Features:

1.5" x 100'
Has reinforcement inside to eliminate stretching
This is the original Foundation Seal Tape and the only one installed by our professionals
This tape saves HOURS of labor
Surface must be dry and lightly swept for adhesion

Foundation Seal Tape (FST) is used to seal the vapor barrier to the foundation wall. When installed to a completely dry, clean (the concrete must be brushed off to remove loose debris- DO NOT USE A WIRE BRUSH- if the foundation is damp it will not stick well) foundation wall the bond is good enough to hold the vapor barrier to the wall temporarily (several hours/days) until the Foundation Pins are installed. If the foundation wall is wet in the area it will be installed and it will not bond then a polyurethane caulk must be used. This tape is 1.5" x 108' and has a reinforcement inside the tape to eliminate stretching like bubble gum. This is important because without the reinforcement this tape is impossible to apply in a crawl space. Most all other tapes on the market, similar to this one, do not have the reinforcement. 

IMPORTANT-
Using a wire brush will create dust and debris that fills the pores of the block. When this happens the FST loses most of its grip to the block due to adhering to the dust in the pores rather than the block itself. No matter how much soft brushing you do AFTER the wire brush the FST will likely not stick. 

**During cold month installations this product must be stored indoors prior to use. This product is not meant for installations that have WET or very DAMP foundation walls please use the polyurethane caulk.

* Product Update- As of March 21, 2012 we have made several performance improvements to our Foundation Seal Tape™. 

First- We improved the formula in making our FST™, it now has 10x's the bonding power of our original FST™. Our original formula did a great job, but our new formula shows our continued efforts in research and our commitment to lead this industry by developing the most advanced products available.
Second- We improved the FST™ to adhere better to damp surfaces. Tests have shown the new formula can adhere to a "damp" surface, which is a major improvement. Since there are varying degrees of "damp" your results may vary. 
Third- We made the rolls lighter. When we increased the adhesion strength we were able to lighten the roll's weight and use less material. It created a balance between better performance and no increase in cost.
Fourth- We made it longer. Because we could make the rolls lighter it gave us the option to add some length to the roll, therefore making an even better value. The new roll size is 1.5" x 108' instead of 100' in the old formula.
Fifth- We work vary hard to make all of our products in the U.S. or Canada when possible. With some products it simply isn't, however the new FST™is now made in America. Investing in OUR country is as important to us as it is to you.

The new FST™ is in stock and ships immediately. 

**We always recommend getting a few tubes of Poly Caulk to make sure you have enough material to get a good seal to the foundation and to handle any damp areas on the foundation walls. Remember when you figure your FST to include going under beam pockets, ductwork that is touching the foundation walls and the access door. -\

This tape worked awesome and adhered to the masonry blocks nicely. Very sicky! This is a must have if you are placing the plastic by yourself. I was able to put one end of the vapor barrier up and the tape held it in place, then crawled to the other side of the crawlspace, pulled the remaining plastic into place and adhered it to wall flush. It held tight until I was able to secure with permanent pins.

Excellent quality and functionality. Competitively priced as well. However I asked it be shipped US Postal Svc but it came UPS at a stiff rate. Apply this 2 sided tape by hand sticking it without stretching it. Leave the outer backing paper on, then use a hand roller (J bar roller) to firmly press the tape onto the foundation. Roll the tape with the paper backing with hard pressure.. Then peel off the outer paper and place the vinyl fabric onto the exposed tape. Again use the J roller. Firmly roll the vinyl over the tape. Using the roller firmly and twice is a best-practice method. This tape will please you. Cut this tape with a knife. It quickly gums up scissors. Don't let the knife point puncture the vinyl.

This tape works really well when installing an attic tent. It holds the tent in place until I can staple it to the framing. It also air seals the opening as well. Longer than necessary for 1 tent, but we install a couple dozen a year. It works great and no mess.

This tape reminds me of the type of advise used in automotive, specificly to adhere the windshield to the frame. The tape sticks well to concrete but make sure you get it right the fist time as it is hard to remove from the plastic wrap and after pealing it from the concrete it won't stick well the second time. If I could make a recomondation I would suggest a wider backer than the tape membrane to ease the removal as it it very difficult to get an edge started.

I had a really difficult time getting this to stick to the concrete. I brushed and cleaned the wall prior to applying the seam tape, but it did not want to stick. I ended up stapling the vapor barrier to the sill plate until I was able to get the pins installed. So, it appears the the concrete needs to be REALLY clean for this to be effective.

We found there are too many variations in our stone wall for this to work. We instead used more pins at the top and then used adhesive caulking to seal the top. We only used three feet of this and are not sure what we can use this for, now? Any chance for a return/refund? We bought two rolls of this.

I was surprised how well it stuck to the cinder block wall. Our crawl space was quite dusty before the liner was applied. It can be unforgiving if you need to pull the liner off the tape in order to smooth out wrinkles as you are moving along the wall. As indicated in the video only apply a small length of liner to the tape at any one time to minimize wrinkling of the liner.

Rating The too sticky tape!
 
