Welcome to our electrical tape resource center. Quick answers for busy electrical workers. Your job requires speed, efficiency and safety. A professional finish also requires wrapping skills and and having the right tapes in your toolkit. Here we share insights into electrical tape product selection, applications and training videos.
Ever wonder why tensile strength is crucial to a wrap? What happens to tape in extreme heat? What’s the difference between a rubber and a mastic and when do you use them together? Which barricade tapes work underground? Ever have a problem with fire ants chewing your connections? Acids dripping on your conduit? We can help you complete your toolkit.
