1181 Tape
Copper Foil with Conductive Adhesive
Data Sheet
Product Description
3M 1181 Tape consists of a 1-ounce deadsoft
copper foil backing and a unique electrically
conductive pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive.
3M 1181Tape is typically used for applications
requiring excellent electrical conductivity from the
application substrate through the adhesive to the foil
backing. Common uses include grounding and EMI
shielding in equipment, components, shielded rooms,
etc. The copper foil backing is solderable and resists
oxidation and discoloration.
• Deadsoft 1-ounce copper foil backing
• Conductive acrylic adhesive
• Supplied on a removable liner for easy handling and
Shielding Effectiveness
Like all 3M shielding tapes, 3M 1181 is available in
standard and custom widths and lengths. Standard
length is 18 yards.
• Widths from 1/4” to 23”
• Longer lengths up to several times normal length,
dependent upon width. Check with Customer
Many factors determine the true shielding
effectiveness of a shielding tape, including type and
thickness of foil, adhesive type, intimacy of contact,
smoothness of application surface, strength and
frequency of the EMI signal, etc. However, using
standard tests and fixtures, it is possible to determine
a value for the attenuation.
For 3M 1181 Tape, typical shielding effectiveness
(far field) is in the range of 60dB to 80dB (30 MHz
to 1 GHz).
