Overview

Our Raychem HVBT High Voltage Busbar Insulation Tape is designed to combine the integrity of a heat shrink tubing with the versatility of wraparound products. This is quick and easy to install. Upon application of heat, the tapes shrink and the adhesive lining melts, amalgamating the overlapping layers to produce a complete lap to lap seal. A single layer of the high voltage busbar insulation tape, two-thirds overlapped, will provide AC voltage withstand (flashover protection) to at least 17.5 kV increasing to 36 kV if a second layer is applied.

Although the busbar insulation tape will adhere to itself and other insulating materials, it will not adhere to metal or porcelain, allowing easy removal for maintenance. This tape offers a simple and effective solution to the problems of retrofit insulation of busbars, particularly where existing equipment cannot be dismantled. It can be used for indoor and outdoor applications and are easily installed over a wide variety of shapes, including complex connections.
