Rescue Tape

Have any of you guys used this stuff? I saw it on one of the boating shows on ESPN and thought that this is a must have for the tool bag. It is self fusing and can be used on hoses, and electrical. They say it'll seal a busted radiator hose and can withstand temps up to 500 deg and pressures up to 950 PSI.

Yes, it's my mid-life crisis.

I have seen this, or a similar product in the Princess Auto catalogue, but have never used it yet. It looks like a very useful item to keep in the toolbox while traveling on the road.

I have a place next to my duct tape and bailing wire for it.
Sound like a good emergency helper.

I have used a simular item in the past , but the stuff was made from rubber, not silicone.

It worked the exact same way however, as it had no adhesive, but would fuse to itself. I used the stuff for electrical repairs, and to even wrap the handlebars on my bicycle. The rubber made a great non slip grip.

This stuff looks like an improvmement of the same stuff, and I too will pick up some to add to my tool box.

It does temporarily fix leaking radiator hoses (that is, the tape can stand the heat). It rescued one guy's bike on a ride, until we got to town where he replaced the hose.

Might be worth having.

The journey is the destination.
