Copper Tape is used as a protective coating on a wide variety of materials. Tape is also used in packaging applications.

Copper tape can be an interesting addition to your toolbox. The tape itself is made of thin pure copper so its extremely flexible and can take on nearly any shape. You can easily solder to it, and the tape itself can carry current just like a wire.

On the back is an electrically conductive adhesive.

The adhesive can't carry significant current but it is very handy for sensing applications where you don't want to solder the copper tape.

Copper Tape is commonly used as a strong light weight outer coating. Additionally, tapes can serve as adhesives that bond two objects together.
