What's special about this self-fusing tape?

  • Self-bonding, adhesive-free, low cost insulating tape will save you with in-field operations and post installation maintenance
  • Tensile strength of 600 PSI and highly flexible properties allow this tape to conform to any shape and perform in extreme environments
  • Unlike heat shrink tubing, there is no need to disconnect or cut existing wire bundles; just wrap the tape onto itself and around splits to create a tight seal

Originally created for the military, X-Treme® Tape is a self-fusing wrap made from a special high quality silicone rubber compound.  This self-bonding tape will conform to irregular shapes and provide a non-conductive, water and airtight insulating seal.  Ideal for use in automotive, electrical, MRO, aerospace, plumbing, home, and outdoor applications.

VP-TPE-XR1510B 1 1/2" Self Fusing Silicone Rubber X-treme Tape - BLACK 1.5" 10 ft 0.20 lbs
Qty:  
  • Air and watertight tape seals and protects against leaks and corrosion
  • Dielectric strength of 400 Volts per mil to provide insulation on wiring, tools, and other electrical equipment
  • MIL-I-46852 and ASTM D150 compliant
  • Self bonding tape uses no adhesive so there is no deterioration or breakdown, and no residue is left behind if removed
  • Allows you to repair or insulate anything regardless of shape, diameter, or connector size
  • Resists UV rays and chemicals for use in harsh environments
  • Able to withstand temperatures up to 500°F(260°C) for high temperature applications
  • Tape edges won’t roll or collapse, for a solid and secure seal
  • A must-have for electrical insulation up to 400Volts/Mil
  • Stretches up to 3 times its length, so you know your wrap is air and water tight after curing (fusing)

  • Ideal for use:

Directions for use:

  1. Clean surface to be wrapped, cut off length to be used
  2. Peel back a short length of protective film, keep tape clean and dry
  3. Begin to loop the tape onto itself so it overlaps by at least 50% of its width
  4. Stretch X-Treme Tape® while continuing to wrap object with “half laps”, removing clear film as you go. For greater pressure resistance, use 2 or more tightly wrapped layers.
  5. End of tape at final wrap should be complete positioned onto itself

Note: X-Treme Tape’s bond begins to cure immediately upon contact with itself. Repositioning or removal is not recommended after 2 minutes of wrapping.
X-Treme Tape will form a permanent, cohesive bond within 24 hours at room temperature…faster if heat cured at up to 350°F

Store in a cool dry place in a sealed plastic container.
