Tape - Metallized Tape is rated
Rated 4 out of
Poly tape on steroids
I picked this up to check out as a supplement to my various types of foil tapes. Unlike normal metalized poly tape, which is often sold in reflective or black / white colors for use as refrigerant line set tape or for seaming reflective insulation, this one is rated for much higher temperatures.
I tested some on a section of the highest temp metal ducts of my gas furnace, and it held up over the winter. I also used some for seaming reflective insulation on the plastic tub of a dishwasher, and adhesion to plastic at high temps seemed to be effective as well.
So for those who hate carefully / slowly applying foil tape, this is an effective alternative despite not being the greatest value at only 25 meters. I still prefer foil tape for its conformability and stretch when shaping around corners etc, but those who hate peeling tape liners will probably love this!
