    Just did a search and found the stuff.
    It is just self amalgamating tape that is sold by Gaffer under the trade name Kraken

    It really is very good at doing what it does and I could not be without a roll in the workshop to seal up any wiring repairs or similar that has been done

    How cheap it is depends on what you want to use it for.... repaqiring an upstairs burst pipe for £10 seems like a real bargain to me!

    If you need self AMALGAMATING TAPE, try screwfix for a fraction of the price, (under £2 a roll)
