Copper foil tape is a self-adhesive material used for various applications. It features a thin layer of copper on one side and an adhesive backing on the other, allowing it to easily adhere to surfaces. Commonly used in electronics, crafting, and electromagnetic shielding due to its conductivity and malleability.
Electronics and Electrical Industry: Copper foil tape is commonly used for electromagnetic shielding in electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other electronic components. It helps prevent interference from external electromagnetic fields and also contains electromagnetic emissions from the device itself.
Circuitry and PCBs: Copper foil tape is used for creating traces and grounding pathways on printed circuit boards (PCBs). It can be adhered to PCBs to create conductive pathways, connecting different components and enabling the flow of electrical signals.
EMI/RFI Shielding: The tape’s conductive properties make it effective for shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI). It’s applied to cables, connectors, and enclosures to block unwanted electromagnetic radiation.
