Modern multifunctional material - tape keeper
Keeper Ribbon - what is it? On this question you will give a detailed answer to any electrical installer. After all, electrical work is the main area of application of this material.
What is the keeper's tape made from?
Modern material of a wide field of application -kipernaya tape - is a textile strip of cloth with a width of 8-50 mm made of cotton yarn. Significantly less often, the tape is made of polyester, lavsan or silk.
There are several types of cypernal tape. The material differs mainly in the form of weaving (twill or diagonal) and the thickness of the thread.
Tape kypernaya very dense and strong enoughIn order to be used in pulling the cable insulation or transformer winding. It is in electrical installation works that this material has found the widest application. It performs here insulating, pulling and bandaging functions.
Manufacture of keeper tape
Today we consider cottonThe braids are made mainly by a combined method: using cotton and polyester. This makes the material more durable and wear-resistant. The tape produced in a combined way is more resistant to the effects of bright light, temperature and moisture changes. In addition, it is this material that can withstand the rigors of hard cleaning.
Produced a tape kipper on a specialtape equipment that can be shuttle or shuttleless. The material is not only white, but also bright enough colors.
To make a ribbon, like any othermaterial, according to the state standard. So what is the GOST for this? Tape kipernaya is made in strict accordance with the technical conditions for the production of tapes for the electrical industry (GOST 4514-78). It is in this document that everything is spelled out - from the appearance of the material to the methods of its packaging, transportation and storage.
According to the standard, the keeper's tape must havethickness 0.35-0.40 mm and made up to a width of 50 mm. Also in the GOST strictly prescribed physical and mathematical indicators, which must correspond to the material released by the enterprise. So, for example, the manufactured keeper tape should withstand a certain breaking load.
The released ribbon undergoes mandatory quality control. The appearance of the material is evaluated and its compliance with the established standards is checked.
Where is the cyber tape used?
As already mentioned above, the main area of application of the material is electrical work. But this sphere is not the only one.
Keeper tape is used in productionuniforms, overalls and equipment for military enterprises. Also, it is this material that often edges the seams of outer clothing. The textile industry has long appreciated the advantages of this durable material, where it is widely used today. In addition to all of the above, cyper tape is used in the manufacture of bags, backpacks and even headdresses.
The printing and paper industries did not stand aside. From the keeper's tape ribbon ribbons are made for paper, use this material in bookbinding.
Another area of application is packaging materials(boxes and various bundles). Strong cotton thread is ideal for this, because knotted knots from such a tape do not slip and do not weaken. It should also be noted that, despite its "steel" strength, the kipernaya tape is an elastic and soft material, so it does not spoil the appearance and integrity of the package.
And gardeners and gardeners have found their application to the tape: they often tie up plants, because the material is strong enough, resistant to moisture and sun, long does not lose its operational qualities.
