    Has anybody tried Self bonding silicone tape? So far I have about 100 shots and it hasn’t acted up. The tape has no adhesive and self bonds when it touches it’s self. I just cut a thin strip with my rotary cutter. I haven’t tried it for the pouch but might test it also.

      Nope. I wouldn't trust it myself.

      What kind of tape does Bill Hays use?

      The self bonding one I have is made for air and water tight seal and rated -60•F to 500•F. You can really pull and stretch it to wrap it very tight around the fork...I shot another 200 with TBG and it’s still good.

      I'm pessimistic, that's all.

      I still would be tying it, or wrap and tuck. Murphy will visit you if your not careful....

      This stuff can’t be tied or tucked because it’s self fusion, the instant it comes in contact to itself it bonds and can’t be undone. This is why there’s a plastic wrap between layers. You can manipulate it easily because there’s no adhesive. I’ll report back if Murphy smacks me in the face ;)

      Good Luck! Make sure you have safety glasses on. Does it get hot when it comes in contact with its self? Kinda a weird question.

      No heat, it’s not sticky and will not bond on anything other then itself. You can really stretch it...Band attachment feels very solid and secure but time will tell.

      Did no one notice the most important part in the ad? It has a 700psi rating!!!! Basicaly an average car tyre has around 32psi in it, a champagne cork blows off at around 100 psi so if this stuff can repair a hose or pipe and is rated up too 700psi!!!! Wow man, strong stuff and a great find in my eyes, the only think I'd be aware of is that it has a 300% stretch so when using it I'd be sure to give it a good stretch when binding it on, I think this stuff would be great for pouch tying.

      I think this the same as "centerline tape" used by the military? Generally that tape has a line printed down the center to designate how much to overlap when going around pipes for Max strength.

      IMG_20200921_185953.jpg so I found a similar stuff while doing an electrical project. I tried it for band wrap protection and it seems to work very well. Strong and looks good too.
