Friction tape is one of the oldest known electrical tapes. It was designed to replace the cotton jacketing used in early cable and wire assemblies. It is a simple construction of cotton cloth impregnated with a tacky, rubber compound that provides good adhesion to all types of surfaces. These tapes provide excellent protection against abrasion and penetration of wires, cables and splices.
