Electrical insulation tapes are used to insulate materials that conduct electricity. They play a critical role in EIS (electrical insulation systems) for enhanced product safety and life span.
There are a number of products available, with differing performance levels, such as their insulation resistance, dielectric breakdown and ability to withstand extreme temperatures.
Their backings can be plastic, paper or cloth and these can be coated with a silicone, acrylic or rubber adhesive, in varying thicknesses. Options are available to meet the differing strength and resistance requirements of a range of applications and environments. These applications might include:
The characteristics required of your insulation tape will be determined by the application and other factors such as your substrates and environmental conditions. Products are available with varying features, which might include:
For cost savings and application effiiciencies, insulation tapes can be converted into non-standard slit roll widths and lengths, or custom shapes and liner presentations, designed to suit the end users application and processes.
