Black PVC tape, also known as electrical tape, is an indispensable tool for installers. Crafted from durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC), it plays a vital role in electrical insulation, protecting against live wires and reducing the risk of shocks and short circuits. Additionally, it excels in bundling cables.
Preparation: Ensure clean and dry surfaces before applying.
Proper Wrapping: Apply it evenly with slight overlap for a secure seal.
Stretching: Avoid overstretching to maintain elasticity and adhesive properties.
Cutting: Use a sharp tool to cut it cleanly.
Safety: Always adhere to safety guidelines when working with electrical installations.

Our black self-amalgamating electrical rubber repair tape serves as a valuable derivative of insulating tape, specifically designed for waterproofing connections. Crafted from Ethylene Propylene rubber, it excels in the jointing and repair of power and distribution cables. The application is straightforward: peel off the top protective layer, wrap the rubbery self-amalgamating tape securely around the connection, and watch it rapidly amalgamate under tension to create a waterproof seal. This tape is highly recommended for automotive work and aerial installations, particularly those involving satellite TV setups where cables enter the LNB and polariser.
