Very typical high-temp tape performs well – High Temperature Tape (10mm / 300-C) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Withstands high temperatures in an automotive setting (under hood attached to a supercharger).
Holds up against various solvents pretty well.
Withstands SMD soldering temperatures.
Cons:
This type of tape is not useful if you plan to tear it like you would duct or cellophane tapes.
Adhesive is typical of this kind of tape, too: works once, but don't expect to pick up and replace it.
These are not complaints about this particular product but about the whole family of products designed to do these jobs.
Other:
I bought this tape to do some under-hood labeling in a supercharged car. The engine temperatures get pretty high but the tape holds fast. This kind of tape will typically degrade over time until the adhesive hardens and the tape falls off if disturbed. If the adhesive hardens and the tape is not disturbed it should last.
Bottomline:
Don't expect tapes like this to remain flexible; that's really not what high-temp tape is for. It's supposed to be applied in a fixed position as a fastener in a high-temperature environment. It's not for making improvised hinges or flaps, but for attaching stuff to non-moving parts. Use it for this purpose and it will do every job you need it to.
