Contech's Poly-Flex SFT-150 Self-Fusing
Tape protects irregular adapters such as Housing-to-Housing
Coupling Connectors and Right Angle Connectors.
It can also be used to repair damaged or abraded cable jackets
without disconnecting or interrupting services to your customers. The Poly-Flex
SFT-150 Self-Fusing Tape is a synthetic rubber compound formulated to
bond to itself. As you stretch the tape, its memory will attempt to
return to its original unstressed position, applying constant pressure
onto itself. As it applies this pressure, it begins an immediate bonding
process that unifies it into one solid piece. However, unlike other
tapes, Poly-Flex will not become unusable if it is touched to itself.
(1) Begin by removing only enough tape from the roll to cover the connector,
adapter and/or damaged cable area. Tear across the tape, and remove
the attached white backing paper.
(2) Hold the tape end down on the object to be covered with your fingers
and while stretching the tape with your other hand, make
one complete revolution and bring the tape firmly onto itself.
(3) Wrap the tape around the unit or area in a half-lap fashion,
pulling hard and stretching the tape, utilizing the maximum
stretch capability of the tape.
(4) When you have reached the other end of the end of the area to be
sealed, reverse direction, and travel half way back. Break off any excess
tape. Mash and blend the tape end firmly onto itself. Your sealing tape
application is now complete.
