25mm Scapa Self Amalgamating Tape (Made In UK)
Self amalgamating tapes are rubber based, extremely versatile materials, that are non-tacky making them very easy to use and apply. Product characteristics and properties also relates to the type of rubber used in the construction of the tape. They are used particularly for waterproofing, corrosion protection, jointing and repair of cables.
PIB (Polyisobutylene) rubber based tapes have excellent amalgamation properties. However, generally these products are used more for general purpose or low voltage applications as the service temperature and electrical properties are generally lower than than EPR rubber based tapes.
EPR (Ethylene Propylene) rubber based tapes also have excellent amalgamation properties but with better levels of temperature performance and electrical properties are more often the first choice for higher voltage cable applications.
