I realize this is an old thread, but thought I'd post this. If you're in Canada and want some of this stuff it's available through www.mrherp.ca

I just ordered a bunch of 11" and it worked out to $22 per 2' heater with the clips and shipping included. It turned out he had just sold out of the 11" so he offered 17" at the same price. Great service and fast shipping.

I use it.
I don't see how there could be ANY long-term effects with this stuff. I have (2) 4' lengths of 12" wide heat tape from reptile basics that wrap my 15 gallon drum fermentors. There is so much surface area/watt, that it never really even gets "hot". I think at 4' in length, I am running somewhere around 80-90 watts of heat. Don't think of it like a 100 watt light bulb. There is SO much more surface area than that of a bulb. At any given time, I can hold my hand on it for as long as I want. There is absolutely NO risk of this thing heating up too hot and damaging something. Plus, I am running it in my chamber where I am lagering one beer and fermenting an ale with this setup. (see my signature)

I've been using these for a couple years with Johnson temp controllers with no issues. I've gotten them covered in blowoff and wort and whatever else might be around the brewery without a problem. They work great and clean up great too. Of course, with any electrical thingamabob be careful if it's plugged in and you're standing in a puddle or something.

And to echo Huaco's comment above, I don't see how it will ever get hot enough to cause a serious issue.

Anyone have experience with these and a corny keg fermenter? I am concerned about not enough of the surface area covered. Being somewhat OCD I don't want to overwrap in a spiral. I would rather it just go once around.
