Foil Tape

Foil Tape

Foil Tapes consists of a metal-foil backing often aluminum or copper. Available with conductive or non conductive acrylic adhesives. They are flame retardant and works great during extreme temperature, high humidity, exposure to UV rays and most chemicals.

A versatile product, copper tapes are a popular choice for use across a wide range of consumer and industrial applications. Including, EMI/RFI shielding, arts & crafts, batteries and more.

Aluminum tapes are engineered with an aggressive, long lasting, pressure-sensitive adhesive that demonstrates superior bonding when exposed to both sub-zero and elevated temperatures. They have a wide range of application in industries such as HVAC, industrial, appliance and marine.

What is conductive foil tape?

Conductive foil tapes refer to tapes made of metal foil backing. The most commonly used conductive foils are made of electrolytic grade, high tensile copper or aluminum. The metal backing contributes to the tape’s electrical conductivity. Conductive foils are frequently employed for insulation in building construction and EMI shielding due to their reflective properties and electrical conductivity.

Copper with conductive adhesive

Copper foil tape with conductive adhesive has better conductive properties because its adhesive consists of two parts, a polymeric resin and a metal filler. The polymeric resin is a sticky paste that provides the physical property of adhesion. The metal fillers are particles of silver, gold, nickel, copper or graphite, in an appropriate amount to ensure electrical conductivity. Thus, copper with conductive adhesives has been used in electronic circuits repairing and EMI / RFI shielding.

Aluminum with conductive adhesive

Fun fact, aluminum is the fourth-best conductor behind only gold, copper, and silver, making it an excellent material for conductive foil tape. It is frequently used in shielding of electronic circuits from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and in grounding.
