This jointing tape is essential in effectively and properly joining two edges of barrier together.


Availability: In Stock

This jointing tape (also known as Gorilla Tape) is essential in effectively and properly joining two edges of barrier together. If not used, there is a high risk of tree roots passing through the gap, even if it is overlapped, and causing unwanted damage to services, pavement and infrastructure. The holding power of the adhesive is not affected by water, and will fasten the two ends of barrier together for the life of the barrier itself. Installation instructions are available to installers, showing how to correctly install and join the root barrier. Roll size 73mm x 27m.

Directions: Use like any other tape. Tear Gorilla Tape by hand or cut to size with a knife or scissors. It is important to clean the surface and brush off any loose particles and dirt before applying Gorilla Tape. Apply the tape carefully, smoothing out any pockets or rolls. That’s it. Enjoy the strength and durability of Gorilla Tape! To retain adhesive quality, store Gorilla Tape in a cool, dry place. Keep out of direct sunlight. Try storing the tape vertically (rather than laying flat), on a hook or on wax paper. If you have multiple rolls, keep your excess supply wrapped until they’re needed. Gorilla Tape works best at temperatures above 32°F (0°C). For best results, always apply the tape at room temperature. If Gorilla Tape freezes, it will work just fine once it returns to room temperature. Gorilla Tape can be removed, but with some difficulty and it may leave some residue. To remove any excess residue, we recommend using the tape itself as a blotter.
