Default Source for Shrink Wrap TAPE

Does anyone know of an internet source for tape that will shrink after application?
I think I recall seeing this in a catalog somewhere but can't remember.

I believe you're looking for "self-bonding" silicon tape, like that sold in sailing departments of marine chandleries, about $7 roll.

"Originally developed for the military, X-TREME TAPE® is a high quality wrap made from a special silicone compound which adheres to itself when wrapped under tension. X-Treme Tape won’t melt up to 500°F(260°C), has a tensile strength of 600 psi and can insulate up to 8000 Volts!"

• Automotive, Plumbing, Sports, Outdoor, Electrical, Garden, Tools, & Marine
• No Adhesive - Bonds Only to Itself
• Won’t Melt Up to +500°F(+260°C)
• Remains Flexible to -60°F(-54°C)
• Forms a Permanent Air & Water Tight Seal
• Tensile Strength of 600 psi
• Insulates to 8000Volts (for a 20 mil wrap)
• Stretches to 3x’s its Length
• Conforms to Irregular Shapes
• 1” Wide x 20 mil Thick x 10’ Long

"X-Treme Tape® withstands xtremes in temperature, pressure, moisture, corrosion & contaminants."
