Default flexible conductive foils

where is it possible to find films that resemble plastic and silk but that are conductive, about 6cm²? are there everyday materials like mylar and crisp packets? thanks!

What type of material do you need?
If you are after flexible copper laminates [used for flexi circuits ribbon connectors etc] this company may be able to help :

http://www.holders.co.uk/

Whilst generally dealing in volume , some products can be supplied in sample form.
They have helped me out with flexible laminates in the past.

thank you, laminates sound very versatile

I've also found that 0.025mm wire cloth is all right but it's hard to get hold of

guess what- mylar is ultra conductive! I measured the wrong side! I had about 10 square metres of mylar all this time and I never realised!

also laminated plastic shielding inside pc wires like some mouse and keyboard and monitor extensions...nice one!

carbon fiber is quite a good conductor, even when it is layed up with resin.
