This is a high specification self amalgamating tape, but at this ‘offer’ price is a useful addition to any technician/handyman/ radio ham/electrician’s toolkit.
Ideal for use sealing electrical cable/coaxial cable connections antenna joints exterior connectors etc. – it also has a multitude of other uses in the workshop and in and around the house!
This particular tape has a centre line to guide the user re overlap depth. Originally supplied to the electronics industry, due to an over order we can offer it here at this bargain price.
The method of use is to cut off a suitable length and peel back the non stick separating strip, this leaves the soft rubbery tape which is wound (while being stretched to 2/3 its width) around the joint or cable to be sealed, overlapping the tape to the blue line ensures it bonds to itself and provides a completely watertight seal.
