  1. insulating tape

    Insulating tape, also known as electrical tape, is a type of pressure-sensitive adhesive tape used to insulate electrical wires and other materials that conduct electricity. It is made from material that does not conduct electricity, typically vinyl or plastic. This tape can resist high temperatures, abrasion, moisture, and can prevent electrical shocks, thus plays a crucial role in ensuring safety in electrical work.
