HVBT - High Voltage Bus Tape


High Voltage Bus Tape

     This is yet another TE product that we keep in stock available for same day shipping.  HVBT is a high voltage, self-amalgamating tape for round and rectangular bus bars.

     Now, before we get started I'd like to talk about this sticker:
high voltage tape
Now, that's an important sticker
     This is one of the most important stickers I've ever seen on a product.  This is not one of those stickers that tells you "don't remove this tag from the mattress" -- and this is not one of those stickers that says "do not stick your fingers in the blender while it is running."  This sticker tells you something IMPORTANT.   It is a little unusual in most of the heat shrink world for a product to be rolled adhesive side out and there not be a release paper of some kind -- but that is the case for the HVBT.  Pay attention to that sticker or your product is not going to install or work properly.  Good job Raychem for being as clear as possible.

     The HVBT is spiral wrapped around the busbar, applying some amount of heat along the way to prevent ending up with multiple layers of heat shrink that do not shrink because they are insulated by too many outer layers of HVBT.

     HVBT is sold in standard quantities of 4 rolls.  Rolls are 25 feet long.  We can (on occasion) break standard box quantities if necessary, so don't be afraid to ask if you have a smaller requirement than 100 feet of material.

     Tyco Electronics has an excellent installation video that shows just how easy this product is to install.  You can see it below:
