Amphenol Connector Backshell Clamp Isolation Tape/Bushing
500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
FlameShieldä Amphenol connector backshell clamp isolation tape (Garmin 249-00114 equivalent) is a silicone rubber self-fusing tape meeting A-A-59163 and Mil-I-46852 specifications. The tape is used to form bushings to aid in strain relief. Popular for use in avionics and marine wiring.
The tape has no adhesive, but sticks to itself (self-fuses or self amalgamating) when stretched and wrapped onto itself. The tapes starts curing within minutes, and after several hours cannot be unwound or removed without using a sharp knife or blade. This tape makes a waterproof, weatherproof and air tight protection.
This tape is available in almost any color, but oxide-red and black are the most common.
Amphenol FlameShieldTM tapes meeting A-A-59163 and Mil-I-46852 provide superior electrical insulation with a minimum of 300 volts per mil (.001") of tape thickness at 365°F / 180°C. A 20mil tape therefore provides 6000 volts per wrap of insulation value.
This tape is also used to wrap hydraulic connections and to make vibration resistant bumpers and spacers for wiring, cable, hose, pipes and lines. This tape is used to wrap and hold insulation in place on hot air ducts.
