Leaky pipework may not seem like a big problem but little by little, money is wasted. It could become worse and turn into a burst pipe at some point. How would that affect your business? If your maintenance crew have a roll or two of Amalgi Extreme self amalgamating tape to hand, the leaking pipework could be repaired at a fraction of the cost required for its replacement. And no down time either!
What is Amalgi Extreme Tape?
It is a high performance commercial grade silicone rubber self sealing tape. Also called fusible tape, self-fusing, self-vulcanising, self amalgamating tape or just silicone tape, this product is amazingly useful.
Made from a specially formulated silicone rubber which sticks or bonds only to itself, Amalgi Extreme Tape has no adhesive and leaves no residue if removed. This incredible silicone rubber tape stretches by up to 300% and will wrap round irregular shapes creating a seal on even the most awkward of leaks. Silicone Amalgi Extreme Tape bonds only to itself and creates a permanent air and liquid tight seal.
APT's silicone rubber tape is also excellent for wrapping cables and wires in order to repair damage until you can get an electrician. It is perfect to reinforce cables on connectors that must be regularly plugged and unplugged.
Designed for both internal and external use, Amalgi Extreme self amalgamating tape is highly UV resistant and weatherproof. Wrapped round external pipework, it gives you maintenance free corrosion protection.
But we are sure that you will find many more uses, for example we have customers who have used it to renew handles on tools!
