Abstract

For tying a bundle of electrical conductors, a tape has a short section of adhesive on one side at one end, a longer section of adhesive on the same side at the other end, and a non-adhesive section between the ends. Manufacturing personnel connect the short adhesive section of the tape in a simple loop about just one of the conductors. The tape is long enough to encircle the bundle by more than one complete turn, and the free end of the tape is looped around the bundle in the direction that permits the long adhesive section to be attached to the outwardly facing surface of the tape. Thus, except for the conductor within the small loop, none of the conductors is attached to the tape, and the conductors are free to move longitudinally within the tie when the bundle is flexed.

Tie For Conductor Bundle With Partially Sticky Tape on Supply Reel

For tying a bundle of electrical conductors, a tape has a short section of adhesive on one side at one end, a longer section of adhesive on the same side at the other end, and a non-adhesive section between the ends. Manufacturing personnel connect the short adhesive section of the tape in a simple loop about just one of the conductors. The tape is long enough to encircle the bundle by more than one complete turn, and the free end of the tape is looped around the bundle in the direction that permits the long adhesive section to be attached to the outwardly facing surface of the tape. Thus, except for the conductor within the small loop, none of the conductors is attached to the tape, and the conductors are free to move longitudinally within the tie when the bundle is flexed. The non-adhesive side of the tape is printed to identify the wire bundle, for example, by simple numerals. The tape is dispensed from a hand held reel.

In an alternative tie, the tape does not have the small section of adhesive at one end but has a non-adhesive section that is wrapped around the bundle in contact with the conductors.
