Abstract: There are different types of adhesive tapes applied in the building envelopes on the market which demand documentation of the properties of the adhesive tapes. In order to determine whether the adhesive tape will perform for its intended use, standard test methods which consider both the adhesive tape and the surface to which it is applied is important. The durability of the adhesive tapes is evaluated using 2 weeks of accelerated ageing in a climate simulator with four repeated cycles, according to NT Build 495, and 24 weeks of heat aging at 70 C in accordance with EN 1296. The tensile strength and elongation, peel resistance and shear strength of the tape applied to different surfaces are evaluated before, during and after ageing. The durability test results give an overview on the performance of the adhesive tape when used in building envelopes. This study presents adhesive tape durability testing, evaluation and service life estimation methods, which hence form a basis for further improvements of the existing accelerated ageing methods.
