On the coiltek coils there is tape on the outside edge of the coils what is it used for and can you buy it?

The tape is used to keep dirt from entering between coil and cover.

I use black electrical tape around edge for some covers that tend to fall off Deus are famous for a loose fit..
It works great

Clear Slow Set Epoxy Applied Right Works Wonderful.

When the coil cover wears is that epoxy easy to cut through?

Well, if the cover wears thin or out no, all you would have to do is just go on through the bottom and peel it back to one edge and then work the edge lose
the rest of the way around. The way I applied the epoxy is with the coil cover completely on the coil, and I take something like a pop-sickle stick and trim
one end way down to form a little paddle (way down). Then I mix the epoxy and I just dip and drag along the seem and it just flows into a perfect bridge
between the coil and the cover and then let it FULLY cure for 24 hours. So, the cover isn't glued on so to speak. And I've never found Epoxy to be a great glue
but rather a better filler.

I think you'll like the epoxy better. Here is another case where I sealed some coil seams. On the early version of the Fisher F series 11" DD coil the factory didn't
use any external seam sealer, but did so on the later released coils, I just used a round toothpick with some of the tip cut off to dip and drag the epoxy
down into and over the seams and let if just lay itself out. Some might say these seams are factory sealed, they are, but the one pictured below is
operator sealed.
