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.
Features and Benefits
Dead soft 1-ounce (2.0-mil) aluminum foil backing for good shielding effectiveness and converting (slitting and die cutting).
UL recognized flame-retardancy per UL 510 for applications needing this property.
Conductive particles in the adhesive provides low contact resistance between the substrate and the backing to drain static charge.
Acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive has good resistance to heat, oxidation, solvents and oils.
Removable liner makes it easy to handle and die cut complex shapes.
There are both standard and custom roll widths and lengths to meet a variety of application needs.
RFI/EMI (radio-frequency interference or electromagnetic interference) shielding and ESD (electrostatic discharge) grounding for components, connectors, cables, equipment enclosures/cabinets and shielded rooms.
Conductive circuit or bus bar for low voltage applications
Used in jobs requiring moisture and chemical resistance, thermal conductivity, flame resistance, heat and light reflectance and weatherability.
It is well suited for applications requiring shaping as aluminum bends easier than copper.
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. The 1170 tape is available from 3M in log rolls (standard size of 23 inch x 18 yds or 584 mm x 16,5 m) to 3M slitter/converters. Also, 3M offers to 3M authorized distributors (and slitter/converters) various size slit rolls for resale to end users. Custom die-cut and formed parts are available from 3M slitter/converters.
