Conformable Self-Amalgamating tape based on polyisobutilene interleaved with an easy to remove plastic film, non tacky and easy to apply and handle.
For jointing, splicing and repair cables, for making watertight seals at sleeve joints both above and below ground in conjunction with soft PVC tapes. The Self Amalgamating Tape can be used to repair and protect against corrosion on hose and plastic and metal tubes.
Very good electrical and physical properties the tape amalgamates quickly when applied under tension providing a void-free homogeneous wrapping without external heat. It is highly resistant to prolonged immersion in the water and has a very good resistance to ozone.
Strip back the interleaving and stretch the tape to reduce its width by one third to keep the tape under tension and wrap over lapping successive layers by about 50%. Finish the wrapping by holding the tape and snap by stretching. The high degree of stretching will prevent the inclusions of void and ensure a rapid self-amalgamation.
The life of the tape exposed out of doors is expected to be several years. If the tape will be subjected to abrasion an external covering by soft PVC tape is recommended.
