Air vent tape is Aluminum foil backing, coating different adhesives. Vent tape used to wrapping and sealing the gap of air ducts and vents. The air ducts are the whole system of metal ducts. The air ducts are conduits or passages used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to delivery and remove air. The vent are the connect point of air ducts.

Vent tape also named Ventilation tape. They are same adhesive tapes of ventilation duct tape and air duct tape.

3M named their vent tape as Venture Tape. It is also Aluminum foil adhesive tape designed for sealing insulation over ductwork in harsh environments. The material is weatherproof, weather resistant and tough as metal but easier to install.

Ventilation duct tape is widely used as Dryer vent tape, Range hood tape, Vent sealing tape, Air ventilation tape, vent sealing HVAC tape. Ventilation duct tape is used to seal and seam each of the components of a vent ducts system together, including the air handler, connections, rigid and flex duct, sheet metal, and other materials.

The ventilation ducts system’s ability to do its job in trapping contaminants is dependent on it being a closed system – meaning that no air can escape through any ducts, seams, or connections. This is what we’re talking about when we mention Full System Closure. This is the first goal for vent tapes when installing or doing maintenance on an HVAC system, and the tape they use to do the job can make the difference between success and failure.

If the vent tape is not properly applied, or if the wrong type of tape was used for the application, it can lead to tape failure – when the tape flags, falls, or fails to adhere properly to the application surface. Vent tape failure causes air leaks in the system where contaminants that have been removed from the air are able to escape back into the indoor environment.
