Intertape® – Electrical adhesive tapes Intertape® 4237

Intertape® 4237 is a glass filament polyester tape with acrylate adhesive.

High tensile strength glass filaments and conformable PET film coating with an aggressive adhesive for a variety of heavy duty insulating, banding and holding applications. 1.0 mil polyester film provides puncture, edge tear and abrasion resistance. Specially designed and intended for use in oil-filled transformers. Once thermoset, the acrylic adhesive offers superior resistance to chemicals, solvents and aging in addition to excellent dielectric strength and insulation resistance.
