• Seals, insulates and protects against moisture and corrosion.
  • Ideal for hard to reach places.
  • High electrical isolation.
  • By stretching and overlapping, the tape forms a homogeneous mass.
  • Ideal product for effective repairs on pipes, tubes and cables.
  • Easy – time-saving – reliable.


A conformable, self-amalgamating tape based on polyisobutylene, colour black. Vulcanova Tape can also be used for protection against corrosion on metal pipework. Insulation against electrical loss 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.


  • insulation and protection of electrical connections and cables
  • repairing and protecting of cable bundling
  • corrosion protection of metal pipes
  • temporary repairs of water hoses
  • insulation of electrical connectors
  • to improve all water resistance on electrical applications
  • for joining (splicing) and repair of a wide range of power and distribution cables up to 46 KV
