Fire & Arc Proof Tapes
Fire & Arc Proof Tapes are designed to protect most types of electrical cables from fault arc-generated heat and flames of nearby cable failures. These elastomeric tapes are formulated to generate a thick, insulating charred buildup when exposed to high temperatures. The insulating charred buildup protects wrapped cables and cable accessories from the fault arc-generated heat and flames of cable failures within approximately 20 inches until limiting devices can interrupt the faulted circuit.
One half-lap wrap provides adequate protection for most installations. However, additional wraps can be applied, if conditions warrant, without requiring a reduction in conductor loads.
