With my recent work with jointing Underground cables, I have found that the S-A tape is less than what it used to be, adhesion-wise.
I'm not willing to name brands here, but one of the more prevalent brands do thier manufacturing in Brazil.
We have 1/2", 1" and 1 1/2" tapes here for HV work.
But the quality is just not the same.
What do you guys think?.
Maybe it is just me!.
