At FindTape.com, we offer an excellent selection of lead foil tapes for all your practical, recreational and artistic needs. Lead foil tape is actually just 100 percent pure lead that has been coated with a specific type of adhesive. We offer both acrylic adhesive lead tape and rubber adhesive lead tape on our site.
As you can see in the following list, there are a number of unique and possibly surprising uses for these types of foil tape:
- Shielding and masking for radiation/X-rays and other electromagnetic and radio frequency purposes
- Weighting golf clubs
- Designing decorative leaded windows
- Creating a vapor barrier and mask for electroplating
It's clear that the uses for lead foil tape are quite diverse. Some of them are more on the artistic side, such as creating leaded windows for a decorative effect. Other uses are more recreational, like weighting golf clubs. But the most common uses for lead foil tape continue to be shielding in masking in situations where electromagnetic or radio waves are involved. This capability makes lead foil tape a powerful tool.
