  • About RFI and EMI shielding tape

    EMI RFI shielding tapes offer an economical solution for containing signals emitted from your components. As well as preventing this interference they seal out random signals in the environment to protect sensitive equipment. Their conductive adhesive offers static charge drainage, to eliminate potentially dangerous static build-up. Particles in the conductive adhesive provide low contact resistance between the substrate and the backing.

    Aluminium and copper foil shielding tapes are easy to install and, utilising our converting capabilities, can be die-cut to any shape to fit precisely into your products, making them ideal for thin or low profile applications. They offer a reliable and long-term shielding solution, maintaining the performance and quality of your products.

    Our wide range of shielding tapes are available in a variety of thicknesses and backing materials to meet galvanic compatibility requirements. These include fabric shielding tapes, aluminium, tin-plated copper foil tape and copper shielding tape with non-conductive or conductive adhesives.

    RFI/EMI shielding tape characteristics:

    • Superior abrasion and corrosion resistance
    • Flame retardant
    • Flat or embossed
    • Conductive adhesive for grounding and shielding

    Shielding tape applications include:

    • Shielding of seams and apertures in shielded rooms
    • Shielding around individual electronic components and cables
    • I/O shielding panels
    • Shielding of keyboard devices
    • Used around the outside of coils, relays, and other components to prevent broadband EMI emissions
    • Shielding doors and panels of electronic cabinets and enclosures
    • Shielding of electro-medical devices
    • Ground planes or shields for electronic cables and connectors
