Copper Tape


Easily Create Circuits

Copper tape has countless applications in electronics from creating low-profile traces for electrical components to RF-shielding and antenna-making. One of our favorite uses involves creating paper circuits using some copper tape, a battery and an LED. Copper tape is even used to join things together using solder, like the stained glass on Tiffany lamps.

  • This copper tape is backed by a conductive adhesive, is 5mm wide and comes in rolls of 50 feet. Perfect for more precise projects.
  • Combine with an LED and coin cell battery for a simple paper circuit
