Self Fusing Silicone Tape(SFST)

Maxwel 's KE30S series self fusing silicone tape (SFST) made from specially formulated silicone rubber that allows them to bond only to themselves,easy to order and highly functional,for emergencies and all-purpose repairs.

KE30S Rectangular Type

KE30S tapes are ideal for applications where a smooth, even layer of tape is not required.

KE30TRI Triangular Tape

Its tapered edges and a colored line along the apex. KE30TRI Tapes are designated to form a smooth surface when each wrap is advanced one half the tapes width. The colored guide line down the center of the tape makes wrapping with a one half advance a simple and repeatable process.

KE30SIN Fiberglass Reinforced Tapes

KE30SIN fusible tapes incorporate a sinusoidal fiberglass fabric that gives a controlled elongation and increased tear resistance and tensile strength of the tape.KE30SIN tape have a minimum elongation before fracture of 25%. The reinforcement has excellent mechanical characteristics while allowing the tape to conform to irregular shapes.

Advantages

• All tapes are protected by polyethylene or polyester interleaved liner.
• Remains non-tacky to the touch and does not adhere to other surfaces, or substrates.
• Remove cleanly without leaving any sticky residue behind like a vinyl electrical tape with pressure sensitive adhesive does when removed.
• Insulates with single wrap, thereby reducing labor time and cost.
• Dampens vibration and resists heat and mechanical shock as well as corona.
• Resists moisture, oxygen, ozone, and most harsh industrial chemicals, including acids and bases, to assure continuous high insulation values.
• Conforms smoothly when wrapped around complex forms such as wire bundles, elbows, t-fittings and couplings.
• Bonds to itself at room temperature within 24 hours to form a homogeneous profile.
• Note: Maxwel Self Fusing Silicone Tapes(SFST) form a homogeneous profile within minutes at room temperature.
• Bonds when wet.
