Hi Danny yes you can use it to wrap that electrical box but as the comment below mentions installing an outdoor enclosure over it would be better. Have fun Ron at ron.kipper@idealindustries.com

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Wire Armour is similar to other vinyl electrical tapes. The pro grade seems to be a bit stronger than the premium grade and there is very little difference between the two. The pro grade has a shiny finish, (Premium grade has a satin finish). Both are durable, have good adhesion and workability. As with all vinyl tapes, you can tear off a piece, but easier to cut it so it doesn’t compromise your repair. This brand is imported so this is why I lowered my star rating.

This is an excellent vinyl electrical tape to use around the house for something like replacing an existing light for a ceiling fan with all the wires to connect. It has a high elasticity but that makes it more difficult to tear off. You need to use a cutter or scissors. It therefore is strong and adheres when it's applied to wire connections. It is listed as flame retardant and has a temperature rating of 0 to 221 degrees F. It is also a great price for a package of 5 for the quality.

(What's this)
The problem with having to do electrical work for me is, I own rental properties and it usually involves a repair or upgrade of some sort. This can involve a stifling hot attic or a freezing cold garage. That is why I'm very glad that the adhesive is effective from very cold to very hot. And everything in between. The tape stretches very nicely for a tight seal. And it's great that it is rated against many forms of corrosion for safety.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Stacks up well against many people's benchmark--- the trusted 33+. The stretch, strength, flexibility, and adhesion is pretty darn good. The case really is needed if you're not going to use up a roll quickly. I learned on and have always turned to the 33+, but would have no problems switching to this tape. Made in Spain. I did a few quick tests. Adhering to lightly dusty materials was no problem. It wasn't happy sticking to lightly oiled plastics or rubbers, but it did it well enough that you could stretch and wrap over itself for a tight bond. It was not bothered by being submerged in water if the end was neatly cut and pressed down. If the end was stretched and broken leaving a ragged end, water would creep up the tape and it would come off after a few hours. The same results were observed with a light, thin oil. The tape was resistant to burning and a marker wrote well on the tape. I find that to be acceptable performance given the intended use. I found a somewhat novel use for it. My neighbor's finger had swollen around his wedding band and he was in discomfort for a few days. They were about to go have the ring cut off when I thought to try this tape. This tape's stretch and strength was great. A few wraps was enough to compress his finger to a smaller size and the smooth surface allowed the ring to be pulled right off with soapy water as a lubricant. The tape saved a man's priceless wedding band.

This particular tape is vinyl and thus, it will be very useful when temperatures fluctuate - from 32 degrees to 200+ - it can withstand temp drops and rises. Easy to pull/stretch even after sitting in a fridge for 20 minutes - it's easy to unroll and get it "going." Stays on without unwrapping. Color-coded tapes will be useful for various markings of wires - no brainier. Handy plastic cover is useful to keep the roll intact and without dirt all over it. Great quality product! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Seeds Program Review

I received a 3 pack of “ideal” brand vinyl black tape. First off I was impressed with the plastic container with lid that hold each tape. When you have used the entire roll up you can use the container to store items like screws and tacks. Each roll of tape has a good amount of tape 66ft. I used the tape to wrap an extension cord it had a few cracks in it. The vinyl tape wrapped nicely around the cord. I really like this product. However, it is not made in America. It is made in Spain.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I've been spoiled! I want to believe electrical tape is electrical tape is electrical tape but this tape like so many others disappointed me. In comparison to what I consider the industry standard this tape is too stiff at room temperature and so I'm sure in cold weather will be even worse. Electricians don't cut tape they more snap it off when finishing a wrap. This tape is difficult to snap and balls up when it is leaving a wad that has to be flattened out. It isn't 3/4" wide (see attached photo in comparison to a tape that is) which isn't necessarily bad as when being applied to a receptacle which isn't 3/4" thick actually worked well. The surface appears to be covered in some type of oil which gets on the hands and is transferred to the adhesive on the tape. The card board spool is also smaller making it difficult to put on to a 'T' bar on the electrical pouch. The five pack is nice as we tend to go through a lot of tape on jobs, wrapping receptacles and switches, insulating splices and attaching wire to fish tapes for wire pulling. I'll probably give this away to a non-electrician.
