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. Copper Conductive Tape has a conductive acrylic adhesive for grounding and RFI/EMI (radio-frequency interference/electromagnetic interference) shielding applications. Also known as EMI shielding tape, it provides a very low rate of electrical resistance for good conductivity. These long-lasting tapes can eliminate the need for screws and mechanical fasteners – while providing for contact grounding and EMI Shielding in the bond line gap/slit. Single sided conductive copper tapes for SEM / FIB applications. Indispensable for making ground contacts between the sample surface and SEM stub or SEM sample holder. 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. On the back is an electrically conductive adhesive. The adhesive can’t carry significant current but it is very handy for sensing applications where you don’t want to solder the copper tape. We’ve seen such tape used for EMI shielding, working with EL, making capacitive touch pads, ultra-thin wiring needs, etc. 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. Adhesive tape refers to any one of a variety of combinations of a backing materials coated with an adhesive. Different backing materials and adhesives can be used depending on the intended use.
