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. It is also used for other applications, such as electromagnetic shielding or low-profile surface mount transmission line in electronics and in the production of tiffany lamps.[citation needed] It comes in two forms; conductive adhesive and non-conductive adhesive.

Copper tape is tape made from strips of copper. This tape comes in varying widths, and it may be adhesive or non adhesive. There are a wide range of uses for this tape, ranging from gardening to amateur radio operations, and this product is available from places like hardware stores, gardening stores, and electronics stores. The cost varies, depending on the width of the tape and whether or not it is adhesive. In electronics, copper tape is valued because copper is conductive and  highly reliable. This tape may be used for shielding various electronic components, or for other electronics projects. Tapes for use in electronics are often of the extra thin foil tape type, which makes them lightweight and easy to handle, although thicker tapes are also available. Electricians may keep a roll on hand for various projects, as do people who work with audio components.
