Why does my tape split?
If you are using PVC tape and the conditions are cold, this tape will begin to split.
To fix this, store the next box you are about to use in a slightly warmer location, this will mean it will be fine to use when you need it.
You will typically find that the first few metres will split, because these are the layers exposed to the elements.
