FAA FAR 25.853 Appendix F Meeting Horizontal & Vertical Burn Rate Limits Silicone Rubber Self Fusing Tapes


500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

FlameShieldä rectangular and triangular profile tapes meeting the FAA FAR 25.853 burn rate limit specification are used for a variety of critical electrical wiring and cable splicing and protection jobs.  Especially suited for aviation and marine environments, as well as outdoor weathering environments.

The tape has no adhesive, but sticks to itself (self-fuses or self amalgamating) when stretched and wrapped onto itself.  The tapes starts curing within minutes, and after several hours cannot be unwound or removed without using a sharp knife or blade.  This tape makes a waterproof, weatherproof and air tight protection.

This tape is only available in a brown color as a result of the flame retardant additives.  The triangular tape has a guideline stripe in the center which aids in achieving a 50% spiral wrap.  Triangular tapes provide a smooth surface on spiral wrapping, preventing the tape wrap area from snagging when pulling a wire or cable through a bundle or over objects or openings, and also provides a uniform dielectric along the length of the wrap.

Provides superior electrical insulation with a minimum of 300 volts per mil (.001") of tape thickness at 365°F / 180°C. A 20mil tape therefore provides 6000 volts per wrap of insulation value.  Meets UL 94-V0.

This tape is also used to wrap hydraulic connections and to make vibration resistant bumpers and spacers for wiring, cable, hose, pipes and lines. This tape is used to wrap and hold insulation in place on hot air ducts. Makes an in-situ bushing for protecting wiring at the backshell clamp.
