Liquid Electrical Tape

Here is something that is probably useful sometimes. Liquid electrical tape.

Just dip things in it or paint it on for a flexible, protective, insulating coating.

You might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.

Use it to power LEDs on your fin tips. Great for night launches

how would it help getting power to fin tips?

Would this stuff work for coating CF to maybe reduce interference? Can see it being an easy way of insulating tricky to get at parts.. have thought of using that plastic dip paint for the same thing but this is probably better... good find Stewart

This is probably the same as "that plastic dip paint".

Forgot to mention that it is quite stinky and probably best off to use in a well-ventilated space. Better for your health anyway.
