HARTFORD, Conn. — Permatex has introduced Permatex Self-fusing Silicone Tape (P/N 82112) for use in a wide variety of automotive and general repair applications. This fast-acting tape bonds to itself and instantly creates an airtight, waterproof seal, which can be used for quick and secure repairs on hoses, pipes, cables, wiring, electrical connections and more, according to Permatex.
Designed to create an extremely tight seal, Permatex Self-fusing Silicone Tape is ideal for application areas that may become wet or are in contact with running water. In addition to waterproofing, the tape has a tensile strength of 700 psi for use on pressurized hoses, is heat resistant to 400 degrees F, insulates electric wires up to 400V, and withstands salt, acids and solvents such as gasoline.
Permatex Self-fusing Silicone Tape can be used in place of duct and electrical tape. It is an ideal solution for quick home repairs on applications such as connector hoses, electrical connections, emergency fuel or water leaks, video and audio cables, piping and wiring insulation. It can also be used to wrap tool handles for a better grip, the company adds.
A single package contains one roll of black tape measuring 1 inch x 10 feet (2.54cm x 3.048m).
