Silicone Fusion Tape

General Information

Silicone fusion tape is a special formulation of high-technology polysiloxanes that meets A-A-59163 and Mil-I-46852 specifications. This tape is non-flammable, self-extinguishing and binds only to itself without any adhesive. Forms an excellent seal that is weather/water/air-tight when wrapped around electrical connections and connectors, cable and wiring splices, hydraulic hose protection sleeves, duct joints and other electro-mechanical devices. Also used for medical purposes - such as wrapping field splints and wounds as the tape applies tension/pressure to wound dressings and pads without sticking to flesh and hair.

The special silicone formulation of this tape self-fuses (self-amalgamating) when stretched and over-wrapped. Completely flexible at cold temperatures and can be used to +500ºF / +260ºC continuous exposure. Does not support combustion and resists heat, flame, welding splatter, molten metals, solder drips, slag, sparks, Ozone, UV light and contamination.

Can be wrapped over oily or wet surfaces and is an excellent emergency repair tape for hoses and pipes. Used extensively in aviation, marine and industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul operations.

Easy & Clean to Use Silicone tape incorporates a blue marking stripe along its center, making it easy to over-wrap at 50% when taping long lengths. The triangular profile of the tape (thickest in the centre and reducing thickness towards each edge) ensures a smooth finish to the installation with minimum ridging. Easy to remove with a sharp blade while curing or when completely cured and does not leave a gummy or sticky residue the way pressure sensitive adhesive tapes such as standard vinyl electrical tapes or duct tapes do.

How to Use & Install Tape Lift off the end of the tape from its backing film and then hold the free end onto what the tape is being installed on. With your other hand which is holding the remainder of the tape roll, moderately pull or stretch the tape while over-lapping the wrap. The stretching action activates the special formulation of silicone rubber with the result of the tape self-binding / self-fusing to itself. Many Practical Uses Silicone tape makes for easy hose and cable bundling, replacing tie-wraps. Excellent for fixing leaks in piping and hoses. Makes a good emergency fan belt. Provides excellent weather protection for outdoor electrical and electronic connections. Great as a first-aid tape to hold splints & bandages in place.
