Dry Vinyl Tape

Does anyone know of a supplier for dry vinyl tape in Australia?

I can get it from the manufacturer in the states but only in box lots (20mm tape, 160 x 30m rolls in a box).

I really don't need 160 rolls. 2 - 3 would probably do what I need.

What's it used for?

Maybe you can become the Aussie supplier care of 1 bulk order from the US and selling off the surplus via ozzy-fleabay.

I tend to use the rubber self-bonding 'dry' tape for lots of odd sealing jobs on the truck and around the house.

No thanks. Been there, tried that. It's good when you have something new that everyone want's but as soon as others see you doing well with it then someone else comes along and sells the same or similar for half the price. Then someone else sells them for 1/4 the price. Soon it becomes pointless as the cost is more than the time is worth doing it.

Source for this? Is it good for high temp.

I've got silicone rescue tape but given that it's about $1 a meter it's way too expensive to use for wiring loom.

Actually found it.

Similar pricing to rescue tape.

The dry vinyl is about 5c per meter and it's what Ford and other manufacturers use.

I got 2 rolls through a TV ariel installer. He said they buy it by the box load and use a roll of tape per install.

Available here:

Self Amalgamating Tape

That's about the cheapest I've seen it.

I bought mine in Kmart Karratha when they had a sale on. $10 per 5m roll.

Only suggestion I have is to use the self-amalgamating tape but NOT to form a continous loom. Just bind the wires at every junction then every 10cm or so, then encase in the black plastic split loom.
