What is Semi-Conductive Nylon Tape and How is it Made?
Semi-conductive nylon tape is a specialized type of tape made from nylon-based fibers that are coated on both sides with a semi-conductive compound. The compound has uniform electrical properties and provides good strength and semi-conductive properties to the tape. This type of tape is used as a shielding layer between the conductor and insulating layer in medium and high voltage power cables. The manufacturing process involves coating the nylon-based fibers with the semi-conductive compound and then winding them onto a spool for later use.
