super smooth carbon tapes


Introduction - material - construction

The super smooth high purity double sided conductive adhesive carbon tapes are especially developed for imaging and analysis applications of fine powder and fibre samples. The adhesive material used for the tapes is fully transparent for EDS analysis with only trace amounts of Al and Si. The material is constructed using a super smooth aluminium foil coated on both sides with a conductive, carbon filled pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive. Total thickness of the material is approximately 110µm with an adhesive thickness of 40µm on each side. The adhesive exhibits a high adhesion strength to metals, plastics,  ceramics, wafers, rubber, wood, glass, paper, and small particles or fibers. 

The tape can be shaped into custom forms, strips and cut-outs. Available with 5mm, 8mm, 12mm and 20mm width by 20m long.

To use: Cut the required length of carbon tape. Cut to shape if needed. Remove the white liner from one side and adhere to tape to the sample support. The use of sharp pointed tweezers helps to lift the liner of the adhesive. Remove the top liner and adhere sample to the tape. The carbon tape can be removed with isopropanol, ethyl acetate, ethanol or acetone.

Features and benefits of the super smooth double sided carbon tapes are:

  • Super smooth thin material
  • Excellent for fine powders and small fibres
  • Ideal for automated EDS particle analysis
  • Use temperature range -20°C to + 60°C
  • Low outgassing rates
  • Fully EDS transparent high purity for EDS applications
  • High strength thin adhesive (2x40µm) combined with high tack
  • Long shelf life and can be stored in a refrigerator
