Polyester Tapes

Thin, conformable, tough and highly tear resistant. These type of tapes are best suited for use on small coils where dimensional restrictions limit insulation build up. FCR offers the #149, 1 mil Polyester Film Tape which is engineered for fine wire applications requiring a non-corrosive tape. Polyester backings can accommodate temperatures up to 130 C and can also offer flame retardancy. Examples of flame retardant polyesters would be the FCR FR-9 series.

Polyester Composite Tapes

Provide ultra-high tensile strength with outstanding resistance to solvents and mineral coils. The FCR #239 and #320 Polyester Film with Reinforced Glass Filament tapes are engineered for use as a construction tape to make for easy winding of oil filled distribution and power transformers that use thick fiber and pressboard insulation, heavy-gauge aluminum strip low-voltage winding, and heavy magnet wire. Reinforced tapes offer high dielectric strength of polyester film and high tensile strength of glass cloth, with lower cost than glass cloth tapes. Application temperatures up to 130 C.

Kapton Tapes

Kapton (Polyimide) Discs for Electronics: Kapton (Polyimide) is made from 1 mil Polyimide film with 1.5 mils of silicone adhesive, and can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees F / 260 degrees C. These disks are also available in 2 mil Polyimide, please inquire.

Kapton Film: The ultimate in electrical insulating tapes. Kapton film is ideally suited to continuous high temperature operating conditions. FCR offers the #95, 1 mil Kapton Tape with a high temperature silicone adhesive that is recommended for use as ground, barrier, and phase insulation in small, high-performance torridal coils and high frequency motors. Also used in cross-over insulation and outer protective wraps on small bobbin wound coils. Kapton tapes are thin and conformable, with outstanding puncture, tear and abrasion resistance at elevated tempertures. Approved temperatures up to 180 C and flame retardant.

Glass Cloth Tapes

Offer excellent conformability and superior solvent resistance. Glass cloth tapes offer very high temperature ratings and tensile strength. Glass cloth tapes are recommended for use in high temperature cable harnesses and connection insulating applications. The #269 and #451 Glass Cloth Tapes from FCR provide very high dielectric strength, and good puncture r.. resistance. The #269 Glass Cloth/Silicone Adhesive is our highest thermal rated glass cloth tape which is ideal for high temperature applications wherever superior solvent resistance and flame retardancy is required. Approved for temperatures up to 180 C.
