When it comes to electrical work, it is more important than ever to ensure work is done properly and of high quality standards. While electrical tape can be a great adhesive product with insulating and high tensile strength properties, using a standard black can sometimes be a hindrance in knowing what wires have needed repair in the past. Using a brightly colored electrical tape can help with visibility in differentiating wires in a color coding system but it can also help to instantly know which wires have needed individual attention in the past.
The following are some brightly colored electrical tape products for color coding purposes:
