G-QRP Reflector - 18 August 2007
If any of you are thinking about getting some liquid tape off Richard.... Do so!! I can only say 'it's superb!'...
FAST AND PERMANENT REPAIRS ON WIRES AND CONNECTIONS AND MORE...!
Liquid Electrical Tape is an air-dried, synthetic rubber coating that can be brushed on and exhibits excellent moisture, acid, alkaline, abrasion, and dielectric resistance.
Offers far more efficient sealing than sticky cable seals and tape. Perfect for quick access and portability! Great for sealing all antenna connections. The coating is flexible making it ideal for use on portable antenna connections. Tests we have done show that the product, unlike many other sealants, does not affect the Q of toroids used at HF - it has good dielectric properties and low losses.
Liquid Electrical Tape remains flexible even under extreme conditions and won't crack, harden, or peel.
Electrically insulates to over 1380volts/ml.
Liquid Electrical Tape is excellent for use in a variety of applications including electrical connections and components for boats, trailers, cars and lorries, timers, outdoor wiring, instruments, computers, circuit boards, switches, radio antennas, and many more. Easily removed from non-porous surfaces.
Supplied in a 4 fl.oz (118ml) container, with applicator brush mounted in the lid. Colour - Black. One can contains enough Liquid Tape for dozens of connections.
Use on Aerials
Have you ever felt that your aerial system is not performing quite as well as it used to? Maybe the beacons are just a little weaker or the DX is that much more difficult to work? One common reason for such observations is getting water inside your feeder cable. Rainwater will leak in wherever it can and few sealing methods offer good long-term protection. The design of coaxial cable is such that it draws water in by capillary action. The water can then corrode the wires inside the coax, it also degrades the dielectric performance - increasing losses - sometimes dramatically. Meanwhile back in the shack often all appears well. Increased cable losses make the SWR of aerials look better, but your power is not being radiated, it's heating up the inside of your damp cable. As often as not, water ingress goes un-noticed until water drips out of the cable inside your shack. In the meantime you have been using a radio system that has been below par for months or even years.
Liquid Tape is the answer! This product is easily painted onto all types of electrical joints using the brush applicator within the can. It dries in just a few minutes leaving a low-loss, flexible and impervious coating on your cable. No more water ingress! A single 118ml can contains enough of the product for dozens of connections!
Liquid Electrical Tape is potentially harmful to health. It must be used only as indicated on the pack. Wear impervious gloves and eye protection when using this product. Use in a well ventilated area. Store away from children.
Once fully dry, no special handing or precautions are required

Well this is the 2nd pot of liquid tape I have bought from Richard and it probably won't be the last. Enough said and after years of trying in vain to keep water out of coax cables using various tapes, including 3 M 88, Denso, self amalg etc. Follow the instructions and you will have a perfect water tight seal and I would never be without the pot in my toolkit.

I have used this before and found it to be perfect for my hobby of amateur radio. I enjoy building my own antennas and what is good is I can get the antenna in place and set the SWR and then seal up the components. Easy to use and apply. Works over amalgam tape for extra waterproofing.

If only I had discovered this years ago but better late than never. Just been using it to fill the voids where the wires go into some 9006 plug and sockets on my car, which had previously been open to the elements and corrosion. So much easier to insulate and protect fiddly connections than using self-amalgamating or traditional pvc insulation tape or heatshrink.

I've not seen this product before I stumbled upon it via SOTAbeams. I've started using it for all sorts of things that I've previously done with insulating tape or amalgamating tape. It's been great for motorcycle electrics. Love the stuff!

I am very impressed with the liquid tape. I managed to seal the coax feed in to an antenna which had previously proved difficult with ordinary tape.

Well I hadn't heard of liquid tape before I visited SOTAbeams.
And although I have used self amalgamating tape in the past I found
that I had to add electrical tape to stop it unwinding.
However, after using Liquid tape I found it really gets into the gaps where self amalgamating doesnt.
I have just one request and that is if there is a CLEAR version
available instead of black? That way when I inspect coax joints I could actually see if there was any corrosion due to moisture ingress.
I have to give this item 5 Stars! Yes it is expensive, but should last a long time.

After years of struggling to get self-amalgamating tape to totally seal between connectors and cable, around awkward fixing bolts and in other less than easy situations, I find this product provides the answer. Easy to apply, quick drying, permanent, yet easy to remove. Essential item for the tool box.

SOTAbeams Liquid Electrical Tape is the perfect product for a any antenna constructor. I find it absolutely essential for ensuring connections and joints are properly waterproofed.

Does what it says on the tin - great for ALL outside unprotected connections etc Everyone should have some.
