F A Q


 

Q: HOW DOES SPITA RESQ-TAPE WORK?
 
A: SPITA ResQ-tape is self-fusing silicone tape that will automatically fuse together when two layers come in contact with each other
(e.g. wrapping it around on object) 

 


Q
: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A PERMANENT SEAL? 


A: The higher  the amount of energy you put in the tape (by stretching the tape or pressing on it) the faster the process of fusing will work.
By stretching the tape at least 300%, it will fuse permanent within
5 seconds at room temperature. 


Q: AT WHICH TEMPERATURE I NEED TO APPLY THE TAPE?

A: SPITA ResQ-tape can be applied at temperatures ranging from
 
-60°C up to  +260°C. The fusing process works slow at low
temperatures and faster with higher temperatures.



Q: IS THERE A SHELF LIFE?

A: When SPITA ResQ-tape is stored in the dark, protected from UV rays and heat sources (once applied it will become UV resistant), shelf life is exeeding at least 5 years.


Q: HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO USE?

A: You always need to apply at least two layers, enabling the tape to fuse onto itself. With a pressure leak you need to start with two layers and with each Bar of pressure an additional layer (with a maximum of 10 layers for 8 Bar of pressure). Make sure that you stretch the tape to the maximum when sealing pressure leaks.


Q: NEED THE SURFACE TO BE CLEAN?

A: SPITA ResQ-tape can be applied on wet  and dirty surfaces.
There is no need for cleaning.


Q: ANY EXTRA CARE WITH PRESSURE LEAKS?

A: If possible turn off the pressure on the hose before applying the tape (you don't need to clean or dry the surface). When pressure can't be turned off, start applying the tape 5 centimeters before the leak and make sure that the tape is maximum stretched when applied. Continue wrapping the tape (stretches to maximum) with 2/3 overlap until 5 centimeters after the leak and continue wrapping backwards and forwards until you have the sufficient number of layers.


Q: WHICH SIDE OF THE TAPE 
DO I USE?


A: After you have removed the protective layer you can use
SPITA ResQ-tape on both sides.


Q: WILL SPITA RESQ-TAPE COME OF AFTER SOMETIME?

A: If you have followed the instructions during applying the tape,
SPITA ResQ-tape will create a permanent seal and can stay on forever!


Q: CAN I REMOVE SPITA RESQ-TAPE?

A: You can remove SPITA ResQ-tape by cutting the tape.
You can peal it off, it will leave no residue!


Q: WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT SPITA RESQ-TAPE?

A: SPITA ResQ-tape is made of pure silicone of high quality. It only contains some pigment to create the colour. Therefore it seals very fast (also under water), has the highest specifications and will last the longest. As it contains no lubricants or adhesives it is absolutely safe as insulation tape and resists all fuels, acids and (road) salts.
