- Product Info
Raychem HVBT is a heat-shrinkable, adhesive-coated tape which provides insulation enhancement and protection against accidentally induced discharge. Raychem tape HVBT is designed to combine the integrity of a heat-shrinkable tubing with the versatility of a wraparound product. It is quick and easy to install. Upon application of heat, the tape shrinks down and the adhesive lining melts which amalgamates the overlapping layers together, producing a complete lap to lap seal.
A single layer of Raychem tape HVBT, two-thirds overlapped, will provide AC voltage withstand (flashover protection) to at least 17.5 kV increasing to 25 kV if a second layer is applied. Although Raychem tape HVBT will stick to itself and other insulating materials it will not adhere to metal or porcelain allowing easy removal for maintenance.
Raychem tape HVBT offers a simple and effective solution to the problems of retrofit insulation of busbars, particularly where existing equipment cannot be dismantled. It can be used for indoor and outdoor applications and is easily installed over a wide variety of shapes, including complex connections.
Comes in Original Raychem Packaging.
