  • Electrical insulation tape

    Electrical insulation plays an important role in product safety. If you’re designing products that require electrical insulation systems (EIS), speak to us about the range of electrical insulation tapes available. We supply products with a variety of backings and adhesives which meet industry specifications including military, UL, CSA and IEC.

    Your electrical insulation tape is available in custom slit roll widths and lengths, or die-cut shapes, suited to your exact requirements.
