Peeling of Tape Skin
12 Jul 2014
By
, Hull
"A very big thank you to those previous reviews and tips about peeling back the skin before application. Most helpful. I peeled it back prior to use and then kept on stripping it back before cutting the tape.
Very difficult to get it started. I used a cerrated knife on the end and kept scraping it back till I got some purchase on the skin to be able to start peeling it back. It is not the easiest of tasks but well worth taking the time to do. What ever you do, do not let the skin break off, rather keep peeling it back as you go along.

Excellent

"I use this tape in a multitude of ways and love the way it seals on it's self.
The only warning would be not to cut the tape & the backing at the same time, trying to separate it again afterward is a Mare!!!!"

Just the Job!
4 Apr 2014
By
, 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!!!

"I find a lot of uses for this tape but the main benefit is on my boat where I use it to make a waterproof joint especially in the electrics, saving a fortune on specialist waterproof plugs and sockets."

self-amalgamating tape
20 Jun 2014
By
, Marlborough
"It struggles to do the job, as you need to stretch this type of tape out, but it kept snapping when we did.
Having said that, when we cut down the stretch, it did as good a job as any.
It is purely a stop gap, when you cannot access the parts you need for a proper job.

Self amalgamating tape

By
, Cornwall
"This tape works great once you've figured out how to get the backing off. Easier to do before while still attached to the roll and as others suggest, bend back on itself to create a break in the seal."

ok,but has limitations
23 May 2013
By
, midlands
"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
, 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
, 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."

Won't buy again
20 Jul 2014
By
, Staffordshire
"I had a roll of this tape a while ago but it ran out. The new tape is much, much thicker, doesn't stretch anywhere near as much and doesn't bond to itseff anywhere near as easily. I've used it on a phone charger which the old tape was great for and this was awful. I'll not buy this again"
