All of this tape information is so fragmented, can we just summarize it into a sticky?
Can someone fill in the blank about Kapton tape? is it more puncture resistant? What are it's properties for bicycle applications (in words most of us can understand)
3M (Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, just so you know): Adhesive pressure sensitive, slightly stretchy vinyl tape.
Self Fusing Silicon Tape: Self fusing, stretchy, no adhesive backing. Slightly thicker than 3M electrical tape.
Kapton Tape: Polyimide film with silicone adhesive for easy release.
Elliott Tape EG ET301 Loom Tape: Dry vinyl tape, no adhesion layer. Self Adhesion. Stretches just a little, similar to electrical tape.
