Adhesive tape is used to connect two or more unconnected objects together through bonding. It can be seen everywhere in our lives, and it is also a regular item of life. There are many types of tape, such as scotch tape and insulating tape. Can they be used to repair wires?
It is very dangerous to repair broken wires with scotch tape. Transparent tape has a little insulation effect. On the contrary, the adhesive on the scotch tape has great hidden dangers. There may be a short circuit, fire, or burn out the circuit and equipment, which may seriously endanger the human body.
If the circuit is damaged, it is recommended to use insulating electrical tape when repairing by yourself. It has good insulation properties, pressure resistance and weather resistance, which can prevent electric shocks from electric wires and achieve the purpose of insulation.
The laying of switch lines is becoming more and more complex, including downhills, internal walls and baffles, wetlands or water. If the incorrect insulating tape is used, it will cause leakage and seriously endanger people’s lives. The joints should be bound firmly and smoothly, otherwise before cutting the threads. First use pliers to gently press, then go around the pressed area, and then swing up and down to cut off the knots intimately at the joints. If the connection is in a dry state, first wrap two layers with insulating colored tape, then wrap two layers with plastic tape, and then wrap two to three layers with insulating self-adhesive tape.
The above is how to repair wires with tape, which can be used as a reference when buying or using. With the advancement of technology, there are more and more types of tape, and the choice should be based on its use.
