Excellent tape

Comments about Poly Tape (Indoor/Outdoor Use):

I wish I would have known about this tape years ago! It has excellent adhesion and is great for applying to pipe insulation, and many other assorted uses where a dark color waterproof tape is needed.

    Q:

    I plan to run a 50' 1/2" PEX line across my roof to a Solar Collector for Solar Hot Water. Could I use your foam pipe insulation and then cover it with Poly Tape to make it UV resistant?

      A:

      I'm not sure about the tape, I'd guess the poly tape would start to come
      apart pretty quickly and then the crows would start picking at the foam. I
      believe the rubitex holds up better against the UV, but you'll want to
      check that.
      On another note. Pex and even Pex-Al-Pex aren't rated for the high water
      temperatures any sort of glazed solar collector is going to generate, flat
      plate or evacuated tube. It may work for awhile, but eventually you'll
      have the pex blow out right at the connections to the collector. Some
      people try to get away with a few feet of copper right at the connections,
      but I generally think it's a bad idea. When your collector flashes to
      steam for whatever reason that steam expands and takes up a lot of volume
      and will transfer all of that heat to the pex.
      You really should use copper or there is flexible stainless steel lines
      that are available. The flexible stainless steel is essentially natural
      gas flex pipe, but sometimes a bit different steel.

      A:

      I used the foam insulation for the straight runs of the A/C piping.
      The tape is used at the joints of the foam and at the irregular
      piping surfaces – valving. Taping the entire run after
      covering in foam was not done but probably would not hurt as
      long as one did not crush the foam insulation. The foam has built
      in adhesive at its mating edge.

    Q:

    Recently had a new unit compressor/condensor installed. After installation I noticed I could see the copper tubing underneath some old foam "pipe" at the connection point. I called the installer and asked that he address this condition using areosol foam. Will this foam do the same as using poly tape and/or your "pipe"? FYI-saw a pic/description of using your products for this reason- fixing rotting A/C insulation in Familyhandyman, 10/2010 issue while waiting in a dr's office. I thought I had lost it and just found it after the installation.
    Maybe we could have saved a little if I put the paper away in a convenient location. Thanks for your reply. Margaret

      The foam, the pipe insulation, and this Poly Tape will all so the same thing. The tape can be used outdoors in temperatures down to -35 °F. It is waterproof and UV resistant.

    Q:

    Can this tape be used to protect PEX exposed to sunlight? I want to use PEX for an irrigation system and will have small lengths exposed that attached to the valve system to sunlight. I read somewhere to be careful about the type of adhesive that one can attach to PEX, as some of it will eat at the PEX tubing.

      A:

      This tape is not designed for direct contact with PEX. We would recommend that you sleeve the exposed PEX with PVC.
