What you can do is use it to wrap something and create a surprisingly strong, leak-proof cover. To make it work as advertized you need to wrap the... (ok) tape around what you are trying to cover making sure each time around you are overlapping the previous and that you are stretching it to at least twice it's length. The overlapping is to get a complete cover and the stretching is what makes layers stick together.
Do those two things and you will be amazed at how well this... strip of self-adhesive silicon material does at sealing leaks.
I also find it handy to use as cable wraps. A 1/4" wide strip does a great job of keeping wire bundles up to 3/4" thick neat and tidy. And it looks a lot better than Velcro Reusable Self-Gripping Cable Ties, 0.5 Inches x 8 Inches Long, Black, 100 Ties per Pack (91140) or Cables to Go 43036 Cable Ties 4-inch - 100 Pack (Black) on small bundles of wire. BTW, if you use this stuff just for that there's enough to wrap over 1700 cable bundles.
Please feel free to let Amazon and me know whether this was helpful to you or not, since it helps me improve my reviews.
My first roll many years ago was much thicker. But the 20 mil thickness seems to be the standard anymore and I haven't seen thicker silicone tape for years. F4 tape from Amazon is a good buy if you get enough stuff to get free shipping. Most brands come in much smaller rolls. I had no problem getting free shipping as I bought four rolls, one each for the car, truck, boat and house. It seems to be a little easier to start as it initially sticks to itself better, and I trust the quality of anything that meets Mil Specs. Brands I know I've used are X-Treme and Nashua plus several whose brands I can't recall. The F4 seems to grab a little better initially, but they have all served their purpose.
The blue stripe down the middle of the tape is handy for getting a sufficient and even overlap. I also often cut it in half and it makes a good guide. The " Triangular Guideline style tape designed for aviation use" statement in the Technical Details is misleading IMO. F4 makes a triangular silicone tape for aviation use, but this isn't it. Triangular aviation tape is thicker in the middle to give a flat finished product. The statement refers only to the blue line which triangular tape requires.
and a threaded 1 inch galvanized pipe to PVC connection.
You do have to stretch it tight; and put enough layers to prvide mechical strength at the pressure point-2 wasn't enough, 5 layers worked every time.
If your garden hose has a slick surface, it helps to take the gloss off with a fine grit sandpaper.
The shipping was great also.