I say too sticky because this stuff is really sticky. If you stick it to the wall and don't start pealing off the top layer, it's a real pain in the neck. Before you stick it to the wall, start the top layer pealing off as well, then make a 'loop' and stick it back on so it's easy to get hold of when you are ready to start hanging your wall liner. Truth be told, it's not too sticky, but when it's stuck to your fingers, you may beg to differ.

This tape was amazing and was easy to apply and held the 12mm encapsulation material with no problem. I did the project when I had time in the schedule and had to leave the job with only the tape holding the barrier for two weeks before I could install the foundation pins and it continued to stick and hold without failure.

This stuff is very sticky. So don't let it stick to itself. But when I installed my vapor barrier, the tape did not stay stuck to the block wall. You'll need to install Crawl Space Foundation pins as you go to keep it from falling. I will probably have use some polyurethane caulk to seal the top edge of my vapor barrier where the seal tape did not seal.

This product works great. Absolutely essential if you are trying to affix the 12 mil barrier to a brick foundation in a space with 16 inch clearance. You have to be a contortionist. This product was strong enough to hold the plastic in place so I could belly crawl down the line. Because I had uneven brick to work with I had to go back through and put a foundation pin every 12 inches. It would not have been possible without this great product.

Found all the products I have used from Crawl Space Repair to be high in quality along with fast shipping and packing. I tackled this job by myself and was still able to accomplish a great job when finished (although a little soar in the joints)and a little more time to finish.....lol. The foundation seal and waterproof seal tapes worked great and had a lot of holding power. I was impressed with the foundation tape as it stuck very well to the cinder blocks after lightly brushing them off. The foundation pins were easy to install and the 1/4 inch holes were surprisingly quick to drill in the cinder blocks. Makes for a neat job and extra holding power for over a longer period of time. The vapor barrier I used was the 12 mm and very strong and was amazingly easy to work with and lay down in sections,even on the walls of the crawl space. Now I have a crawl space that is well lighted and clean with less moisture content. I have even noticed some differences in the temperature of my house. It seems to stay cooler longer in the warmer temperatures,outside, we have been having,which means lower power bills. Been turning the air on in late afternoon and turning it back off in early evening and it stays a comfortable temp inside. We shall see what happens when summer temps come around,but it still should be an improvement.

I'm sealing the crawl space on a new house under construction. I applied the tape and vinyl liner to the foundation walls prior to the wood floor system being installed. I made sure there wasn't any blobs of mortar in the way of the tape. The block was dry so the tape had good bonding strength. The excellent adhesive strength of the tape allowed me to install the tape along the entire wall section (60')and then hang the vinyl prior to drilling for the pins. Two days later I noticed the tape pulling away from the block in some of the corners. Since I had ordered extra foundation pins, I went back and installed pins closer in the corners as well as in between all of the original pins. Therefore, pins are every foot along the walls. I feel confident the vinyl will not come down now.

I found in my damp crawlspace where my home is built on footings so the barrier had to be put directly on the inside of the bricks. The tape didn't stick to the moist brick. I've had to depend on the pins and caulking to seal the barrier to the interior crawlspace wall. It adhered well to the cement blocks though.

WOW! You guys are the greatest. I called several times with several questions before I purchased the 12 Mil GuardianLinerâ„¢. Everyone I spoke to was very knowledgeable about crawl space encapsulation. We searched the web and I found you guys. I called and if you told me once you must have told me 20 times to seal the vents. I could not believe this would work. I did it and ordered the GuardianLinerâ„¢, the Foundation Seal Tape, the Waterproof Seam Tape, the Foundation Pins and a hygrometer. I would never have believed sealing the vents and encapsulating would be the answer to a problem we have had for over 30 years. Had we know this last year or 2 years ago, we could have saved a lot of money on insulation. I will definitely recommend you and your company to everyone I see who says they have a moisture problem in their crawl space. I have another friend whose brother paid around $10,000 to have his crawl space encapsulated on the eastern shore of Maryland. We did it for a fraction of the cost.

I used Foundation Seal Tape to seal the existing vapor barrier in my crawlspace to the concrete side wall. Now I have as close as a person can get to a completely sealed crawlspace floor. In the spring and fall our water table comes up and makes the ground moist. Now I have a complete seal. Product was very easy to install. It stuck well to the concrete wall and the plastic sticks to the tape very very well. I have checked out the stickyness after one month and the tape is doing its job great. No releasing anywhere. In reality, it seems like it has a better grip now than the day I installed it. I can lightly pull on the plastic and the plastic will not come off the tape, and the tape will not come off of the concrete. So, Foundation Seal Tape works as the company says it will.

Rating Good for center block, but not good on red brick
 
This is some really strong tape. If it touches the vapor barrier, it is easier to leave it than to pull it off. The tape works really well on clean center blocks as long as you only attach it to the block and do not pull it off. However if you have red brick, the dust in the brick covers the tape and it looses its adhesiveness. To cut, use heavy duty scissors and a razor to peal the brown paper from the tape. I used the tape and polyurethane caulk. I strongly recommend this product.
