  • About acetate cloth tape

    The aesthetically pleasing acetate cloth tape offers excellent conformability in coil-wrapping applications up to 105°C plus excellent absorption of electrical insulation resins and varnishes. They are suited for applications such as anchoring ferrite strips on deflection yokes, as well as assorted insulating and holding coil applications where flame retardancy is a requirement.

    Utilising our range of converting capabilities we can offer acetate cloth tape in custom width and length rolls or in custom shapes and final presentations.

    Acetate cloth tape characteristics:

    • Very conformable and easy to handle
    • Available in a range of colours
    • Printable
    • Flame retardant
    • Good breaking strength, insulating and corrosion protection
    • Aggressive rubber resin adhesive
