Internal testing against products supplied by leading copper tape UK manufacturers revealed that Diamond Coatings (DC) copper tape is the most conducting (both along itself and to metal surfaces) tape currently on the market.

Diamond Coatings Copper Tape Properties

Supplied with conductive, either single sided or double-sided, adhesive and release liners, DC copper tape UK features the following properties:

  • Material Thickness: 0.025 mm (+/-0.005 mm)

  • Release Liner: 0.11 ~ 0.15 mm
  • Total Thickness: 0.076 mm (+/-0.005 mm)
  • Vickers Hardness 0.3/15: 42
  • Elongation Lo = 100mm: 16.84% to 17.77%
  • Tensile Strength, Rm: 194.67 to 201.07 N/mm²
  • Holding Power (178º/PST#7): >72 Hr
  • Peel Adhesion (180º/PST#1): >1.0 Kg/in
  • Temperature: 5 ~ 130 ºC
  • Volume Resistivity (in Ohms/sq): <0.09 Ω/sq

DC Copper Tape UK Applications

Available in standard widths of 6 mm, 12 mm, 25 mm and 50 mm (non-standard widths can also be supplied upon request) and 20m rolls, DC copper tape is suitable for sealing gaps on RFI/EMI sensitive enclosures and fixing/sealing Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coated windows into apertures. Common applications include:

  • PDAs
  • PDPs
  • LCD Monitors
  • Smartphones and other Mobile Devices
  • Duplicating Machines
  • Other Electronic Equipment Requiring EMI/RFI Shielding
  • Low-Profile Transmission Lines (Surface Mounted) in Electronics
  • Antenna Production and More

Perfect for bonding, grounding and shielding in electronic applications, copper tape also has a perhaps less conventional, yet apparently somewhat effective use as a slug and snail repellent. Here’s how (and why) this works.
