TYT200-1 ColeFlex Cole-Pak Self Fusing "No Heat" Silicone Tape
365°F / 180°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
FlameShieldä TYT200-1 silicone rubber self-fusing compression tapes meet many MIL and proprietary specifications (such as MIL-I-46852 and AA-59163) and are used for a variety of critical electrical wiring and cable splicing and protection jobs. Especially suited for aviation and marine environments, as well as outdoor weathering environments.
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.
These tapes may be either red or black although some are other colors such as white, green, blue. Most Type II tapes have a center guideline.
The guideline stripe in the center which aids in achieving a 50% spiral wrap and provides a smooth surface on spiral wrapping, preventing the tape wrap area from snagging when pulling a wire or cable through a bundle or over objects or openings.
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.
