Description: 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 adhesive-backed, a whopping 2" wide and comes in rolls of 50 feet. That’s a lot of copper.
Thickness: 3 mil
Based on 3 ratings:
It’s great for making things like dipole antennas, rf gasketing, other.
Used this copper tape to shield a new Pro-ject Carbon turntable and unshielded interconnects for a nephew living in an apartment. Although it did not eliminate all noise, it was very noticeable at about 10-12 db lower than pre-copper. And that’s a lot! The weak spot is in the components themselves (probably the phono preamp) and no amount of copper shielding would have completely eliminated RFI and EMI interference.
