Whether you’re installing heat-generating components or applying designs to clothing with a heat press, you’ll need some way to attach components or insulate the high heat. Thermal tape is a good solution in these situations. These rolls of tape are thermally conductive and designed for transferring heat effectively in various applications. Here are some thermal tapes we recommend for you.
What to Look for in Thermal Tape
- Length: Although you probably won’t need more than a couple of strips for each component, a longer roll doesn’t hurt. Some thermal tape applications may require longer strips of tape.
- Adhesive sides: Some tapes can be double-sided. Double-sided tapes work better for joining components together, like heat sinks.
- Your application: Some thermal tapes are designed for heat press machines, while others work better for heat sinks or LED lights.
