Adhesives: ECHOtape Repair Tapes

ECHOtape launches a new line of repair tapes for building contractors, homeowners and do-it-yourself enthusiasts. Providing an alternative to duct tape, the three new tapes, an All Purpose Repair Tape, an All Weather Repair Tape and a heavy duty All Leak Repair Tape are each designed to provide solutions for repairs, sealing, and waterproofing needs.

“In general, most people consider cloth duct tape the go-to repair tape, but it is not necessarily the best choice for all repairs,” said Risa Edelstein, director of marketing for ECHOtape. “For one thing, duct tape leaves a residue when you remove it, and it does not hold up well in extremely hot or cold temperatures. Duct tape also doesn’t provide a strong waterproof seal. Our new repair line addresses all these needs, and provides both temporary and permanent repair assistance. The repair line also delivers a no-fail solution when needing an adhesive on hard to stick surfaces like concrete and hard plastics.”

The All Purpose Repair Tape (VI-N6132) is the perfect tape for temporary repairs, and leaves less residue than traditional duct tape. This tape is strong and thick yet is more flexible and stretchy than duct tape. The All Purpose Repair Tape is ideal for fixing rips, tears, gashes, holes, cracks, and gaps on a temporary basis, and can be easily removed with no residue. It is also good for protecting certain surfaces from scratching, and not damaging them when the tape is removed. This tape is available in clear and white versions.

For applications where a stronger, permanent bond is required, the All Weather Repair Tape and All Leak Repair Tape are ideal. Both are made with a butyl-based adhesive, which is stickier than most tapes and can create a permanent seal that will withstand extreme temperatures and water. The adhesive is also VOC-free, making it ideal for use in green construction.

All Weather Repair Tape (BU-R8510), is two inches wide and sticky enough to be applied to concrete, stone, wood, glass, metal, plastic, cement, plywood, and damp fabrics. It is puncture and tear resistant, waterproof, and will not crack in temperatures as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit or melt in temperatures as high as 200 degrees Fahrenheit. It is ideal for sealing tears, holes or cracks. The tape is available in white, silver and black.

All Leak Repair Tape (BU-R8520) is a great tape if a watertight seal is needed in a repair. This tape is three inches wide, and is considered an extreme adhesive tape with double the stickiness of the All Weather Repair Tape. It is also designed to withstand a lot of water. The All Leak Repair Tape shares many of the same qualities as the All Weather Repair Tape, but is also resistant to corrosion. Because of its aggressive adhesiveness, the All Leak Repair Tape is ideal for repairing roof joints, skylights, RVs, pools, and ponds. This tape is available in black and white.
