A review of waterproofing tape by Sylglas

Sylglas Original Waterproofing Tape is an excellent method for sealing and preventing corrosion to outdoor metal pipes. While there are many benefits to using this tape, there are also several limitations. Overall, it is a good product that gets the job done in the garden, around the house and even in automobiles.

Introduction

It can often be difficult to find a way to successfully seal a leak. Luckily, Sylglas Original Waterproofing Tape does just that. There are many similar cloth tape with waterproof fabric, silver tape and gaffers tapes on the market, however, they are not made from the highest quality, most robust material like those used by Sylglas. There have been many satisfied customers that have utilised this product for their home maintenance requirements.

Positive points

Flexibility One of the most important aspects of Sylglas Waterproofing Tape is its ability to mould to the contours of any object. For instance, if there is a leak in an outdoor pipe, the duct tape will easily mould to the applied location. Many other Gaffer tapes do not have this flexibility. Multi-purpose Another advantage of the tape is the ability to use it in many places around the home and garden. The Waterproofing Tape can be used to stop the leak in a pipe, fix roof shingles outside, close a hole in a window pane or even prevent a leak inside an automobile. Furthermore, the tape can be laid in strips to line gutters or wrapped around pipes to protect from corrosion. It is also an excellent product for rust proofing almost any object. Durability In addition to its flexibility and multi-purpose usage, the tape is durable. It can withstand even the harshest indoor and outdoor conditions. The adhesion is strong allowing the tape to keep its composure during inclement weather, thus keeping your house dry.

Negative points

Difficult to handle One negative aspect of the tape is that it can be difficult to handle. When laying strips or wrapping it around an object, it is important not to stretch it out which could warp the tape. It is difficult to maintain its elasticity while attempting to apply it to a small area. Adhesion is messy Another con to the waterproofing tape is the adhesion side of the material which is gooey and messy. Although Sylglas provides gloves, it is extremely difficult to use when wearing the gloves. Despite the goo, it is best to apply the tape with your bare hands and scrub them when finished.
