Garmin 249-00114-00 Silicone Rubber Self Fusing Electrical Tape
500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
FlameShieldä Garmin 249-00114 equvalent silicone rubber self-fusing tape meets A-A-59163 and Mil-I-46852 specification for use in avionics wiring. Popular for protecting wiring at the backshell clamp.
The 249-00114 tape has no adhesive, but sticks to itself (self-fuses or self amalgamating) when stretched and wrapped onto itself. The tape 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. 249-00114 tape is used to protect wiring at the backsheel clamp by forming a custom sized isolation bushing.
The standard 249-00114 tape is oxide-red in color, but black is also available. Other colors available.
249-00114 FlameShieldä tape 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.
249-00114 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.
