Takes a heating and keeps on sticking – High Temperature Tape (20mm 200-C) Reviews

Pros:
This is the widest kapton tape which DX sells. It is excellent for insulating all sorts of stuff, and can even serve as a heatsink isolator for power transistors. It's very tough and can take a lot of abuse before breaking. And naturally it's very heat resistant, so it's perfect for use as a masking tape for soldering.
Cons:
The adhesive isn't very sticky. If you get finger oils on it, it loses it's stickyness quickly.
Other:
Once it catches on fire, it REALLY burns quickly.
Bottomline:
This stuff is double the price anywhere else! Thanks DX for such a terrific bargain!
