Glass Mica Cable Tape (GMCAB)

General Details
Ruby Mica® GMCAB Tape is a lamination of uncalcined phlogopite/muscovite mica paper with a glass cloth. A high thermal-grade silicone resin is used as a binder, making it a class ‘H’ insulation product.

APPLICATION

Glass Mica Cable Tapes impart fire-resistant properties to the electric cables and are suitable for power and control cables, instrumentation and signaling cables. Circuit-integrity is ensured by these tough and resilient FRLS cable tapes during fire and in high-temperature environments up to 950°C. Due to their superior flexibility and tensile strength, all our GMCAB / GMPCAB tapes are high-speed taping machine-compatible. The product is compliant to IEC 60371-3-8.
