Self fusing silicone tape

Anyone ever use this?
I was looking for 20mil (.02 inch) clear tape and it came up.
Wanted to repair floor.
It seems "double sided". So would it stick to linoleum and what do you do about the top side. Actually as it comes it isn't even sticky. I'm assuming it emits fumes which cure?
(Someone might step on it.. ok could put some box, but don't trust)

Yeah, it's great.

No, probably not. it sticks to itself. It's good for wrapping around things, with overlap, so that you have one layer of tape over another layer of tape. After a day or two, it's one blob instead of separate layers.

Haven't noticed that. And I woudln't say it sticks to itself. It merges with the adjoining layer, more or less like two drops of water merge when one gets big enough to touch the other.

What problem do you have that you want to repair?

Seems like it's no use for a popped nail holes in the floor. Might just go back to original plan to put adhesive tiles over it. I was also looking for transparent tiles. (Ha!)
ANy good for fixing handles on things?
Too sticky?
Much obliged

Another thing is that you have to stretch it as you wrap it around something. It stretches to about 3 times its length. Stretch too much and it breaks, but you can still use what broke off. It's the stretching and then sort of contracting a little bit that makes it grab on to the layer below it. Not stickiness.
It's expensie but great for where it's needed. It usually has a white plastic core, instead of cardboard . But a year ago, I found something sort of like it cheap at Home Depot. Can't find my current role and couldn't find it at the store again. boohoo. Not sure if it was the same thing or almost as good, or not.

Check out the plumbing supply section or electrical doo-dads at a Menard's (or any of the other Big Box stores) I bought something similar to what you're describing and I'm almost certain I found it in the plumbing section although it also works for electrical work.
If I get a chance over the weekend - possible but not likely with the schedule I have this weekend - I'll see if I can locate my roll and get the info on it.
IIRC it was in one of those plastic blister packages perhaps 4" x 6"

I'll look. I don't need it now but to help others find it. When I first saw it and bought it, it was in a rack that wasn't in any related deparment, just baskets of several miscellaneous things

In my case, I think it was just wrapped in "cellophane". If it had a blister pack, it woudl have had a name, and I likely would have saved the cardboad part with the sku etc.
The original stuff is hard to find, especially when I didn't know the term silicon tape, or silicone? . When I'd misplaced both my first two rolls, I looked all over, including an electrical supply store and no one had it. I'd bought it from a catalog, but didn't remember which. But I found both rolls.

If you have nail heads popping up, putting any non-ceramic tile over it is not going to do anything, the nail heads will push right through the tiles. With a ceramic tile, you might be able to get away with it.
