Chibitronics Conductive Fabric Tape Patches
Use these Chibitronics conductive fabric tape patches to build circuits! This tape is soft, flexible, sturdy and has a nice conductive adhesive. Each pack contains 64 swatches of conductive fabric tape, pre-cut to 0.2″ x 0.6″ (5mm x 15mm) patches for your projects. Also available on a roll.
About Conductive Fabric Patches:
Whether you are just learning or a seasoned crafter, Chibitronics conductive fabric tape patches are a must-have accessory. It’s a tiny bridge of durable conductive fabric with a highly conductive adhesive on one side. Use it to patch gaps in copper tape, make T-junctions, build live hinges, or connect to our Love to Code products in a semi-permanent fashion. You can even find new life for old, used-up stickers by bridging between the shiny pads on the top side of our stickers and adjacent strips of copper tape.
How to use:
Use fabric tape to patch over small gaps in copper tape…
…or create a three-way “T” junction!
Paste fabric patches over copper tape to improve reliability through repeated creasing and folding.
You can also use these patches to connect to worn-out LED stickers, by pasting over the top electrodes.
Made out of a special nickel-plated polyester-copper weave and laminated with a conductive nickel-acrylic adhesive, these conductive fabric tape patches can make robust electrical connections that can survive creasing and hinging. Always ensure that the metal surfaces you’re planning to sticker over are smooth and clean of oil and dirt, and that your fingers are also clean and dry. Dirt and oil resist electricity, so even an invisible film of dirt will degrade the reliability of any electronic sticker. Best practice is to always wash and dry your hands before applying stickers, and to use a hard eraser to rub off any dirt or oil that may have built up on your copper tape before applying the fabric tape patches.
Chibitronics products are a creative and fun way to learn electronics. Build circuits without soldering, plugging wires, or clips. Instead, use the stickers with conductive tape to draw circuits on paper and other crafts.
Chibitronics Chibi Lights LED Circuit Stickers are LED lights on peel-and-stick stickers. You can use them to add electronics to any sticker-friendly surface. Circuit Stickers are an approachable way to learn and create electronics through craft, whether you’re just starting out with circuits, lighting up your favorite art, craft or science project.
