Single Sided Thermal Break Tape

ECHOtape’s Thermal Break Tape is designed for construction professionals who want to reduce thermal bridging on outer and inner framing in metal buildings.  Used primarily in the installation of metal building panels and prefabricated wall panels, this tape is applied over the top of purlins or on girt flanges to act as a barrier or flash break between the outer shell and inner framing. This tape adheres strongly to both smooth and rough surfaces including corrugated metal. The paper release liner protects the adhesive from contaminants when the tape needs to be cut to specific lengths for use in tight spaces ensuring a strong bond once applied.


  • Use to create a vapor seal where large gaps occur
  • Use to make a lap joint seal on corrugated metal building panels or prefabricated wall panels
  • Use to create a flash break on metal building purlin and girt flanges
