Standard LD Tapes

In coaxial cable designs, the low dielectric constant and dissipation factor contribute to lower signal loss (insertion loss or attenuation). The low dielectric constant also contributes for higher velocity of propagation. In addition, the nature of the ePTFE allows for greater flexibility on the cable construction.

The high mechanical properties helps cable manufacturers to improve efficiency in their production process, by enabling faster wrapping speeds.

As a binder tape in cable bundles, its low weight and excellent conformability adds minimal mass and volume to the cable construction.
