Not only is this self-fusing silicone repair tape a solution to stopping leaks but it also has many uses in and outside the home that you may never have thought about. Silicone Rescue Tape can be used for 1,000’s of applications. From emergency repairs to electrical wiring and waterproofing.
A quick description: Rescue Tape is silicone and sticks to itself – well, actually, it fuses to itself – when wrapped around an object. The tighter you pull it, the better the seal. It’s great on hoses and plumbing and unlike electrical tape, it won’t get gummy, and it won’t dry out like duct tape can – even in the sun.
This waterproof repair tape seals live leaks on pipes made from copper, PVC plastic, steel, malleable iron, and many other materials. Ideal for fixing leaks in applications ranging from small domestic plumbing problems through to large scale industrial pipe repairs, it avoids costly and disruptive shutdowns of systems. The versatility of the product makes it suitable for wrapping hoses, and other types of pipes, and can also be used as an electrical tape with insulation protection up to 8,000 volts.
It is easy to use and, depending on the size and pressure of the pipe, repairs can be carried out in under 15 minutes. The tape stretches by three times its length and, once applied, it fuses to form a solid rubber band which exerts maximum pressure over the hole or crack in the pipe. Using multiple tapes creates a repair which is pressure resistant up to 8 bar and is temperature resistant up to 260°C. You wrap it around an item, and overlap it by 50 per cent, pulling tight – stretching it to at least double the length – and going 3 to 5in. on both sides of the leak (not necessary for things like rigging, chain marking, line whipping and so on where there’s no leak). That means for a 1″ split in a hose, the total repair is going to be 7 to 11in. long! The tighter it’s wrapped, the faster and stronger it will fuse. For high pressure leaks, you may need to put a second layer on. But the result will be water-, fuel- and air-tight. Consider it permanent, too – if you need to remove it, you’ll have to cut it off.
The tape has no adhesive so there is no sticky residue like regular electrical insulation tape, so you can’t accidentally stick it to things you don’t want it to stick to, which also means items can be repositioned easily to get the perfect bond, and the uses are only limited by your imagination.
