Scotch® 77 Arc & Fire Proofing Tape

Scotch® 77 Tape is a 0.762mm thick, arc and fireproofing tape designed to protect all types of electrical cables. Its unique formulation allows the manufacture of an unsupported elastomer that expands in fire to provide a thick char build-up between the flame and cable. This insulating firewall acts as a heat shield and flame barrier, thus protecting the cables and accessories.
