When stretched and wrapped under tension, Silicone Rescue Tape instantly begins curing into one piece of silicone, creating an air-and-water-tight seal resistant to salt water, fuel, oil, acids, solvents and UV rays.

Unlike self-amalgamating tapes or other rubber and silicone products, Rescue Tape fuses faster and recently tested at 950 PSI breaking strength, is the strongest silicone repair tape on the market. Resistant up to 8,000 volts per layer, Rescue Tape also repairs critical electronics such as VHF radios, fish finders and navigation equipment, onboard electrical wiring, waterproofs electrical connections and protects battery cables and terminals. Wrap it around fishing rod handles for a nice grip that is non-slip, even when wet.

With the unique Clear Silicone Rescue Tape, anglers can wrap electrical connections and waterproof them, while still being able to visually inspect the connection to assure there is no corrosion or damage, view the color and the print on the wiring. This is especially beneficial for coax cables for VHF antennae, or installation of marine electronics.

Rescue Tape takes just minutes or even seconds to permanently fuse together and never comes unraveled. Easily removed with a knife or scissors, Rescue Tape never gets gummy or sticky like duct tape or electrical tape and leaves no residue. Resists temperatures up to 500 F (260 C) and down to -74 F (-65 C). Available in eight colors and various sizes for a variety of onboard repair applications.

A DVD marketing program is available to help retailers explain the features, benefits and numerous uses of silicone Rescue Tape and is viewable online at
