Liquid Tape is a rubber coating that takes the place of electrical tape by providing electrical insulation to hard-to-reach places.
How to use:
Surface must be clean and dry. For best results avoid direct sunlight, high humidity or breezy conditions. Using brush cap, stir gently and thoroughly before each use. Always disconnect power before making repairs allowing Liquid Tape to thoroughly dry before restoring power. Follow local electrical codes.
- Liquid Tape can be used over existing connections using connectors, solder tape and shrink tube.
- Apply Liquid Tape to connection or repair area. Make sure to completely coat repair for air- and water-tight seal.
- Allow 10 minutes minimum between coats. A minimum of two coats is recommended.
- Allow 4 hours minimum dry time before use.
Tips for Brush-In-Cap Container:
If thinning is desired, product thickens, or for cleanup, use naphtha, xylene, or toluene solvents. Allow 4 hours per coat for complete dry. Keep container tightly closed when not in use.

- Hold can 12-16” from surface, moving can back and forth slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply heavy enough to produce an even, wet appearance.
- Allow 30 minutes minimum between coats. Apply as many coats as desired (3-4 average).
- Allow 4 hours minimum dry time before use. Always disconnect power before making repairs, allowing Liquid Tape to thoroughly dry before restoring power. Follow local electrical codes.
Tips for Aerosol Container:
Always protect surrounding areas from overspray. Allow 4 hours per coat for complete dry. If runs or sags are experienced, move can further away from surface. To avoid clogged nozzle, turn can upside down and spray for 5 seconds. If clogged, remove nozzle and soak in naphtha or mineral spirits for 30 minutes. Do not stick pin or other objects into stem. Use naphtha, xylene (xylol), or toluene (toluol) for cleanup. Do not coat surface in one application as bubbles may appear in the dried film; reducing its insulation properties.
Caution: Turn off power before starting electrical work and follow your local electrical codes.
- Provides excellent protection from acid, alkaline, and abrasion

LIQUID TAPE FAQs
What can I use to reduce Liquid Tape Electrical if it becomes too thick or if I need a thinned down Liquid Tape coating for my application?
You can add 10-20% of either Naphtha or Toluene depending on your particular situation or application.
What is dielectric strength?
Dielectric strength refers to a material’s ability to insulate against electrical shock. Liquid Tape Electrical is rubber-based, provides excellent electrical insulation, and is suitable for all types of household applications. Further dielectric information is available upon request.
Can Liquid Tape Electrical be removed?
Yes, carefully cut and peel Liquid Tape Electrical from the repair area. (Be sure to follow all health and safety warnings as well as local electrical codes when working with electricity).
