Details
  • Tough, durable filament tape with thermosetting rubber resin adhesive
  • For applications needing both the dielectric strength of polyester film and the high mechanical strength of glass fibers
  • Low stretch, high tensile and edge-tear resistance
  • Excellent for anchoring lead wires to banding coils and end-turn taping
  • 7 mil thickness
  • UL Listed and RoHS 2011/65/EU Compliant

3M™ Tape 46 is an electrical tape with rubber adhesive. This tape is ideal for anchoring lead wires to banding coils and for end turn taping. This tape is 600V rated and withstands a temperature range of 32 to 266 °F (0 to 130 °C).

3M™ Tape 46 has a thermosetting, pressure sensitive, rubber adhesive, which provides excellent adherence. The polyester film/glass filament backing of this tape has outstanding physical and electrical properties. This tape is suitable for applications that require the high mechanical strength of glass fibers and the dielectric strength of polyester film. This tape is tough and provides high tensile strength, as well as low stretch. UL Listed and RoHS 2011/65/EU Compliant‎.
