  • About filament reinforced tape

    Filament reinforced tapes provide the dielectric strength of polyester film and the high mechanical strength of glass fibres. They offer low stretch, high tensile and edge-tear resistance for a more cost effective solution, compared with glass cloth tapes. Filament reinforced insulating tapes are excellent for anchoring lead wires to banding coils and end-turn taping. A special paper-backed filament tape is available for high-voltage oil-filled transformer applications.

    Utilising our range of converting capabilities we can offer filament reinforced insulating tapes in custom width and length rolls or in custom shapes and final presentations.
