3M Linerless Self-Fusing Rubber Electrical Splicing Tape


[Really long product name] story short: "It fuses to itself to form a nearly perfect waterproof bond," wrote Jonathan Foote in MAKE magazine.

He continued, "To use it, you cut a short piece off the roll, stretch to activate it, and tightly wrap your splice. The result is a neatly insulated tube of tough black rubber."


For all-voltage splicing, jacketing and general insulating.


0.75"W x 15-foot-long roll.

I've always known it as self amalgamating tape - and it's dead useful for sealing things that would otherwise be impossible because of awkward shapes like branching pipes and cables etc. Handy to have around - but expensive. Oh, and getting the backing tape off the first 1/16" can be a right sod.
