Scotch 23 Tape by 3M
Self-amalgamating tapes made from an insulating elastomer, usable at low, medium and high voltages.
The layers amalgamate into a homogeneous mass after application.
Applications: reconstitution of insulating cable up to 69 kV, replacing soldering, metal braids on lead sheathing, making waterproof joints.
Dielectric strength: 31.5 kV/mm Colour: black Elongation at break: 1000% Temperature resistance - continuous: 90 °C
- peak: 130 °C
Thickness: 0.76 mm
- Primary electrical insulation for cable jointing and terminating up to 69kV
- Suitable for jacketing on HV splices & terminations and end sealing on HV cables
- Can be stretched upto 100% to give void free, moisture resistant insulation
- Physical & electrical properties unaffected by the degree of stretch
Primary electrical insulation for splicing cable from 600V to 69kV on all solid dielectric cables. Primary insulation for building stress cones on cables up to 35kV on all solid dielectric cables. Jacketing on high-voltage splices and terminations. Moisture sealing electrical connections. Bus bar insulations. End sealing high-voltage cables.
Based on Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR). Physical and electrical properties are unaffected by the degree of stretch. Self-fusing tape. Excellent electrical properties. A special polyester liner which will not stick to the tape upon unwind. Compatible with all solid dielectric cable insulation:- Polyethylene (high and low density). Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE). Polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Butyl rubber. Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR). Oil-based rubber.
