Working on it. My seventh set, and I haven't had a 100% seal yet and this set turned out to be my best. Perfect cosmetically, but still some release film wrinkles in the back, but that also, has not been perfect yet, and is also my best looking part yet. For me, i'm sold. 33% of the price, and performs for me as I'd like.
I think I get more leak from my air fittings than from the tape!

With that tape you should be able to get a 100% seal.

Herman.

So what you're saying is that's a great find and that for us new infusers that are looking for tape that are just curing at room temperature and NOT in an oven we should buy this tape over let's say the gs213 that's been discussed earlier in the thread?

Most butyltapes are very soft, tacky and have a low melting point.

I use them very often, as they are easier to work with than the harder high temp tapes.

I must also say that Airtech has other tapes than GS213 and AT200Y. For long the AT200Y (the yellow tape) has been the workhorse in the lower temperature range, but recently Airtech added some interesting tapes, such as Airseal 2, Airseal 2HT, and Airseal 2ST.

The Airtechonline.com website requires a username and password, but the Airtech.lu site has all datasheets easily accessable.

I really recommend checking the datasheets from time to time, to see what is new.

I did a dry test bag. I got imperceptible leak down over 20 minutes. The bag was still tight after I pull the hose. It's not thick enough though for the stretchlon bag. It pulls across the bridges before the bag can stretch.

Ah, stretchable bag... For stretchbag you should take a harder tape. Also strechtable bags can develop untracable porosity when stretched. Personally I do not like stretchable bags at all, except for some very specific applications.
