Is the adhesive on one side or both sides?b
Asked by: bill
No adhesive. You stretch it as you wrap and it clings to itself. So yes, you could use it on either side.

Will this tape repair a cracked / separated / broken, metal non-bendable electrical wire conduit?

Will this repair a cracked / broken metal, non-bendable electric conduit? I live in the northern most border of Minnesota and the conduit break is in an unfinished attack that stays dry but gets really cold in the winter. The metal conduit is completely separated at the break. The break that now separates the conduit is about 1" long, so there is an inch of electrical wire exposed. The electrical wires inside of the conduit are fine, just the metal conduit (AKA wire housing or wire jacket) itself is broken Rather than removing the non-bendable metal conduit from the break to the outlet and restringing the wire inside of a new conduit, I am thinking that this mastic tape [Or perhaps some other product?] may be capable of basically joining the broken metal conduit back together in an improvised sort of repair? . Thank you for any thoughts, advice, etc..
Asked by: Deloppoled
The only solution the electrical code will recognize as valid will be to do as you suggested, but... You need to fix more than the conduit gap, that gap means the ends are 1" farther apart than when it was installed and pulling the electrical wire inside the conduit which will eventually be dangerous. Another important question is why there is a 1" gap in the electrical conduit at all? Obviously the structure it's attached to isn't stable, and the ends of the conduit are now 1" farther apart than when it was installed, but why? Wood shrinks when it dries, and wouldn't cause a gap, so that isn't what's happening. Some part of the structure is moving and from your description it's still moving. 1" is enough to weaken nailed joints significantly, so Just watching it move could become an expensive show. If why it's moving and how to correct it isn't immediately apparent to you, then contact a civil engineering firm to take some measurements to determine what's moving and why and suggest a solution.

Not sure about permanently, but I used this to temporarily seal an element connection in a water heater for a month.
