We are often asked questions about our X-TREME tape these are the most common and the answers.
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 the surface is wet, dirty, or oily. You should avoid getting dirt or oil between the layers, however, as this will interfere with the bonding surface.
.Q: How can I remove X-TREME Tape?
A: X-TREME Tape can be cut with a utility knife or scissors, and will never leave any sticky residue behind like traditional adhesive tapes because there’s no adhesive!
Q: How long will a repair made with X-TREME Tape last?
A: There are no guarantees how long a repair will last. There are many factors which contribute to a proper repair, including but not limited to the surface, the environment, the quantity of tape used, and the amount of tension X-TREME Tape is stretched to. Because conditions and methods of use are beyond the manufacturer’s control, neither manufacturer nor seller will assume any responsibility for the use or misuse of this product. X-TREME Tape is not designed to be a permanent repair; however, many of our customers have reported that they have made long-lasting permanent repairs.
Q: What is the difference between X-TREME Tape and other silicone tapes?
A: X-TREME Tape is the highest quality available on the market today. Only the purest and highest quality ingredients are used. The quality is immediately observable by the amazingly fast fusing time, strength and durability.
