Scotch® Rubber Splicing Tape 23 is a highly conformable, self-fusing EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber) based, high voltage splicing tape. It is a nonvulcanizing, shelf-stable tape with high electrical properties. Scotch® Tape 23 can be used as an insulation for low-voltage application as well as an insulation for splices up to 69.000 volts.
Can be used to splice and terminate cables whose emergency overload temperatures can reach 130°C
Physical and electrical properties are unaffected by the degree of stretch
A special polyester liner which will not stick to the tape upon unwind
Primary insulation for building stress cones on cables up to 35.000 volts on all solid dielectric cables
Jacketing on high-voltage splices and terminations
Moisture sealing electrical connections
Bus bar insulations
End sealing high-voltage cables
Compatible with all solid dielectric cable Insulation:
- Polyethylene (high and low density)
- Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLP)
- Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
- Butyl Rubber
- Ethylene Propylene Rubber (PVC)
- Oil-based rubber
The high-voltage corona-resistant tape is based on Ethylene Propylene Rubber and is capable of operation at the emergency cable temperature of 130°C.
Scotch Rubber Splicing Tape 23 may be applied in either the stretched or unstretched condition without resulting in loss in either physical or electrical properties. The tape is split resistant, crack resistant, slip resistant and flag resistant when exposed to various environments (indoor or outdoor). It is compatible with synthetic cable insulations. Scotch® Tape 23 has a dissipation factor of less than 5% at 130°C, and a shelf life of 5 years.
