Hot Met Tape

Weather proofing adhesive Tapes

TE's Raychem hot-melt tape seals molded parts and helps prevents debris and water from entering the backshell or connector. The adhesive is easy to install, flows when heated and hardens when cooled.

Seal boots and cable entry seals tight with tape. Hot-melt thermoplastic pre-coat adhesive is designed for use with TE's Raychem heavy-duty boots and cable entry seals. It is suitable for bonding to various cable jacket substrates including polyethylene, PVC, polychloroprene, and metals such as steel and aluminum. It is available in a tape form with no shelf life expiration date. Various tapes are available for different temperature applications.

Substrate Preparation

Notes and Caution
  • Avoid contamination of the prepared surface. If using primer, apply it according to the manufacturer's instructions and allow it to dry.
  • Epoxy adhesives may cause skin and eye irritation. Be sure to observe the handling instructions.
  • When using hot melt adhesives on substrates with high heat sink capacity (such as connector backshells), preheat the substrate until it is hot to touch, then apply the adhesive tape and shrink the molded part in place.
  • The use of cleaning solvent is described in the preparation of various components for adhesive bonding. Please observe the solvent manufacturer’s safety recommendations. 
  • Several Raychem epoxy adhesives and solvent base primers are also described in some cases. 
  • For specific handling precautions, please consult the appropriate Raychem material safety data sheet for the adhesive being used.
