3M has been in business for over 100 years and entered the world of tape in 1925 when we invented masking tapes. 3Ms invention of Scotch Brand No. 33 Electrical Tape in the 1940s marked a new chapter for insulating electrical connections and for the past 70 years, groundbreaking improvements put 3M at the forefront of vinyl tape innovations.
3M introduces a new line of Temflex™ general use electrical tapes for your everyday needs.
3M continues to invest in new manufacturing technologies to deliver high quality vinyl electrical tapes for your every day needs. If there is a job or application that requires electrical tape, 3M has a solution.
From the tradesman to the professional, we have a tape to fit every application.
3M Electrical Tapes are made with special adhesives which don't contribute to corrosion, preserving the maximum electric field the insulation can withstand.
The capacity for a vinyl tape to stretch contributes to a good seal, protecting the cable with a smooth, professional wrap.
Tape elasticity will continue to contract after it's applied, helping seal connections from external contaminants. The ability will return the tapes shape after it's been stretched, giving you more flexibility during installation.
3M premium vinyl tapes are designed to perform in a wide range of extreme temperatures. This is to prevent peel and material deterioration, which can compromise tape performance.
When your tape has to be long lasting, adhesion matters. Higher grade raw materials contribute to our tape adhesion ratings over a range of temperatures, giving you sticking power when and where you need it.
The thicker the tape, the better the protection against punctures and abrasion from rough environments. When used as a primary low voltage insulation, the extra padding helps increase dielectric strength.
