"You might try the conductive adhesive-backed copper tape
manufactured by 3-M Company. We use this material in R.F.
shielding applications. This tape conducts right through the
adhesive and forms very easily. It comes in standard length
rolls in 1 inch and 2 inch widths. Its thickness is 0.003" including
the thickness of the adhesive. If you were to place a strip on
each side of a AL foil end, then you would have a tab that is
0.006" thick, with each copper strip attaching to both sides
of a given foil section. This material cuts with a sharp pair
of scissors very easily."
It's great stuff, and use it a lot here. You should
have mentioned that, in addition to cutting with a sharp pair
of scissors, the edges can also cut fingers to the bone without
much effort on the part of the unfortunate user!!!! Anyone know
how much this stuff costs?????
