Copper foil tape comes in two forms– with conductive adhesive and with non-conductive adhesive. Copper tape with non-conductive adhesive is more common. For example you can get it at your local hardware store in the gardening section– it’s used to keep snails and slugs out of gardens. Copper tape refers to an adhesive-backed copper tape. Copper tape can be found at most hardware and gardening stores and sometimes electronic stores. Copper tape is used to keep slugs and snails out of certain areas in gardens, potted plants, and trunks of fruit trees, and other trees and shrubs. Conductive Copper foil acrylic tape is a highly heat resistant tape acrylic adhesive masking tape used for contact of Electronic/Electrical Circuits. It also prevents malfunction of parts for various display caused by electromagnetic waves. Copper Conductive Tapes, also known as EMI Shielding Tapes, are ideal for building ground systems. They are made from a copper foil with an acrylic conductive adhesive. These conductive tapes are supplied on a paper liner for easy handling and cutting. The Copper Conductive tapes provide a very low rate of electrical resistance. Copper Foil Tape is typically used as an EMI/RFI shielding tape for applications in the electronics industry such as static charge draining, seaming shielded rooms, cable wrapping and surface contact to non-solderable materials. Copper Foil Tape consists of a 1-ounce rolled copper foil backing and an electrically conductive, pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive. This tape is supplied on a removable liner for easy handling and die-cutting. It has excellent solder ability. Copper Foil Tape is typically used for applications requiring excellent electrical conductivity from the application substrate through the adhesive to the foil backing. Common uses include grounding and EMI shielding in equipment, components, shielded rooms, etc. The tin plating facilitates soldering to the backing and resists oxidation and corrosion.
