Silicone Stretchtape™

Kirkhill's Reinforced Silicone Stretchtape™ is a custom-manufactured dielectric grade silicone rubber tape. Stretchtape™ is reinforced with sinusoidal glass yarn to control stretch and increase strength. Stretchtape™ also conforms easily to complex shapes and forms a permanent bond within a short period of time at room temperature. This tape provides superior performance in a single wrap that other tapes would require multiple wraps to accomplish.
