A copper-plastic composite tape is a type of shielding tape used in communication cables. It is made up of a layer of copper foil that is laminated to a layer of plastic film, usually made of polyester or polypropylene. The plastic film helps to provide insulation and protection against environmental factors, while the copper foil provides a conductive layer that helps to shield the cable from electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Another type of tape commonly used for shielding in communication cables is a copolymer-coated aluminum tape. This tape is made up of a layer of aluminum foil that is coated with a copolymer layer, which provides a bond between the aluminum and the cable’s jacket. The copolymer layer also provides a barrier against moisture and other environmental factors.
Both types of tapes are commonly used in communication cables to provide shielding against EMI and other interference, helping to ensure the integrity and reliability of the signal being transmitted.
