PVC Insulation Tape Manufacturing.

PVC Insulation Tape Manufacturing: Pressure sensitive PVC insulation Tape is popular as an electrical insulation material. Insulation tapes are water, oil and temperature resistant. Adhesives are composed of a rubbery type elastomeric combined with a liquid or solid resin pacifier component. The rheological properties of the adhesive can be altered by the addition of fillers. Antioxidants are used to stabilize the adhesive against oxidation, and light and heat degradation.

Registration & License: Apply for following registration and licenses from different Government authority.

Registration with ROC, Apply for Udyog Aadhaar MSME registration.
Apply for Trade License from local Municipal authority. VAT Registration, Obtain BIS Certification.
Factory License for large scale manufacturing operation.

No major pollution problem associated with this except for disposal of waste which should be managed appropriately. Take “No Objection Certificate” from the State Pollution Control Board.

Finance for PVC Insulation Tape Manufacturing Business:
You will need to invest at least 30% of total project cost as owner’s allocation. Otherwise for fixed capital investment, you can apply term loan and for working capital assistance.

Machinery & Raw Material: One meter working width Adhesive Coating Plant for PVC Tapes consisting of the following:

Unwinder for Primary The Web with tension control.

Rotogravure Printing unit, Drying Tunnel – 60 ft. length Chilling Roll/Surface Support Roll, Pneumatic/Hydraulic web aligner Dancing Roller, Accumulator, Re winder, A.C. & D.C. Motors, Control cabinets, Air Blowers with Temperature Controllers etc.

Slicing machine complete with 3 HP Motor, Starter & Circular Knives.
Attritor cum Emulsifier 300 Lit. capacity with 5 HP A.C. Motor.
13″ X 26″ Three Roll Mass Grinding machine with 15 HP Motor, Gear Box & Starter. Testing and lab equipment.

The major required raw material is PVC film-100. Procure rubber based adhesive, core for winding, and packaging consumables.

PVC Insulation Tape Production Process:
Insulation Tapes from PVC film rolls procured from the market. However, the manufacturing process essentially consists of the following major operations. Manufacturing of the adhesive mass, Application of primer and adhesive coating to the PVC film.

Drying of the adhesive coating at the required temperature. Cutting the film rolls into tapes of required width. The required length of the finished tapes are wound on cores.

Quality parameters depend on the following aspects:
Stickiness of tape, Good ‘stitching’, Adhesive should not spread due to heat. Long lasting adhesion, water, weather and temperature resistant. Also resistant to acids, alkalis, oils, greases etc.
