Adhesive type
Acrylic
Acrylic adhesive resists to varnish solvents even
if not fully cured. The acrylic offers a high
ageing resistance until 155C in use.
Natural rubber adhesive
Natural rubber adhesive requires lowest temperature cure cycle to reach its maximum
performance but is limited at 130C for continuous use.

Silicone adhesive
Silicone adhesive is used when extremely high
temperature is required and up to 180C.
The heat cycle for this adhesive is higher and
longer.
Thermosetting
Having the property to perform in a higher
bonding when heated or cured.
Flame retardant
The adhesive complies with non burning
properties.

Thermosetting cycles
For thermosetting acrylic and
rubber adhesives
at 120C (250F): 3 hours
at 130C (275F): 2 hours
at 150C (300F): 1 hour

For thermosetting silicone adhesives


at 260C (500F): 2 hours
24 hours recommended for maximum
resistance to solvent

Storage conditions
For the best shelf life, storage temperature
should be between 15C to 25C Relative
Humidity: 50 % ( 30 %)

Adhesive Tapes for Electrical Insulation

The Appropriate Solution


Polyimide films
An excellent choice for high temperature insulation and processing applications
thanks to:
very high heat resistance (between 120C and 350 for short periods)
high dielectric strength
Examples: Intertape 4118, Isotape 4428 PV3, Intertape 4429, Intertape 51579
Speciality
T
 he unique characteristics of these tapes make them extremely suitable for high
voltage insulation applications.
Zone coating (4564) allows complete impregnation of the varnish.
A
 n innovative backing (51600 PV3) provides unique properties to fulfil
application requirements of new generations of coils.
Polyester reinforced glass filament
These tapes are mainly compatible with insulation oil for immersed transformers. An
excellent choice for heavy duty bundling insulation thanks to:
high tensile strength with glass filament
high dielectric properties from the polyester film
Examples: Intertape 4238, Intertape 51597, Intertape 51599 PV1
Glass cloths
Flexibility and conformability are key features of this product group.
H
 igh heat resistance and tensile strength of the glass cloth fulfil many electrical
insulation application requirements.
Examples: Intertape 461FR, Intertape 4616, Intertape 4617, Intertape 4618,
Isotape 4627, Isotape 4637PV3, Isotape 4638 PV3, Intertape 54562
Polyester laminates
Both types of polyester laminates offer unique properties.
Paper/Polyester offers bulk, stiffness and is hand tearable.
Polyester/Non-woven offers excellent puncture resistance and conformability.
Higher temperature performance with acrylic adhesives.
Examples: Intertape 4426, Isotape 51044PV3 Intertape 51595, Intertape 51596,
Isotape 54354
Polyester films
E
 xcellent combination of qualities: high insulation properties and high dielectric
strength at low thickness (25 ).
A
 crylic adhesives enhance these films by giving the products good chemical and
solvent resistance.
Some polyester films are UL Flame Retardant.
Examples: Isotape 50501, Intertape 51587, Intertape 51588, Intertape 51594,
Intertape 54108, Intertape 54113, Isotape 51350PV3, Isotape 51350PV3-2,
Intertape 51589
