Self-Amalgamating tape is designed to be a stand-alone weatherproofing solution. COLD SHRINK TAPE has the ability to "weld" itself chemically and mechanically into a mass with no layers, to form a watertight skin. COLD SHRINK TAPE was developed in collaboration with international electrical engineers. Exceptional quality control pro- cedures are strictly applied throughout the manufacturing process ensuring a tape that delivers high performance, reliabilty and flexibility for a wide variety of applications.
When applied under tension, COLD SHRINK TAPE provides a neat, void free, continuous wrapping, without the need for external heat or pressure. It can be easily applied by hand, contouring closely to irregular shapes or bends to form a permanent insulating layer or waterproofing barrier. In addition, when cut, COLD SHRINK TAPE can be removed cleanly, facilitating easy access and inspection of the protected area. Service life for COLD SHRINK TAPE is projected to be several years when exposed to out-of-door conditions, and equal to cable life in enclosed locations.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS: Forms tough, homogeneous, watertight skin. Provides for temporary and/or long term protection even during prolonged immersion in water. Resists abrasion, impact, sunlight, and most chemicals. Eliminates need for overwrap in most applications. Keeps installation costs down. Requires no heat or open flame. Minimizes equipment, promotes safety and convenience. Cuts installation costs. Wraps a wide range of sizes, shapes, and materials. Reduces need for special tapes or devices. Lowers inventory. Has excellent electrical properties, water, resistance, ozone resistance and corrosion resistance at temperatures ranging from -40 degrees C to 100 degrees C continuous , and to 130 degrees C for short periods of time. Does not transfer adhesive. Does away with messy clean-up after use. Has little tack. Eases handling. Speeds application to save time.
