Aluminum Foil Tape for EMI / RFI / RF Shielding

Aluminum Foil Tape Rolls
Aluminum Foil Tape Roll

ST2 & AL5 Tape is applied like any tape with a release. The tape is used to RF shield between metal substrates.

EMI-SHIELD RF Shielding Tape has aluminum foil backing with a pressure sensitive, electrically conductive, proprietary acrylic adhesive that ensures adherence. The conductive particles in the adhesive offer low resistance between the substrate and the backing. This tape is designed for applications such as static charge draining, seaming shielded rooms, cable wrapping and providing surface contact to non solderable materials. Ideal for RF shielding, grounding and static charge draining.


Caution

Wear protective gloves when installing the foil, the edge is like a razor blade. Do not solder or weld EMI-Shield AL5 Tape

Concrete Warning
Since aluminum is subject to attack by alkaline(s) it should NOT be allowed to come in direct contact with concrete or mortar. If aluminum is in contact with concrete (or even other metals) and is subject to wetting (as would happen outdoors), the aluminum should be insulated from the concrete, mortar, or metal by adding a barrier like: asphalts, paint, sealer, 6 mil plastic polyurethane sheeting or a neoprene adhesive. Use waterproofing concrete sealer if you know water might get in, on or through the concrete. If the aluminum foil shielded room has fire sprinklers installed, it is good idea to water seal the concrete floor, just in case of an intentional or unintentional water discharge.
