I have seen in Laptops and LCD panels, a yellow tape is used to cover connections/connectors.
Does this tape have any special electrical or other property ?
The yellow tape is  usually much more thicker than the normal scotch tape.

If we dont have a similar type of yellow tape can we use a few layers of scotch tape ?

Any suggestions comments would be appreciated.

what do you want to use it for?
The tape is just there to protect it from dust and to make it more secure when shipping etc.

It's probably electrical tape: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrical_tape It's used to insulate components from potentially shorting out. You should use it rather than several layers of scotch tape.

It is Anti-Static or ESD Tape and please don't use scotch tape as it can build a static charge. Here is a link to get some ESD Tape.

f-king,
>what do you want to use it for?
I want to recover the electrical connections in the laptop.

I would agree with avcompnic explanation. I wonder how will the static charge if any, will affect the performance ? Any comments will be appreciated.
