Foil-Free Edge Laminates



Typical Applications

Shielding of twisted pairs in multi-pair, multi-conductor cables such as process control, computer or instrumentation cables.

Construction


Foil free edge tapes offer a film/film/foil construction with a wider, thicker top film layer which overlaps the foil, providing non-conductive, foil free edges.

Standard foil free edge laminates are constructed with aluminum foil and polyester film.

General Features/Benefits


Foil free film edge provides isolation between pairs, preventing shield-to-shield shorts and eliminating the need for a polyester overwrap.

Saves cost by eliminating the need to inventory two varieties of tape.

Selecting the product that's right for you:
    • Foil free edge tapes are differentiated primarily by the thicknesses of the films. Thicker film substrates allow for higher dielectric and tensile strengths.
    • Each tape may be specified with foil free edges on one or both sides of varying widths.
    • Variety of colors available for pair identification
