Title:

Wifi flex cable attachment question

Text:

If you look at the Flex cable and or a pic of one which is found on this ebay ad:
 
http://tinyurl.com/y9k4nll
 
or search on item number 150344196409
 
What kind of tape is used on the vertical sections of this flex cable? It is the three rectangular sections that have half rounded ends on each end of the tape.
 
Is this electrically conductive tape? I ask because it looks like it is impregnated with copper for conductivity or is some sort of cork insulator.
 
What ever it is. I am guessing it got damaged during the replacement of the metal case on my iPod, and it is impacting the wifi range.
 
Any experts out there or any body at all I would appreciate an answer.
 
Thanks in advance.
 
== Update ==
 
I still could use some kind of answer from a technical savvy person.
