South African lock down due to CoVid-19:
As of 4th May 2020 South Africa is under level 4 lock down, which means that we at Petrotape are now permitted to operate with no more than 30% of our staff at our factory. This means we can begin supplying you but currently cannot do deliveries and are a limited in our capacity which may affect lead times. The reduced staff also makes it difficult for us to always monitor for incoming phone calls, so please use email when possible. We are still able to do most remote administrative work so can continue to do quotes for example. Please contact us on sales@ for assistance with these matters during the lock down.

Petrotape is an adhesive tape and pipe wrapping manufacturer and distributor located in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Our range of products on offer can be found on our products page, but some of our main products are outlined below:

Petrolatum tape.

Petrolatum impregnated cloth tape is used as an anti corrosion pipe wrapping on buried and above ground pipes and pipelines. The product is simple to apply and requires no specialised equipment or skills. The tape is wrapped around the pipe in a spiral bandage form to create a water and air impermeable protective barrier that helps prevent corrosion of the steel pipe.

PVC tapes.

We are able to supply a wide range of PVC adhesive tapes, including PVC electrical insulation tape and PVC floor marking tapes. These are available in a variety of widths and colours and include some common use names such as joining tape, shutter tape, demarcation tape, lass tape and hazard tape.
