Metal tape is a form of adhesive tape that can be either conductive or non-conductive. They may offer thermal conductivity and are temperature and weather resistant, meaning they can be used in a variety of applications and environments.
Types of Metal Tape
Copper Metal Tape
This tape comes in two forms, either conductive or non-conductive. Made with a thin layer of copper the tapes are flexible and can take on any shape. Copper tapes have numerous different applications within electronics. The adhesive tapes can be used for creating low profile traces for components, as RF shielding and for making antennas. They can also be used to join things together using solder or use to keep snails and slugs out of your garden.
Also known as foil tape, this has many applications in different industries such as electrical, construction and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning). This tape is flexible and strong with excellent temperature resistance. Aluminium foil tape has all the qualities of aluminium but also has an adhesive that is aggressive and long lasting. This self-adhesive tape is ideal for protecting, masking, covering, insulating and repairing in a quick, easy and affordable way.
Lead Foil Tape
This type of tape is electrically and thermally conductive. This tape is suitable for a range of temperature conditions, can resist flame, UV degradation, radiation and changes in weather conditions. Typical applications of Lead Foil Tape include chemical milling and electroplating masking.
Metallic Tapes also come in a variety of different lengths and widths to suit a range of needs.
