Low Shrinkage LD Tapes

In addition to the permeability (dielectric constant) and dissipation factor of the standard version, the Low Shrinkage low density (ePTFE) tapes maintains its dimensions when cables are subjected to high temperature, maintaining contact with the end connector and preventing excess signal loss.

Also, it has enhanced strength enabling increasing wrapping speeds. The trade off is a slightly lower elongation.
