Quick Self-inflating Tape / life-saving appliance

Quick Self-inflating Tape
Quick Self-inflating Tape

Every year, a lot of floods occur all around the world and threaten people’s life and property. This is a quick self-inflating tape, which can be winded onto a reel and transported easily. When you use it, you just need to tear off a length of it and open the protective film on the surface. Some chemical substances inside will react with each other, release a lot of gas and form a gasbag. You can stick the gasbag on a board or a door to make a simple life raft.
