  • About self amalgamating tape

    Self amalgamating tape, also known as self fusing tape, is a self bonding rubber or silicone tape used for electrical insulation applications. When stretched and wrapped around itself, this product fuses together to form a strong, waterproof and electrically insulating layer. Self amalgamating tapes are commonly used for waterproofing, corrosion protection, jointing and repair of cables. Products are available for general purpose, low voltage and higher voltage applications.

    Self amalgamating tape characteristics:

    • Conformable
    • Moisture resistant
    • Non-tacky
    • Available in a range of colours and thicknesses
    • Easy to use and apply
    • Range of service temperatures
    • High stretch performance
    • Available in rectangular and triangular profiles
    • Excellent weathering resistance
