High Strength Alternative to Insulating Tape

TPC Wire & Cable provides a line of self-fusing silicone tape called Vulko-Wrap. The products are designed to be used in place of typical adhesive insulating tape. TPC offers the product in several different configurations, 40mil thickness, 50mil thickness in both yellow and black. It is also offered with an embedded reinforced glass yarn for added strength. This product has been used for cable management in place of plastic wire ties. The benefit is that the reinforced Vulko-Wrap product will not cut into cable jackets and cause cable failure.
