20mm x 25 Metre Copper Slug Tape
Copper slug tape is a type of adhesive copper tape that is used in gardening to repel slugs and snails. The tape has a sticky backing that allows it to be easily applied to planters, raised beds, or any other surface where slugs may be a problem.
Copper has a natural electrical charge that creates a small electric shock when slugs come into contact with it. This shock is not harmful to the slugs, but it is enough to deter them from crawling over the tape and reaching the plants. Also, note that copper is a good conductor of electricity and opposed to snails and slugs, you will not receive any electric shocks when touched with bare skin. Copper slug tape is an effective, chemical-free solution to slug and snail problems in the garden. It is also easy to use and does not harm the environment or other wildlife in the area.
With a strong adhesive, copper tape conductive adhesive sticks to almost any clean surface. It’s strong, but it’s still easy to tear by hand, leaving no residue when you peel it off, so it’s perfect for protecting electronics. With copper tape, you’ll reduce annoying electrical interference and get the perfect tone. This is a much better solution than graphite and aluminium tape. In addition to being excellent for EMI/RFI shielding, flexible flat conductors, printed circuit boards and more, this copper tape for slugs tape has high tensile copper foil which is extremely malleable and is great for soldering.

FAQs For This Product
Is This Tape Slug Repellent?
Yes, copper tape is an effective slug repellent. Copper has a natural electrical charge that creates a small electric shock when slugs and snails come into contact with it. This shock is not harmful to the slugs or snails, but it is enough to make them avoid crossing over the copper tape and reaching the plants.
Copper tape can be used in a variety of gardening applications, such as placing it around the perimeter of planters, pots, and garden beds. This creates a physical barrier that slugs and snails cannot cross, effectively protecting plants from damage.
Compared to chemical pesticides and other traditional slug and snail repellents, copper tape is a natural and chemical-free option for gardeners who are looking for a more eco-friendly solution. It is also easy to use and does not harm the environment or other wildlife in the area.
Not only can copper tape be used as a slug repellent, it can also make an interesting feature to improve the appearance of an object.
Is Copper Slug Tape Environmentally Friendly?
Copper slug tape can be considered an environmentally friendly solution for repelling slugs and snails in the garden. Unlike many traditional slug and snail repellents that may contain harmful chemicals or pesticides, copper slug tape is a natural, non-toxic option.
Additionally, copper is a naturally occurring element and is recyclable, which means that copper slug tape can be reused or repurposed. Unlike plastic or other synthetic materials, copper will not accumulate in the environment or release harmful toxins.
Are Conductive Tapes Easy To Use?
Yes, conductive tapes are generally easy to use. These tapes are designed to conduct electricity and can be used for a wide range of applications such as electronics, circuitry, and more.
Conductive tapes are often made with metal particles or thin metal foils that allow them to conduct electricity. They are flexible and can be easily cut to size, making them ideal for creating custom circuit designs. Additionally, conductive tapes can be used to repair broken circuits or to replace traditional wiring in certain applications.
Most conductive tapes come with a self-adhesive backing, making them easy to apply to surfaces without the need for additional adhesives. This also makes them more convenient to use compared to traditional wires and cables.
Can Copper Tape Be Used For Arts & Crafts?
Yes, copper tape can be used for arts and crafts! While copper tape is commonly used for electrical and gardening purposes, its versatility makes it a popular material for creative projects. Here are a few ideas for using copper tape in arts and crafts:
- Jewellery making: Copper tape can be used to make unique and stylish jewellery pieces such as bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. The tape can be easily cut and shaped into different designs and patterns.
- Stained glass art: Copper tape can be used to create a “leading” outline for stained glass projects. The tape is applied to the glass pieces before they are soldered together, creating a clean and precise finish.
- Decorative accents: Copper tape can be used to add a metallic accent to a variety of crafts, including picture frames, candle holders, and even furniture with its interesting appearance.
