Tube "tape"

Does anyone know where I can buy "tape" used on joining tubes for my Avon SR 5.4?
I did some patches and I had to remove old ones.

I mean something like that:

I think its just lower density hypalon strips. I am sure Paul Tilley will keep it. or you could just cut some with a scalpel and straight edge?
contrary to popular belief it isnt actually gaffer tape or duct tape
you could probably get away without it if you sikaflex the edges of the seams to stop water lifting them?

we dont use the hypalon tape that avon used to use as it has no strength ,we cut strips out of the normal tube fabric
