3M
Vinyl Electrical Tapes
When you’re working to deliver power to your customers,
your supplies are your lifeline. That’s even more true when
you’re faced with difficult conditions on the job, like harsh
environments or cold temperatures. You need tapes that
can stand up to all that nature throws at you – so you can
be ready for anything.
Our family of Scotch
®
Professional Grade Vinyl Electrical
Tapes are designed to work reliably in a wide range of
conditions. That means our backings and adhesives are
rigorously tested to stand up to tough challenges, so they
stretch, stick, stay stuck – and stand up in heavy duty and
industrial installations, extreme cold and heat, as well as
moist or corrosive environments.
And because these are the only vinyl electrical tapes made
in the USA* and supported globally by exceptional local
service, you have peace of mind that the tapes
you rely on will be available for those critical projects,
important installations that need to last, and when
unexpected weather increases the need for maintenance
and repair of critical electrical systems.

The key to selecting the right electrical tape for your application.
There are some basic rules to follow when you’re selecting electrical tape.
Vinyl backed tapes have a strong, flexible, abrasion resistant PVC backing which provide a barrier
from moisture and corrosive elements. They are often the first and most economical choice for
primary and secondary insulation.
Mastic tapes offer excellent adhesion and sealing characteristics to metals, rubbers, synthetic cable
insulations and jackets. They provide UV resistance and are designed for outdoor conditions because
they quickly and easily resist moisture.
Rubber tapes are designed for use in splicing and terminating wires and cables with options rated
up to 69kV. They have excellent physical and electrical properties and are ideal for adding moisture
protection and padding to electrical connections and cables.
3M offers more than just vinyl electrical tapes. In fact, the portfolio of 3M electrical tapes includes full lines of mastic
and rubber tapes designed to help you work efficiently and safely. No matter the job, there is a 3M tape for you.
