Copper Tape, Foil Tape with Conductive Adhesive – Range
Copper tape has countless applications in electronics from creating low-profile traces for electrical components to RF-shielding and antenna-making. Copper tape is even used to join things together using solder, like the stained glass on Tiffany lamps.
This copper tape is backed by a conductive adhesive, is 5mm wide, and comes in rolls of 50 feet. Perfect for more precise projects.
The tape itself is made of thin pure copper so its extremely flexible and can take on nearly any shape. You can easily solder to it, and the tape itself can carry current just like a wire. 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 electroluminescent materials , making capacitive touch pads, ultra-thin wiring needs, etc. I’ve even used it to repair some worn sections on my Scalextric track!
Comes in approx 15 metre (50 feet) rolls, this tape is 3mils/0.07mm thick and has conductive adhesive on one side and a protective paper backing over the adhesive. It is available in 25mm (1 inch) and 6mm (1/4 inch) wide.
