Aluminum carriers are a versatile foil tape carrier, and offers corrosion resistance, conductivity, durability, and reflectance. Foil tapes utilize a metal-foil backing which contributes to the tape’s malleable, conductive, and rugged characteristics. This type of adhesive tape is properly employed in sealing, shielding, grounding, and resistance applications. Foil tapes cling to surfaces via a durable, pressure sensitive adhesive. These tapes find significance in the aerospace, metal finishing, appliance, and automotive industries. Foil tapes are primarily for instances of electric or thermal conducting and shielding. Shielding tape with a conductive adhesive is used for electromagnetic interference shielding, grounding, and static charge. Foil tapes most commonly commission an acrylic adhesive that can be conductive or non-conductive. Their foil carriers offer UV protection, and are typically temperature resistant as well. Aluminum tape is common for HVAC sealing and repair. HVAC tape is a foil tape, typically aluminum in construction with an acrylic adhesive, that is explicitly meant to create air-tight seals in duct work and ventilation systems. This tape incorporates temperature resistance and a flexible bond. Closely related to HVAC tape is refrigeration tape, which holds a bond in very low temperatures. An electrically conductive adhesive is a glue that is primarily used for electronics. The electric conductivity is caused by a component that makes ca. 80% of the total mass of an electrically conductive adhesive. This conductive component is suspended in a sticky component that holds the electrically conductive adhesive together. The particles of the conductive component are in contact to each other and in this way make electric current possible.
