Insulating Tape - OEM

An electrical grade insulating tape should always be used in the manufacture of electrical components. 3M™ electrical insulating tapes are made from a broad range of backings and adhesives to meet the requirements of different applications and environments. Extensive quality control and testing, combined with accurate process controls, ensure that customers get high quality electrical grade products.

Acetate Cloth Insulating Tape

Acetate Cloth Insulating Tape

These aesthetically pleasing tapes offer excellent conformability in coil wrapping applications up to 105° C plus excellent absorption of electrical insulating resins and varnishes.

 
Antistatic Insulating Tape

Antistatic Insulating Tape

Antistatic Tapes from 3M help prevent ESD damage to sensitive electronic components in manufacturing environments.

 
Composite Film Insulating Tape

Composite Film Insulating Tape

These combine the high dielectric strength and edge-tear resistance of polyester film and non-woven polyester mat.

 
Epoxy Insulating Tape

Epoxy Insulating Tape

Offering solder and puncture resistance, high dielectric strength, conformability and UL recognition for flame redundancy and use at temperatures up to 155° C. Their versatility can help reduce your tape inventory.

 
Filament Reinforced Insulating Tape

Filament Reinforced Insulating Tape

Designed for applications needing both the dielectric strength of polyester film and the high mechanical strength of glass fibres. They offer the ultimate in low stretch, high tensile and edge-tear resistance. More cost effective than glass cloth tapes, they are excellent for anchoring lead wires to banding coils. A special paper-backed filament tape is available for high-voltage oil-filled distribution transformer use.

 
Glass Cloth Insulating Tape

Glass Cloth Insulating Tape

3M offers the most flexible and conformable glass cloth backings on the market with the highest temperature resistance and tensile strength. With excellent absorption of resins and varnishes, they are unsurpassed for holding and strapping applications up to 200°C.

 
Paper Insulating Tape

Paper Insulating Tape

3M™ Paper Electrical Tapes are used for banding coils, covering bobbin-wound coils, and for end-turn taping and provide excellent cushioning, puncture resistance and toughness .

 
Polyester Insulating Tape

Polyester Insulating Tape

These are specified for insulating applications requiring a thin, durable tape with high dielectric strength. They can withstand higher temperature conditions than tapes with acetate backing. They also are conformable, exhibit excellent chemical, solvent and moisture resistance and resist cut-through and abrasion.

 
Polyimide Insulating Tape

Polyimide Insulating Tape

3M Polyimide Tapes are designed to be used in high temperature applications. The physical and electrical properties of polyimide remain stable when used in such applications as coils, harnesses and capacitors, that experience extreme temperatures.

 
PTFE Film Insulating Tape

PTFE Film Insulating Tape

PTFE tapes from 3M are high-temperature tapes used in applications requiring consistent performance and minimum shrinkage across a wide range of temperatures. They are extremely resistant to chemicals, have high arc resistance and are free of carbonising materials.
