What is 3M Electrically Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tape? (ECATT)Electrically conductive adhesive transfer tape, or ECATT, is a special tape comprised of a fabric base and a coating made with acrylic, or silicone. ECATT contains metal particles within its fibers that conduct electricity. The tape can carry electric signals through the adhesive, replacing the need for thermal glue or other messy alternatives.
Unlike other electrically conductive adhesives that can be difficult to handle, 3M offers advanced pressure-sensitive adhesives with conductive properties that are conformable and easy to utilize. These high-performance electrically conductive tapes can be hand or machine-applied and die-cut into various shapes and sizes.
