Application Instructions

  • Ensure the product is conditioned to at least 15°C before use for optimum performance.
  • The surface of cable and connector should be clean.
  • Start the tape on cable approximately two inches from connector.
  • Make sure the tape is stretched during application.
  • While stretching the tape, make one wrap on cable ensuring the tape is wrapped onto itself as it will only adhere to itself. Continue wrapping the cable and connector using half overlap layers.
  • To terminate, wrap the tape onto itself and place your thumb at the termination point and stretch the tape until it breaks.
  • Two layers are recommended.
  • The loose end of the termination should be thumbed down.

Storage & Handling

  • Avoid direct contact between the tape and petroleum-type solvents and oils and store the rolls flat on their edge at a storage temperature between 10°C to 30°C. The product must be protected from dust, heat, moisture, direct sunlight, and solvent fumes. Under these conditions, the storage life of the product will be at least 5 years.
