Vulcanova Tape (VLT)

vulcanova tapeA conformable, self-amalgamating tape based on polyisobutylene, colour black. For joining (splicing) and repair of a wide range of power and distribution cables up to 46 KV.

Can also be used for protection against corrosion on metal pipework. Electrical properties show a high degree of stability under conditions of use. The tape is also highly resistant to prolonged immersion in water and has excellent resistance to ozone.

It is compatible with most hot pouring compounds used in joint-boxes.
