Copper Foil

Used instead of lead in most lampshade work, and on many other projects. First you wrap the copper foil around the entire perimeter of the glass, where it is held in place by its adhesive backing. After you have wrapped and fitted together several pieces, you run a continuous bead of solder along all of the exposed copper. You then turn the work over and repeat the process on the reverse.

EDCO Copper Foil
EDCO Copper Foil

Folks just love our EDCO copper foil. Made of "dead soft" copper, it is just as the name implies, soft! This softness makes it easy to work with. It offers little resistance to being shaped and it bends easily. Our customers have told us that it conforms easily to the glass, and adheres very well.

EDCO has been in business even longer than we have -- since 1954 -- so we figure they must be doing something right. Let us know what you think.

Venture Tape Copper Foil
Venture Tape Copper Foil

We have been selling Venture Tape for about as long as they've been in existence. Venture Tape has been making industrial tapes of all sorts since 1980, right here in our hometown of Rockland, Mass. After they were purchased in 2007 by the behemoth 3M Company, they stopped making the more exotic foils like black backed and New Wave, but we still count on them for standard copper foil in various widths.
