3M™ PET Laminated Aluminum Foil Shielding Tape AL-36NC has a 1.5-mil polyester/aluminum laminated backing with non-conductive pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive and liner. Polyester top layer provides insulation between shield to neighboring circuits.
Features and Benefits
PET-laminated to aluminum foil backing to insulate shield from neighboring circuits.
Aluminum foil backing for good shielding effectiveness and easy converting (slitting and die cutting).
UL recognized flame-retardancy per UL 510 for applications needing this property.
Non-conductive 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 for components, connectors, and cables.
Conductive circuit or bus bar for low voltage applications
The polyester laminate provides insulating and covers aluminum to resist oxidation and corrosion.
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.
Used for applications where shield does not require ESD (electrostatic discharge) grounding from backing to substrate through the adhesive (i.e. floating shield).
The AL-36NC tape has 1-mil thick polyester film laminated to 0.4-mil aluminum foil backing. Acrylic adhesive has good resistance to heat, oxidation, solvents and oils. 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 AL-36NC tape is available from 3M in log rolls (standard size of 19.7 inch x 21.8 yds or 500 mm x 20,0 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.
