  • About electrically conductive tape

    Electrically conductive tape offers high performance bonding and conductive properties in an easy to use, non-messy format. They provide an ideal shielding solution in electronic devices, especially where space and weight reduction is a primary design criterion.

    Electrically conductive tapes offer a reliable alternative to traditional fixing solutions and eliminate the need for secondary grounding solutions like screws and fasteners.

    Our conductive tapes also offer grounding and shielding qualities and are available in a variety of materials, in a range of thicknesses, as a double coated tape, single coated and transfer tape. Our wide range of electrically conductive tapes is available with Z axis or XYZ axis conductivity. Electrically conductive foam tapes are also available for additional shock absorbing, gap filling and cushioning properties.

    Parafix offer an extensive range of electrically conductive products from world leading manufacturers. Click on the products tab for more information, or view our EMI & RFI shielding page for more information on the range of products available for electronic device applications.
