Product Description

F4 Tape is a self-fusing silicone tape designed for military and aviation use. F4 Tape is the new fast-fusing formula that works in minutes or even seconds, compared to the older 24 hour cure time from older technology. Use it as shrink wrap instead of shrink tubing or shrink tape. F4 Tape was named after the F4 Phantom jet - while intended for high-voltage electrical wire wrapping, this F-4 Tape is very versatile and is ideal as an emergency repair tape! This is the highest quality silicone tape available, and NOT the same as Mocap or Tommy Tape. Lab tested at 950 PSI Tensile strength, this product significantly exceeds military specifications and industry standards for aviation tape. Each roll is 1" Wide X .020" Thick (20 mil) X 36 feet in length. Color is Red Oxide (Rusty / burnt orange)

Calling it "tape" may be a bit misleading since there's no sticky side. You can't, for example, use it to hold a piece of paper to a wall.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of uses October 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
I've used this type of tape in different brands for nearly two decades. It works where nothing else will and it doesn't leave a sticky residue when removed. It will hold household water pressure in hoses and pipes if you stretch it the full 3X and apply several layers. It only sticks to itself, so you can't use it to tape a note to the door.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT WORKS! June 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
The tape is great. I've fixed numerous garden hose holes and splices,
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT TAPE October 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
This stuff fuses really fast, almost instantly so be careful not to let it wrinkle or fold on itself, A pretty good value to at 36 FT. Most others are cheaper but only 12 FT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff September 11, 2010
Verified Purchase
This stuff is similar to what I used in the Air Force when working on F-4 Phantoms C/D/E/G models. It seems a little thinner than what I remember, and we used to get it in a small round tin back in the day. This comes in a plastic bag. I've used it on my boat, and works just like I remember. Never use electrical tape when you can use this stuff. The orange has a little higher temp rating, but both black and orange work the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars F4 Tape February 13, 2011
By Dave D.
Verified Purchase
The F4 tape is great! This is my second roll. Great for insulation and holding things together. Also great to use for tool handles and many other uses. I repaired the jumper cables for my 12 volt battery jumper pack as well as the clamps that were missing insulation due to wear and tear. Just remember to pull it tightly when wrapping it around things (the tighter the better) except for small wiring, where you can wrap it around without pulling it too tight. Amazon has a better deal than the miscelleanuous colored tape advertised on tv and the F4 tape is the real thing. Do not accept similar products as substitutes. Once you try this tape, you will very seldom use electrical tape. I have not used electrical tape since using this stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW February 27, 2012
By Rex
Verified Purchase
This is some kind of tape. It has saved me unmeasurable time. It is perfect for wiring changes on my scooter which uses very fine wire. I have used heat shrink tape in the past but this stuff will work circles around the heat shrink.

The shipping was great also.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tape does what it is supposed to do May 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a good product. I used it for an automotive application that called for tape to withstand temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, and it has held up well (I believe it is rated at 500 degrees). This tape was a bit thinner than similar tape I have used before, but it still does the job. It is indeed self-fusing and holds well.
One minor detail: there is a thin blue line running down the center of the tape on the side that would normally be seen, but you can't see this from the photos of the product.
