The family of Scotch® Professional Grade Vinyl Electrical Tapes are are backed by more than 75 years of 3M science and field-tested performance, and designed to work reliably in a wide range of standard to industrial conditions.
Cold or Hot | Moisture | Outdoor
An electrical professional faces harsh conditions on the job. This can mean making splices in freezing conditions. Only premium vinyl tapes can stick quickly in very low temperatures because their adhesive remains soft and sticky. In extreme heat, electricians want to get the job done quickly and efficiently, especially when overwrapping a mastic electrical tape which is engineered to flow when warm. If an economy vinyl tape with low adhesive strength is used in a very hot environment; over time it will curl, become brittle and crack, compromising the electrical insulation.
Adhesion | Dielectric | Elongation
Premium vinyl electrical tapes have higher values across the key components that impact performance. The stronger the adhesive and the more flexible and conforming the backing, the better the stretch and seal. If the installation is critical, a professional would rather not take risks with their job, their safety or their reputation.
Peace of Mind
Critical Jobs | Safety | Reliability | Reputation
Sometime electrical professionals cant afford tape failures. Whether it’s the environment an application will be exposed to or a requirement to ensure life saving power or avoid dangerous or catastrophic failures, or just your reputation for high quality work and exceptional service, critical jobs are a way of life. When an installation is hard to get to, like a stadium light, up in the mast of an ocean liner or down in a mineshaft; electricians like to ‘do it right the first time.’ To professionals, it makes sense to use some of the strongest, most durable products. A premium grade tape applied correctly helps reduce the risk of downtime caused by common electrical failures. Premium tapes are engineered for critical applications when you can’t afford to fail.
