Just the Job!
4 Apr 2014
By SiBalls
, West Sussex
"I was hesitant reading other reviews but this tape is great.
Salute to you, the person who proposed cutting the tape diagonal to get the skin off.
Used it on an a 10y/o pvc elbow that I managed to crack all the way through, no leaks since!
As for the stickiness, had absolutely no problem getting this to stick to itself when pulled tight."

"This tape is excellent ! Great for sealing pipes, electrical connections, aerial installations, repairs to charging leads. . .etc. .
Everyone should have a roll in their tool box, at the price, it's a no-brainer!!!

ok,but has limitations
23 May 2013
By jobman

"Haven't had any problem with seperating the backing tape, fold the tape over on itself (backing tape on the inside), you can then start seperating the backing tape starting from the 'kink' Once started pealed away fairly easily. - OK with water, but doesn't like fuel or oil"

Backing cover problems
5 Mar 2013
By Petlahowin
, Ringwood, Hants
"This is a good product, but the backing tape is very difficult to remove as it is very thin. I may have had old stock given to me, but both the rolls I have used are in the same condition."

Impractical to use tape
6 May 2012
By kwiggy1
, Oxfordshire
"I have used self emalg tape many times when I was in the forces, and since , but this version is almost impossible to use even inside in the warm let alone outside in the rain and cold , (which is normally when you need it most).
At first it appears that there is no backing tape no matter how closley you look (several people looked)
So you asume there isn't one , in which case it is useless.
Once you sucseed in geting the backing tape off
(tip , make a diagonal cut on the rubber side half way through with a sharp stanley knife to get you started)
Its not that good at self amalagating either.
Useable if no other available in an emergency , but try a different manufacture if possible."

What Happened?
1 Oct 2013
By Hewzee
, London
"I bought this product several months ago and was extremely impressed (would've given 5 stars all the way) and used it for alot of installations. When I was running low I bought some more. Unfortunately the tape I received barely stuck to anything and is of little use for anything. I am now looking for an alternative product..."

Self-amalgamating tape
16 Apr 2012
By AWENG
, Warminster
"I have been trying to source this for a long time now, it seemed to have disappeared.
Imagine my dismay when I found that this tape has got a most infuriating very thin protective film to stop it self-amalgamating whilst in it's roll form which takes ages to remove. It will not self-amalgamate unless this is first removed.
Maybe it's old stock and the film has degraded but I am very disappointed.
It actually does what it is supposed to do once the film is eventually removed.
AWENG"
