Specification – 3M Scotch 2220 Mastic Tape

Scotch 2220 tape, manufactured by 3M Electrical, is a composite of an all-weather polyvinyl chloride (PVC) backing and a thick rubber based, pressure-sensitive adhesive. The 3M Scotch tape must be applicable at temperatures ranging from -18°C (ODF) to 38°C (100°F) without loss of physical or electrical properties.

The Scotch tape must not degrade when exposed to various indoor or outdoor environments. It must also be compatible with all synthetic cable insulations and jointing compounds. When used in junction boxes, cable trays or gutters, connectors shall be over wrapped with at least one-half lapped layer of glass cloth tape or varnished cambric tape before applying the product. Or, the entire product build-up shall be over wrapped with two half-lapped layers of an adhesive-coated cloth tape.
