Electrical tape may appear to be just like any other kind of tape, but it has very distinct and significant benefits that make it unique. Made from plastic, vinyl or fiberglass cloth, this elastic tape is useful for a variety of different jobs and projects.
Electrical tape is a pressure-sensitive tape used to insulate materials that conduct electricity, specifically electrical wires. It stops the electrical current from accidentally passing to other wires, which could create a short or even start an electrical fire. Additionally, it prevents possible electrocution if the live wires are touched.
