CSL Test Drive: Flex tape
CSL used this tape to secure a mesh screen on a window instead of installing it inside the frame. Three years later the tape is still holding it up.
For leaking PVC guttering, CSL applied multiple layers of the tape on the inside only. In the severe weather of a tropical climate, water ran through again after a few months.
On galvanized steel not exposed to the sun or elements, CSL used the tape to cover rust spots that had emerged. It was seamless, easy to adhere and flexible over the corrugated underside.
Add this tape to your toolkit as it will see you through all sorts of household quick fixes.
