There are a few things:
It has a pressure sensitive adhesive. This is different that typical electrical tape.
It is self-extinguishing (in under 2 seconds).
When unwound from the roll, will have no tendancy to curl.
Adhesive won't transfer to the adjacent layer when unwound at 24ft./min.
Various adhesion requirements to PVC and polyethelene.
Some of the testing certification requirements include such things as:
Oven Age: Hang 153mm (6") length of tape in circulating oven at 130 degrees C (266 degrees F) for 24 hours. Tape shall not melt or exhibit any adverse effects.
These are just a few of the items outlined in the specs this product must meet.
Although I've not yet seen this product, it should also have a more matte finish than electrical tape. This is probably only important to the REALLY anal guys like me
