" Really excellent tape, the same sort of stuff I used to use in electrical engineering, flexible, sticky and tough. Not like the 'orrible plasticky hard tape you can find at this price. Recommended. "

By darlodean

" I'm a DIY'er so don't care what colour the tape is (seems to be important to the pro's) anyway this tape was sticky and tapey and taped up some wires safely. I didn't die using this so would recommend to other DIY'ers "

Insulation Tape
29 Dec 2010
By DIL124
, LANCASHIRE
" Really there shouldn't be a lot to say about insulation tape but this stuff is rubbish it is like tissue paper, and about as strong. You might think it is cheap but as you use twice as much as normal, and throw away as much as you use so it works out quite expensive.
AVOID IT AND BUY SOME PROPER TAPE !
