What makes a good vinyl electrical tape?

  • Icon for Dielectric Strength
    Dielectric Strength

    3M Electrical Tapes are made with special adhesives which don't contribute to corrosion, preserving the maximum electric field the insulation can withstand.

  • Icon for Elongation

    The capacity for a vinyl tape to stretch contributes to a good seal, protecting the cable with a smooth, professional wrap.

  • Icon for Elasticity
    Elasticity

    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.

  • Icon for Temperature
    Temperature

    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.

  • Icon for Adhesion
    Adhesion

    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.

  • Icon for Thickness
    Thickness

    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.


More than a low-voltage insulator, Vinyl Electrical Tape can replace and reinforce cable jackets
