We continue to monitor the latest updates and are taking actions to safeguard the health of our employees and preserve our ability to operate through this crisis.

Why Silicone?

Self-fusing silicone tape is the best choice when low profile, flexibility, longevity and ultimate resistances are needed for system protection.

Generic vinyl and duct tapes do not hold up well against ultraviolet rays.
Silicone is naturally resistant to UV exposure and will not fade or breakdown in direct sunlight.

Silicone resists rain, salt, sleet, snow and other harsh weathering effects, protecting systems operation beneath the layer.
Corrosion effects are significantly slowed and can even be monitored with clear silicone tapes.
Silicone can also be buried or used in underground applications.

Silicone withstands from -65°F to 500°F (-54°C to 260°C), making it useful for extreme climates.
Most vinyl, EPDM and duct tapes experience adhesive failure and melt or breakdown at 176°F (80°C).

Silicone has good splash resistance to most chemicals including oil, kerosene, gasoline and other aromatic hydrocarbons.

Our silicone is an excellent insulator with minimum performance of 400 volts per mil (0.001 in thick).
Traditional vinyl electrical tape is only rated to 600 volts per layer.
Our silicone tapes are certified to meet Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 510 requirements.

Minimum 300% stretch. Can be wrapped around irregular shapes to create a lasting seal.
Duct tape does not seal due to it’s stiff composition.

Self-fusing silicone tapes do not have any conventional glues or adhesives.
The material is an open chain polymer that permanently fuses to itself upon contact, creating a singular layer.
This is a significant advantage over vinyl adhesive layers that leave a gummy residue behind after removal.
Silicone can be easily removed with a blade, leaving the substrate undisturbed.

Finished wrap is a low profile alternative to zip ties, providing additional clearance for systems assembly.

Due to it’s numerous resiliences, silicone ages very slow and can be expected to outlast vinyl, duct and butyl tapes.

Oxygen and other gases can permeate through the tape, preventing buildup of harmful gases between layers and providing safer exit.
