Anti-UV adhesive tape

Recommended Posts

Hi Kevin,

3M make some good outdoor quality tapes. There are various types depending on whether you need stretch, strength or self amalgamating properties. I suggest visiting an electrical wholesaler as they will carry the professional quality products and should be able to advise on which one to use. Be prepared to pay a bit more than your standard insulating tape from the local hardware shop.

40 or more years ago the old Post and Telegraph cable jointers used self amalgamating tape on those new-fangled plastic sheathed telephone cables. It was excellent stuff to have on the boat and totally melded together into a homogenous mass. The modern stuff doesn't seem to do that and in my opinion is nowhere near as good.

Been to coastal sites 3+ years old and it's still had to be cut away. It works well, A few times we did have water make it's way in due to improper application so we added this:




over the top, havent had any issues so far
