Screening tapes are easy to install shields in the form of a metallic tape to protect cables from EMC interference, even for installed cables. 3M ScotchTM 1183 screening tape ensures exceptional screening of electromagnetic fields and is UL approved. Made from copper foil, it is plated with a thin layer of tin. The tin-plating is compatible with a wide range of base materials such as aluminium, lead and tin alloys, and galvanised steels. The uniform foil composition and its good conductivity to the substrate ensure low contact resistance, which is crucial for the degree of screening. Solderable and corrosion-resistant, the acrylic adhesive is also resistant to solvents. Suitable for use in electromagnetic field screening and electrostatic discharge.
