Experience has shown that Neoprene self adhesive tape is most successful achieving this IP seal when a constant compression rate in the neoprene tape of 10% of its thickness occurs.
The correct definition of “fuel resistance” is defined by the SAE (society of automotive Engineers ) & they have a standard test SAE J18 which measure the degree of “swell “ in sponge rubber (Neoprene ) & plastics (EVA & PE) , when exposed to fuels. This “swell” is indicative to the degree of stress cracking that will occur to a product over time. Stress cracking is the process of degradation or in simplistic terms, product failure.
