The World’s #1 Self-Fusing Silicone Rescue Tape
You can instantly repair leaks on plumbing and hoses, make underwater repairs, use it on electrical wiring or as shrink-wrap, seal and protect hydraulic fittings or other exposed metal connections, make an emergency fan belt, o-ring gasket and so much more!
Millions of rolls of Rescue Tape have now been used for emergency and roadside repairs, household and plumbing repairs, electrical insulation, boating applications, home & garden, and so much more! The uses are only limited by your imagination!
Silicone Rescue Tape Instructions
Rescue Tape is the highest-quality, strongest & fastest-fusing silicone tape available. It’s a breeze to use, here are our silicone tape instructions to help you get started.
Wrap Rescue Tape around project by stretching and overlapping onto itself. Stretch at least double to ensure a good bond; for high pressure leaks stretch to maximum amount. The tighter Rescue Tape is wrapped, the quicker and stronger the bond.
Continue wrapping Rescue Tape around project by overlapping 50% onto itself so that ½ the width is covered with the next wrap. The first and last wrap should completely overlap onto the previous wrap for a complete bond. Additional layers may be necessary; same process should be used over previous layers. Rescue Tape works on either side.
Repositioning Rescue Tape is only appropriate in the first few seconds after wrapping. Attempting to reposition Rescue Tape after 1 minute or longer is not recommended. Rescue Tape is not reusable; however, additional Rescue Tape can be applied over project at any time in the future.
