Metallic tape is one of the most common types of adhesive tapes that can be used to adhere to both conductive and non-conductive materials. Depending on their design, these products may have thermal conductivity and be temperature- and weather-resistant, which translates into the possibility of using them in a variety of different situations and environments with ease.
And as long as conductive tapes are concerned, there is a common use for them- to attach electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interferences (RFI) shields to devices or for connecting or bonding the various substrates together for the purpose of grounding.
As for copper tapes, these tapes can be used for a wide range of applications, including ground protection, reducing the risk of a high-voltage power cable breaking through or leaking electricity if these tapes are used correctly.
Applications of Metallic Tape
Metallic Tapes have a range of application use such as
- Construction industries
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, strong, resistant to heat, and metallic silver in color.
Aluminium tape is remarkably durable which ensures that it remains intact even in temperatures that range from extremely cold to extremely hot. Duct seams, joints, and connections are commonly secured with this tape. Moreover, its waterproof properties are excellent. Aluminized foil tape provides weather protection and chemical protection for exteriors.
Lead Foil Tape
This type of tape is electrically and thermally conductive. This tape is suitable for a range of temperature conditions and 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.
How metallic tapes can help?
Metallic Tape can also act as a specialized strip of adhesive for attaching various objects using magnets - for example, pictures, postcards, drawings, and plans. Moreover, the powerful self-adhesive nature of metal tape makes it ideal for use with magnets since it adheres perfectly to the foam layer on the wall. Now it's not a big deal to have woodchip wallpaper on your walls.
It is even possible to build a magnetic wall of your own by sticking several strips parallel to one another. It is possible to cut strips into any shape or size using ordinary household scissors and that's all you need to do.
