improvement like The Home Depot,” says Risa Edelstein, director of marketing for ECHOtape. “We dedicate our business to providing the ultimate tape solutions for a variety of applications and now contractors, remodelers, retrofitters and builders across the nation can purchase our performance-based repair tapes.”

ECHOtape’s comprehensive repair line is geared towards building contractors. In total, seven tapes are available now on HomeDepot.com. The products include three types of repair tapes with different color options:

  • All Purpose Repair Tape: This tape leaves little residue in comparison to a duct tape and is thick and flexible. Ideal for stretching and wrapping, this tape can be used for temporary repairs as well as for rips, tears, gashes and holes. This tape is available in clear and white.
  • All Weather Repair Tape: This tape is made with a butyl-based adhesive, which makes it sticky enough for applications to concrete, stone, wood, glass, metal, plastic, cement, plywood, and damp fabrics, and is ideal for sealing holes and cracks. It is puncture- and tear-resistant, waterproof, and will not crack in temperatures as low as -30 F or fail in temperatures as high as 200 F if applied correctly. The tape is available in white, silver and black.
  • All Leak Repair Tape: Also made with butyl-based adhesive, it is considered an extreme adhesive tape with double the stickiness of the All Weather Repair Tape. It shares many of the same qualities, including being waterproof, but is also resistant to corrosion. Because of its high level of adhesive, it can be used for repairing leaks in roof joints, skylights, RVs, pools and ponds. This tape is available in black and white.

“We are committed to making our products widely available to contractors in the U.S.,” says Edelstein. “This is an important step in increasing convenience for purchasers, and we look forward to continuing to expand our reach and product availability.”

ECHOtape introduces new tapes to its Insulation Tape Line.

ECHOtape, a pressure sensitive tape supplier, introduced new tapes to its already impressive Insulation Tape Line. The Polypropylene Facing Tapes and All Temperature ASJ Facing Tapes showcase the company’s continued commitment to the building and construction sectors.

Introduced earlier this year, ECHOtape’s Insulation Tape Line initially featured four new products for residential and commercial contractors. These include an All Purpose Aluminum Foil Tape, an All Purpose White Aluminum Foil Tape, an All Temperature FSK Insulation Tape, and a Cold Weather Double Coated Polyester Tape to be used in the mechanical insulation industry, as well as with reflective insulation systems. The line expands to include Polypropylene Facing Tapes and All Temperature ASJ Facing Tape.

The Polypropylene Facing Tapes from ECHOtape are used with Lamtec faced insulation. Three products are being launched that include facing tapes used to join and seal WMP-VR, WMP-VR-R Plus and WMP-10 faced insulation. Every product is coated with a high performance cold weather acrylic adhesive and designed for tear resistant sealing. All of ECHOtape’s Polypropylene Facing Tapes are made with release liners that are easily removed and provide efficient on-site applications, are available in a number of sizes, and can be customized for a specific application.

ECHOtape’s All Temperature ASJ Facing Tape is made for use as a closure system for All Service Jacketing (ASJ) faced fiberglass duct board and pipe insulation. The All Temperature ASJ Facing Tape is also coated with ECHOtape’s high performance cold weather acrylic adhesive. Like the rest of the Insulation Tape Line, the All Temperature ASJ Facing Tape is made with release liners that are easily removed to provide efficient on-site applications. They are also available in a number of sizes and can be customized for specific applications.

Both the Polypropylene and All Temperature ASJ Facing Tapes will initially be available through Service Partners, one of the largest distributors of insulation products in the United States.
