Installation Techniques 


The tape shall be applied in half-lapped layers with sufficient tension to conform and produce a uniform covering. In most applications, this tension will reduce the tape’s width to approximately 5/8 of its original width. On pigtail splices, the tape should be wrapped beyond the end of the wires and then folded back, leaving a protective cushion to resist cutthrough. Apply the tape with no tension on the last wrap to prevent flagging. 




Temflex 1610 Electrical Tape is stable under normal storage conditions.
