NOTE: Prices on Liquid Tape are set to rise soon. In an attempt to keep prices down I have secured a large quantity of RED liquid tape at a bargain price. I have passed this saving straight on to you!
With the high price of coaxial cable and antennas can you afford not protect your investment with this great product? Dries in minutes and is impervious to water.
Stocked in response to customer demand!
Price = £2.78/30ml (this is the amount sold by some other companies)
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

I used this liquid sealant to waterproof my SotaBeams HF balun. Follow the safety advice closely, as it appears to be quite dangerous. Keep well away from children and pets.
I applied 2 coats as suggested and it formed a strong waterproof layer. If the seal is still working in 6 months time I will give it 5 stars!

Once you have tried this liquid tape I guarantee you wont go back to silicone, insulated or self amalgamated tape, etc.
Works a treat and lasts for ages too! Now I use nothing else to completely protect my antenna feed points from the ingress of water - an excellent find for the outdoor ham!

Where do I start.
Ordered yesterday and arrived today. Fantastic shipping time.
The liquid tape is a real good product, it is the first time that I have used it, but it will not be the last. I sealed the joints and control boxes, and all connections on my antennas. They have all stayed bone dry and I have had no problems.
Richard, thanks a lot for excellent service from you, it can not be improved on.

Excellent antenna installation, weather resistance, I do not know.

This is my 2nd time I have ordered this product and is very good I use it on all jobs to be coated that would be open to the elements and is better to use than the amalgamating tape.

This is my second tin of "Liquid Electrical Tape", I operate on the beach in Blackpool and so I need all my terminal connections protected against the salt corrosion.
This is the ONLY product that works as it coats all of the terminals against exposure to the air very effectively.
I have used self amalgamating rubber tape in the past, but there are always small gaps and it is also difficult to adhere it to small terminals, whereas this product covers the smallest of terminals perfectly.
In a nutshell, I highly recommend this product and whats more its cheaper from Richard than anywhere else!

Very good product with excellent service from Sotabeams, good price with reasonable postage. Would buy again from Sotabeams in the future when I need more. Thank you.

First of all I would like to recommend SOTA Beams for the swift delivery. Ordered on a Sunday and arrived on Monday.
Have used the tape but unable to comment until the antenna has been exposed to the weather for a while.

Whilst I can not write a full review on this product at this moment in time ( due to having only used the product once ) I can inform those that are concerned that this product is very, very good, and well worth the investment.
