  • Best Practices for 3M 130C

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Application

      This tape should be applied in successive half-lapped level wound layers until desired build-up is reached. It should be applied like any rubber tape

      that is, the side of the tape wrapped inside the roll should be applied outside on the splice (tacky side up). This will help prevent the roll from getting progressively further away from the work area.

      To eliminate voids in critical areas, highly elongate 130C tape. Stretch tape in critical areas just short of the breaking point

      doing so will not alter its physical or electrical properties. In less critical areas, less elongation may be used. The tape should be stretched to a minimum of 3/4 its original width. Always attempt to half-lap to produce a uniform buildup. When using 130C tape for splicing cable above 15 kV, always highly elongate the tape throughout the entire splice. Techniques for proper usage of 130C tape are contained in standard and special prints available though the “3M System for Splicing and Terminating” program. These are available through the local 3M Electrical Products Division representative.
