Scotch® Electrical Semi Conducting Tape 13 is a 30 mil, highly conformable, electrical semi conducting tape. This tape retains its conductivity with stretch. It offers excellent performance with the most solid dielectric cable insulations and conductors. The tape is suitable for indoor or outdoor applications.
The tape is non vulcanizing and shelf stable while maintaining stable conductivity over a wide temperature range. The tape elongates easily and conforms to irregular shapes. This semi conducting, premium grade tape provides excellent shielding for cable joints on solid dielectric insulated power cables. It withstands temperatures up to 194 °F (90 °C). The ethylene propylene, rubber based tape electrically rounds out high voltage connectors and bonds to insulating materials that minimize electrical stresses.
