The Good Stuff

Extreme Environments
Cold or Hot | Moisture | Outdoor

  • Man with locator in fog

    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.

    • Strong adhesive consistently sticks in cold temperatures
    • Remains stable and sticks in extreme heat
    • Stretches and conforms for a nice, tight seal in moist, dry, and outdoor environments

High Performance
Adhesion | Dielectric | Elongation

  • wrapping tape around cable

    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.

    • High quality vinyl that conforms and stretches
    • Aggressive, electrical-grade adhesive is perfect for low voltage primary insulation
    • Flexible backings and strong adhesives combine to help deliver a reliable, tight seal

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.

    • Consistent quality and made in the USA
    • The tapes to use when you can’t afford costly downtimes and electrical failures
    • Helps reduce the risk of unscheduled repairs
