3M: Insulating Tape (5/5/09)

May 5, 2009

A new electrical insulating tape from 3M offers a high-tack adhesive for quick and reliable holding in applications such as motor windings, uneven surfaces of wire windings and oily magnet wire. 3M Electrical Tape 44HT is a polyester composite insulating tape with a durable backing providing a tough, puncture-resistant protective layer.

Businesses with motor winding applications or hard-to-hold applications that require a higher tack adhesive for motor, transformer, switchgear and coil manufacturing should consider this tape with its strong/tacky rubber thermosetting adhesive. Specific applications include stick-wound coils/transformers and bobbin-wound coils for banding, anchoring, insulating and protecting start wires, leads, terminal strips, insulation paper, end turns, and connections in motors and transformers.
