    Magic Wrap Multi-Purpose Rubber Repair Kit In A Roll

    This product is something else. I have had a couple rolls in storage for a few years now, and never used it. The intent was to use it for plumbing problems or heater hose problems on my vehicles. For my vehicles I haven't had a leaky hose since I owned a 1979 LeBaron, Chrysler quality is sooooo good in that area.

    With the pressure reducing valve leaking profusely on my home hot water heating system last evening, I decided to break open a roll and give it a try. "Magic" is the word for sure. I imagine there are similar products out there with different brand names, but here's what this product is saying at:

    Magic Wrap®
    Emergency Repair Kit on a Roll

    Magic Wrap® is an Emergency Repair Kit on a Roll. A poly-butyl rubber compound, Magic Wrap® is activated when stretched. This activation causes
    Magic Wrap® to adhere to itself. Thus, any object which can be spiral wrapped can be repaired or sealed.

    Magic Wrap® is ideal for use on dirty or wet surfaces. Because there is no adhesive, there is no reason that dirt or moisture will cause it to fail. Repairs
    can even be done underwater.

    100s of Uses

    Magic Wrap® is ideal for the following repairs:

    •Automotive - will repair engine hoses, even fuel lines (to repair fuel lines, the white liner must be used first, then the Magic Wrap® over top of the white liner. The white liner prevents any reaction between the fuel and the Magic Wrap®.)
    •Electrical - UL listed
    •Plumbing - works on copper and PVC pipes under pressure - no need to turn off the source of water
    •Sealing, weatherproofing, splicing, covering, holding/bundling, joining and repair applications
    •General Household repairs
    •Sporting goods - grips for hockey sticks, tennis rackets, fishing rods
    Check this stuff out. You may want to keep a roll handy.

    How about this stuff as a quick fix for those famous rear heating pipes? It stops leaks and creates a later / mass of homogenous like rubber that can withstand high temperatures and pressures.

    The Navy used that as electrical tape.
    I really like the stuff unless I have to get to the wires again. It will need to be cut.
    It sticks only to itself. It pretty much does a nice job of sealing.

    Yes, it forms a mass of rubber and you have to cut it apart. I had heard the stuff was tenacious but never used it before. I was impressed.

    I work as a maintenance man for a property management company here, and have used it several times on copper plumbing pipes as a quick fix, until a more permanent solution could be done, this has been on both hot and cold pipes, it is an amazing tool, I always have a roll handy, the vinyl paper in between has to be cut, not the easiest to tear, but for once the term "and it really, really works" applies. I can see many uses for it, hadn't thought of using it as electrical wrap tho' that makes sense. Thanks for the tip. Heres one I can teach my dad.

    My father taught me two things " you really only need 2 tools in life..WD40..and a roll of duct tape. If its supposed to move and doesn't, use WD40...if it moves and its not supposed too, use duct tape". Lesson #2.." if it can't be fixed by a whack with a hammer,... its electrical "
