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
This raw copper is not coated and can build up a layer of verdigris over time unless it is sealed.

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.
Bought to shield the GPS module. Worked great!
High Quality heavy copper foil with nice conductive backing - excellent for RF shielding, VHF circuit layouts. Solders super easily. Excellent value.
We use this tape for manufacturing electromagnetic antenna's.
...with a sticky backing. Cheap, copper, sticky. Use it for touch sensors. This is a lot of copper for the money. Good, pure, copper. I think I have enough copper for a few years. Copper. Mmmm...
