X-TREME TAPE

X-TREME TAPE

We are often asked questions about our X-TREME tape these are the most common and the answers. Q: How does X-TREME Tape work? A: X-TREME Tape is a self-fusing tape. Ingredients in the silicone cause it to permanently bond to itself when stretched or forced together. Q: How long does it take X-TREME Tape to fuse together? A: The tighter you stretch X-TREME Tape, the quicker it bonds. In most cases, X-TREME Tape bonds in just seconds and takes just a minute or two to become permanent.. Q: What is the shelf life? How do I store X-TREME Tape? A: For the longest shelf life, it should be kept at room temperature and away from direct light or heat. However, these factors only slightly alter the shelf life. Even when stored improperly, X-TREME Tape should last for many years. Q: How much X-TREME Tape should I use? A: When overlapping X-TREME Tape by one-half as directed, you will automatically be left with a “double wrap.” This is sufficient for most weatherproofing applications such as electrical wiring. However, when sealing leaks, the more you use, the stronger the seal will be. Typically 3 to 5 layers thick and 3 to 5 inches to both sides of a damaged hose should repair most leaks. Additional layers may be necessary. Q: Does the surface of my project have to be clean? A: No. X-TREME Tape does not stick to the surface of a project, and therefore it does not matter whether the surface is clean or dirty. As long as you can overlap X-TREME Tape onto itself, it will work, even if...

Cold weather alert service

In the UK there are, on average, 27,000 extra deaths in winter compared to other months of the year – 80% are thought to be due to the cold weather. The cold temperatures can cause physiological effects such as thicker blood, increase in blood pressure and tightening of the airways – making people who already have chronic conditions even more vulnerable. There is a link between the onset of cold weather and deaths from both heart attacks and respiratory illnesses. Older people are particularly at risk as they do not feel the cold until their body temperature falls. The graph below highlights the importance of the service in this country. We have very poor excess winter mortality rates compared to other countries in Europe. Especially when you consider that Finland has a considerably colder climate than our own. The aim of the service is to reduce these figures by helping health care organisations to prepare for spells of prolonged cold weather. Our warning will allow you to take the necessary actions to help you and your patients reduce the risks of cold weather and the effects it can have on the more vulnerable.   We work with the Department of Health, to provide a Cold Weather Alert Service. This operates, in England, from 1 November to 31 March every year. Met Office alerts are sent to NHS Trusts in England, and AgeUK, to ensure that staff and resources are fully prepared for any cold weather periods and those who are more vulnerable to cold weather conditions are aware and prepared. The alert is also displayed on our website and across other...

Advice for thawing or leaking pipes

Advice for thawing or leaking pipes When temperatures rise after a cold snap you need to act quickly to protect your water pipes and deal with any bursts. Damage to pipes occurs when they become frozen, but you’re only going to notice when the water in the pipe thaws. So, if a pipe is frozen isolate the affected area by closing your stop tap. Turn off your water supply Turn off the main stop tap. You should find this under the kitchen sink or where the pipe enters your home such as in your garage or cellar. If you have a cold water tank, turn off the stopcock (this is usually found in the attic or loft). If you spot a leak having isolated the affected pipe by closing the stop tap, then call a plumber. If you want to find an approved plumber, use the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering’s...
