Sealing Light Tape® if Cut

It is important that Light Tape® always is completely sealed. Our barrier encapsulation process protects the lamp against moisture and also acts as an insulator. If our factory barrier lamination is cut, it is important to reseal the lamp with our Edge Guard™ fluoropolymer barrier sealant tape. For outdoor installations, it is important that both ends of Light Tape® are factory sealed or tape is sealed per outdoor connection methods.

 

Please follow the below step-by-step instructions to ensure that Light Tape® is cut and sealed properly.

  • Apply Edge Guard™ sealant tape along cut edge and fold over cut edge. For outdoor installations, please refer to our outdoor procedure for proper connection method.

  • Fold Edge Guard™ over to form a seal. Trim excess even with factory lamination with scissors

  • Apply second layer of Edge Guard sealant tape and wrap around the first sealing layer leaving 1/4" (6.25 mm) excess. Trim the newly sealed end with scissors. Leave 1/4" (6.25 mm) seal at end to prevent moisture from penetrating the lamp.

  • Trim the newly sealed end with scissors. Leave 1/4" seal at end to prevent moisture from penetrating the lamp.
