Electrically conductive double sided tape, 3M XYZ-axis

This highly conductive double sided tape with excellent adhesion and conductivity properties comes in 12.7mm wide x 32.9m long rolls and has been initially developed for bonding EMI/RF shields. Advantages of this new tape are: Improved adhesion - creates a solid bond and allows attachment of dissimilar materialsEasy handling - more solid tape, conductive fibers reinforced and easier to removeHigh conductivity - creates solid electrical connectionsDue to the high electrical conductivity and excellent bonding properties these tapes are ideally suited for bonding conductive samples on SEM specimen mounts or directly on SEM specimen holders. They can be used under clean room conditions. The conductive nickel fibers extend above the adhesive ensuring a solid electrical connection between parts. It is less suitable for mounting small or powder like specimen due to the fibers in the adhe...

Due to the high electrical conductivity and excellent bonding properties these tapes are ideally suited for bonding conductive samples on SEM specimen mounts or directly on SEM specimen holders. They can be used under clean room conditions. The conductive nickel fibers extend above the adhesive ensuring a solid electrical connection between parts. It is less suitable for mounting small or powder like specimen due to the fibers in the adhesive and the topographic surface.

Based upon four wire (Kelvin probe) resistance measurements made with crossed pieces of Foil/Type 9712 or 9713/Rigid plate construction using a 1.0" x 1.0" square piece of 3M tape Type 9712 or 9713. The rigid metal surface was prepared with a Scotch-Brite pad to roughen the surface and cleaned with isopropyl alcohol.

XYZ highly conductive tape comes on a 76mm (3") plastic core and sizes for Type 9712 are 6.35mm, 12.7mm and 25mm W x 32.9m L (1/4", 1/2" and 1" x 36 yd) and for Type 9713 is 12.7mm, 25mm, and 100mm W x 32.9m L (1/2", 1", and 4" x 36 yd), .61m W x 98.6m L (24" x 108 yd), .61m W x 32.9m L (24" x 36 yd).    

Thickness: 0.127mm (5 mil). The tape adhesive can be removed relatively easily by pulling off, rubbing or by application of packaging tape over the residual adhesive. Adhesive can be dissolved in acetone.
