3M™ EMI Aluminum Foil Shielding Tape 1170


3M 1170

3M™ Aluminum Shielding Tape 1170 has a 2.0-mil smooth aluminum foil backing with a conductive acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive and liner. Aluminum is an alternative conductive backing material to copper. 3M™ 1170 EMI Shielding Tape is an easily die-cut, solderable 2-mil aluminum foil tape with conductive adhesive for EMI shielding and static charge draining when grounded. Acrylic adhesive has good resistance to heat, oxidation, solvents and oils. UL 510 flame-retardant. It is ideally suited for a variety of EMI shielding applications including shielding cables for motors, cables, cabinets and components.

The 1170 tape has common EMI shielding 2-mil thick aluminum foil backing. Highly conductive particles in the acrylic adhesive provide a multitude of electrical paths between the application substrate and the surface of the copper foil. Acrylic adhesive has good resistance to heat, oxidation, solvents and oils. The tape is UL Recognized for flame retardancy per UL 510. This tape is designed for a variety of applications: point-to-point electrical contact, EMI/RFI shielding, grounding and static charge draining. These tapes can used in both electronic & electrical devices, shielded rooms and EMI test laboratories for prototyping, design and troubleshooting. 3M™ EMI Shielding Tape has a multitude of uses in electronic design and test laboratories for prototyping, design and troubleshooting. Tapes with foil backings satisfy many requirements for effective grounding, bonding and EMI shielding. Aluminum, copper backings are available, both smooth and embossed, and with conductive and nonconductive adhesive systems. Both the unique embossed foil tapes and the smooth foil tapes with conductive adhesive offer excellent "through-the-adhesive" conductivity. A copper-plated polyester "rip stop" fabric backing is also available, providing shielding plus strength, flexibility and low weight. Available in custom widths from 1/8 inch to 24 inch, and comes standard on a 18 or 36 yard roll on a 3 inch diameter core..
