Copper Coated Films: An Overview
Copper foils are widely used in the electronics industry, but its high cost limits its applications and creates a demand for substitute solutions. So the manufacturers use copper coated films instead of copper foils. The use of copper coated films provides a cost effective alternative to the conventional copper foil. Copper coated films can be designed for various conductive layer thicknesses to cater to the conductivity requirement of different applications. Aluminum foils cannot be electrically connected by standard methods while copper coated films can be easily soldered or connected using conductive adhesives, also conductivity of copper coated films is more than 1.5 times higher than that of aluminum foils. These factors have led to increased popularity of copper coated films among the various end use industries.

Copper Coated Films: Dynamics
Increasing demand for copper coated films in labelling, decoration, lamination and insulation applications are expected to drive the global demand for copper coated films. The use of copper coated films has risen at a significant rate during the past few years owing to its superior conduction properties over counterparts such as aluminum foils. Electronics industry is one of the most prominent end use industry for copper coated films. Increased use of semi-conductor equipment in manufacturing and automotive industries is expected to fuel the demand for copper coated films during the forecast period. Moreover, the glossy appearance coupled with superior bond strength of copper coated films enables the manufacturer to use them for labelling applications.
Manufacturers are enhancing features in their existing product lines and offering customized conductivity and thickness to cater to specific needs of end use industries. For instance,
- Dunmore Corporation, one of the leading manufacturer of metallized films, provides both unprotected and coated copper substrate for copper coated films. The company provides non-corrosive coating to protect copper thin film from corrosion
