Tape isn’t sticky like regular tape, when you remove the plastic cover it fuses to itself. It’s designed for wrapping around itself. For that it works fantastic.

Tape is not sticky or adhrsive. Needs to be secured with additional adhesive tape. It does seem fairly robust to contain a leaking tube when wrapped around.

Plastic layer is a little bit harder to peel off than Uni-wrap PN#09-30450. Not problematic at all though. Very usefull product.

Great stuff! ... Im always forgetting to put on shrink tube until after the terminals are on. Rescue tape does the job.
