The tape is easily cut to size and may be quickly applied to a specimen mount or other surface. Carbon or metallic coating normally is applied to the sample and mount. An electrical discharge bridge is then completed from sample, through the copper and its conductive glue to the grounded specimen mount.
The tape is dead soft copper with a conductive acrylic adhesive. It is supplied on a removable liner for easy handling and cutting. The tape offers excellent conductivity through the foil backing.
This tape is 6.3mm W x 16.46m L (1/4" x 18 yd) or 12.7mm W x 16.46m L (1/2" x 18 yd) and the core diameter is 76mm (3").
Foil Thickness: 0.04mm (.0014")
Total Thickness: 0.07mm (.0028")
