Siga Wigluv vs 3M 8067 Flashing Tape
I’d like to tape the joint between the wood window bucks and the EPS insulation in my ICF wall, and want to decide on a tape.
I of course have read Martin’s tape tests and it seems like Siga’s Wigluv tape comes out on top for most tests, but 3M’s 8067 Flashing Tape also rates very highly.
Of course some may say, just buy the best, but I’m trying to determine how different they are as Wigluv is about 2x as expensive as 3M 8067, and how much better is it really?
Does anyone who’s used both tapes have anything to share? I’d especially be interested in hearing how they adhere to EPS, as that was not focused on for any test that I’ve read about.
I will note that I have not tried Siga’s tape, but I did attach some 3M 8067 on to a piece of EPS left over from the ICF. I was able to peel it off, however, it took a fair effort and a number of styrofoam beads were attached to the tape. This would seem to indicate that the tape bonded pretty well to the EPS? I have never done a tape test before so I’m not sure what to expect?
