  • About single sided foil tape

    Single sided foil tape consists of an adhesive coated onto an aluminium foil, copper foil or lead foil backing. They are available in a range of thicknesses and performance levels for both general purpose and high performance applications.

    Copper and aluminium foil tapes are commonly used in construction, industrial, electronics, automotive, aerospace and HVAC markets. They offer reliable performance for a range of applications such as masking, splicing, damping, shielding, insulating, sealing, reflecting and fixing.

    Our single coated foil tapes bond to a variety of different surfaces including wood, metal and plastic and are suitable for internal or external use. We have an extensive range of foil tapes from world leading manufacturers; click on the products tab to learn more.
