INSRED – RED Insulation Tape

Insulation Tape is is a safety tape for wires, used to cover and insulate a broad range of cables, wires and other materials that conduct electricity. It’s often referred to as electrical tape (or thermal insulation) tape, and its uses in workplace and home settings are widespread.

Insulation tapes come in an array of widths and thicknesses for various different applications, as well as in a selection of colours and materials for optimal insulating properties and accurate colour-coding of various wires for safety purposes.

It must act as an effective insulator against electricity, protecting circuitry and users by not conducting current easily. Must be heat-resistant and fireproof to a reasonable degree for the application it’s being used in. Must be flexible, user-friendly and easy to apply to a range of wires, circuits and connections (often in relatively tight spaces).


Insulation tape is most commonly used in DIY applications for making repairs and joins to smaller wires. As we’ll outline in more detail below, it should not be used for major repairs to very badly damaged wires, or on its own for creating permanent connections in junction boxes, light switches, or wiring outlets. In these sorts of high-demand, potentially high-temperature environments, insulating tape should only be used in conjunction with purpose-made wire nuts and other connector tools for a safer and more secure fix. Furthermore, electrical tape shouldn’t be used as a standalone repair for damaged or unspliced wires in close proximity to soft furnishings or other flammable materials.
