The heating element is multi-strand resistance wire, braided with AMOX™ yarn and knitted into the serpentine shape to minimize thermal shock and tensile stress from expansion and contraction. The side-by-side wire configuration permits the lead wires to be on one end. The Duo-Tape®
configuration is the most popular of all our flexible elements.
Heavy AMOX™ Overbraid Cover
The Heavy Insulated Tapes have a flexible, braided sleeving over the heating element to provide additional dielectric strength for application on conductive surfaces (use directly on metal). Heavy Duo-Tapes®
will wrap around small 3/8” to ¼” (8mm to 6mm) tubing. Heat additives provide capability to 1400°F (760°C).
Molded Plug Option (120V)
do not include a power plug. 120V tapes may be ordered with the optional molded plug (-MP). No power plug option is available for 240V tapes. Commercially available connectors may be installed for the customer or sourced locally. Duo-Tapes®
do not utilize a grounding circuit and provide a two wire connection.
For Earth Ground Leakage protection a circuit protector (30ma GFCI) is recommended.
