Army Rescue Tape: Self-Fusing Repair Tape Fixes Anything

Here’s a neat piece of kit that belongs in every toolkit for emergency repairs of everything from cracked water pipes to damaged automotive hoses. Called Rescue Tape, it is a self-fusing silicone repair tape that is so strong and versatile, it’s used by the armed forces.


Unlike regular heavy duty tapes that use adhesive to bond to a surface, Rescue Tape only bonds to itself – which means no sticky residue. Stretching the tape activates the silicone and when wrapped tightly around itself, creates a bond within 1 minute that’s so strong – you’ll have to cut it off to remove it.

With a 700psi tensile strength (car tires are only 30-40psi) its the perfect tool for many emergency situations and with the ability to insulate 8,000 Volts per layer, you can use it for innumerable DIY jobs around the home or workplace. Rescue Tape has the ability to withstand 500°F of heat too, so your repairs are sure to last a while, temporary or not.


The list of things this Army Rescue Tape is resistant to reads like a pair of Dr Martens soles; unaffected by oils, acids, fuels, solvents, salt water, road salt or even UV rays. This means you can get an air-tight and water-tight seal that will last without needing to clean the surface first, which in itself is a huge plus.

Keep a roll in the car for emergency hose repairs, plus it’s even strong enough to make an emergency fan belt. Around the house you can repair burst pipes, make emergency O-Rings, waterproof electrical connections, wrap metal fittings to prevent corrosion or even wrap your tool handles for a non-slip grip. The possibilities are endless.

Roll on over to either Expert Verdict or who have them for £11.95 and $9.95 respectively and ensure you never have to waste money on emergency call-outs again.

I like to visit your blog a couple times a week for new thoughts. I was wondering if you have any other topics you write about? You’re a very talented writer!

Evan, cheers for your kind words. Technology is my only focus, but as you can see from the categories here, that does encompass a great many topics. Thanks for reading.

Hi Mark, I’ve read a few of your blog posts in the past and I really enjoy it all. I must say this tape would be perfect for me, are there any websites that would ship to the UK?
