What is Semi-Conductive Tape?
Semi-Conductive Tape is an interesting tape. It can conduct electricity in stretchable direction, and maintain conductivity after stretched. It does not conduct electricity vertically, and that is why we call it "semi" conductive.
I Thought All The Tapes Are Supposed To Be Insulated. Why Make Tape Conductive?
Most of tapes do, however, this Semi-Conductive Tape is not the common tape you would see at home. A semi-conductive tape is designed specifically to work with coaxial cables in the electric power and telecom industry. You do not have chance to use such tape in your daily life.
OK, So What Does This Semi-Conductive Tape Do?
Repairing and splicing coaxial cables. As some of you may know, the coaxial cable used to conduct Alternating Current has a multi-layer structure. This structure has a conductive outer sheath to provide electromagnetic shielding. Semi-Conductive Tape is used as a replacement of the coaxial cable's outer sheath in case the sheath is broken. Moreover, when two coaxial cable are spliced, they must be wrapped with the semi-conductive tape to offer shielding for their joints.
What Is The Advantage Of 3M Semi-Conductive Tape?
Common semi-conductive tape are made of conductive cloth and adhesive layer, however, 3M's patented semi-conductive tape uses special conductive rubber that is self-fusing. The 3M semi-conductive rubber tape will not leave any glue mark and is very easy to remove.
Is There Anything Noteworthy Of This Special Semi-Conductive Tape?
Be very careful NOT TO MIX UP WITH OTHER TAPES. This tape is for repairing coaxial cable ONLY and MUST NOT BE USED AS INSULATION.
