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.
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 (Polyimide) Discs for Electronics:
is made from 1 mil Polyimide film with 1.5 mils of silicone adhesive, and
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
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.
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.
