Premium self-fusing butyl rubber tape, widely used for the electrical insulation, protection, waterproofing, and termination of 6-22kV cables.
No inter liner, no peeling off time. Exceptional weatherability and ozone resistance. Excellent resistance to moisture, water, and chemicals. Good self-fusing properties — completely self amalgamates in two hours.
To use this tape correctly, elongate approximately 80% (almost twice its original length). Keep the tape under tension and wrap, overlapping successive layers approximately 50% until the desired build-up of insulation is achieved. Finish by folding the tape end inside for about 2cm, to avoid the danger of external pressure making it difficult to unwind. The surface on which this tape is to be used must be clean, dry, and free from grease and dust.
Application temperature – From -10°C to 40°C
