SELECTA has released X-Treme Tape - a quick fix emergency repair tape. Originally developed for the US military, it is a high quality tape made from a special silicone compound that adheres only to itself when wrapped under tension.
Once wrapped around an object, it forms an air and water tight seal. The tape remains flexible down to -54°C and can tolerate temperatures to 260°C without melting.
It has a tensile strength of 600psi, conforms to irregular shapes and stretches to three times its length for a seal that resists vibration, moisture penetration and shock.
The tape can be repositioned within two minutes of wrapping and will start to bond immediately upon application. A more permanent bond will be formed after 24 hours at room temperature.
Uses include automotive exhaust tape wrap, emergency radiator hose repair, garden hose repair, plumbing repair, tool grips, whipping ends of rope, repair power and hand tool handles, seal and wrap leaking connections on tractors and sprayers and to protect against corrosion.
