KELMAPLAST cable protection tapes protect underground cables and pipes from mechanical damage perfectly, simply and permanently.

These ecofriendly polyethylene products are the alternative to protective covers and cover plates and come with a long list of advantages. Simply unreeled in the trench, they save time and money and keep the filling material separate from the sand bed, thus preventing stones and gravel from working their way in and also displacement from occurring during compaction. The tapes can be walked on both while they are being laid and dug up again, and their smooth surface also makes guiding the excavator bucket easier.

KELMAPLAST cable protection tapes are also resistant to all influences in the ground and their permanently legible print permit clear identification of both the type of utility line and its owner. Perforations allow humidity to pass through, thus preventing any undesirable build-up of heat.

The tape is available in thicknesses of 0.25 mm to 4 mm with a tolerance of ±5 %. The reel lengths of between 20 m and 100 m are adjusted to a maximum weight of 30 kg with a tolerance of ± 0,5 m in accordance with regulations.

KELMAPLAST Cable Protection Tape No 08 – in accordance with DIN 54841-5

This particular tape is suitable for the most common areas of application and, coming in thicknesses of between 1.5 mm and 4 mm, it also passes the mandatory dart drop impact test, which simulates the damage potentially caused by spades, pickaxes and sharp-edged filling material.

KELMAPLAST Cable Protection Tape No 02 – Fabric Reinforced

The “muscleman” among KELMAPLAST cable protection tapes – with fabric reinforcement for tear resistance. Despite being relatively thin – at a thickness of between .025 and 0.35 mm – this option has virtually the same technical and chemical properties as cable protection tape no 09. Thanks to its extreme flexibility, it is also more than easy to lay.

Technical features

Fabric: 200/25 scrim (polyester)
Elongation: ≥ 200 %
Tensile strength in accordance with DIN EN ISO 527-2: ≥ 20 N/mm²
Temperature stability: -20 °C to +70 °C

Chemical stability

No change in colour after 24 hours of exposure to:
25 % nitric acid
20 % sodium carbonate solution
20 % ammonium iron sulphate
