RESCUE TAPE - ALL PURPOSE REPAIR TAPE
The ultimate self-fusing repair tape.
The award winning RESCUE TAPE, first used by the US military, is the most versatile and easy to use emergency and all-purpose repair product available.
RESCUE TAPE is also the strongest, fastest curing silicone tape on the market and can resist high temperatures, high pressure, fuels, oils, acids, solvents, salt water, road salt and UV rays to form a waterproof and airtight permanent seal.
Furthermore, its self-fusing technology allows it to cleverly stick to itself meaning it does not have any adhesive coating and has the added advantage of never getting gummy or tacky.
So keep a roll of RESCUE TAPE in all cars, boats and tool boxes and never worry about being caught in a 'sticky situation' again.
Package: Approx. 2.5cm x 36cm x 0.5cm
Most Suited For:
- Emergency hose repair.
- Sealing leaky hoses, pipes, tubing and fittings.
- Electrical insulation.
- Wrapping wiring harnesses and custom split-looming.
- Wrapping hydraulic fittings and other exposed metal connections to help prevent corrosion.
- Sealing connections and fittings.
- Rigging Applications.
- Whipping rope ends.
- Marking lines and chain.
- Using as an emergency fan belt or O-ring.
- Wrapping tools and handles for a great non-slip grip.
- And much much more....
Not Suited For:
- Permanent repairs
- Wrap RESCUETAPE around project by stretching and overlapping onto itself. Stretch to at least double original length to ensure good bond.
- Continue wrapping tape around the project. The first and last wrap should completely overlap onto the previous wrap for a complete bond.
- Repositioning of the RESCUETAPE can only be done in the first few seconds after wrapping.
- Additional RESCUETAPE can be applied over project at any time in the future.
- It can be cut with a utility knife or scissors.

How does RESCUE TAPE work?
RESCUE TAPE is a self-fusing tape. Ingredients in the silicone cause it to permanently bond to itself when stretched or forced together.
How long does it take RESCUE TAPE to fuse together?
The tighter you stretch RESCUE TAPE, the quicker it bonds. In most cases, RESCUE TAPE bonds in just seconds and simply takes a minute or two to become permanent. Because of its high quality control and superior ingredients, RESCUE TAPE is the fastest bonding self-fusing silicone on the market today.
What is the difference between RESCUE TAPE and other silicone tapes?
RESCUE TAPE is the highest quality available. Only the purest and highest quality ingredients are used. The quality is immediately observable by the amazingly fast fusing time, strength and durability. RESCUE TAPE significantly exceeds the military specification set forth for silicone tape. No other tape on the market can fuse as quickly, and endure as much as RESCUE TAPE.
What is the shelf life? How do I store RESCUE TAPE?
For the longest shelf life, it should be kept at room temperature and away from direct light or heat. However, these factors only slightly alter the shelf life. Even when stored improperly, RESCUE TAPE should last for many years. In fact, customers have reported that RESCUE TAPE kept for decades will still work extremely well.
How much RESCUE TAPE should I use?
When overlapping RESCUE TAPE by one-half as directed, you will automatically be left with a 'double wrap'. This is sufficient for most weatherproofing applications such as electrical wiring. However, when sealing leaks, the more you use, the stronger the seal will be. Typically 3 - 5 layers thick and 3 to 5 inches to both sides of a damaged hose should repair most leaks. Additional layers may be necessary.
Does the surface that the RESCUE TAPE is being applied to need to be clean?
No. Since RESCUE TAPE does not stick to the surface of a project it does not matter whether the surface is clean or dirty, wet or dry. However, you should avoid getting oil and dirt between the layers as this will interfere with the bonding surface.
Can I apply RESCUE TAPE under water?
Yes you can – not only can it be applied underwater it is also waterproof.
Which side of the tape should I use?
RESCUETAPE works on either side.
Can I re-use RESCUE TAPE?
Unfortunately, RESCUE TAPE is not re-usable.
Will RESCUE TAPE ever become unravelled?
As long as you have stretched RESCUETAPE and followed the directions properly, RESUE TAPE will permanently bond to itself and never come unravelled at the bond.
How can I remove RESCUE TAPE?
RESCUE TAPE can be cut with a utility knife or scissors, and will never leave any sticky residue behind like traditional adhesive tapes because there's no adhesive!
How long will a repair made with RESCUE TAPE last?
There are no guarantees how long a repair will last. There are many factors which contribute to a proper repair, including but not limited to the surface, the environment, the quantity of tape used, and the amount of tension RESCUE TAPE is stretched to. Because conditions and methods of use are beyond the manufacturer's control, neither manufacturer nor seller will assume any responsibility for the use or misuse of this product. RESCUE TAPE is not designed to be a permanent repair, however, many of our customers have reported that they have made long-lasting permanent repairs with this item.
