Product Information
PROTECO-TAPE products are directly wrapped around wires, cables or cable racks. Our tape products help prevent flame spread and protects important equipment from fire. The tape provides a flame retardant protective layer with advanced fire retardancy serving to help suppress ignition and flame spreading. Our tapes help limit smoke emission and are halogen-free, which helps reduce damage expansion caused by smoke generation during a cable fire. PROTECO-TAPE sticks well to cable, is flexible, and follows the thermal expansion and contraction of the cable it protects without reducing the allowable current of the cable.
