What types of electrical tape are there?
We all know that there are many types of products in the wholesale of adhesive tapes. Which electrical tapes can be subdivided into? Let's take a look:
The first is the insulating black tape, which only has the function of insulation, but it is neither flame retardant nor waterproof. It has been gradually phased out, and it is still used in some civil building electrical appliances. The second is pvc electrical flame retardant tape, which has three functions insulation, flame retardant, and waterproof, but because it is made of pvc material, it has poor ductility and cannot wrap the joints tightly, and the waterproofness is not ideal, but it has poor ductility. It has been widely used now. Then there is the high-voltage self-adhesive tape, which is generally used in higher-level voltages. Because of its good ductility, it is better than the second in waterproofing, so people also apply it in the field of low-voltage.
When purchasing, it is necessary to look at the appearance of the electrical tape to see if there are any defects, whether the rewinding of the tape is compliant, whether the slitting has burrs, and whether it is smooth or not depending on the material of the tape.
