The electric fence tape that we can buy here locally is some kind of ribbon with wire woven into it. 
The wire is stainless steel. very small diameter and I think prone to breakage. It is used here for the guys that want to move their fence regularly for rotational grazing and wind it up on a reel and then unwind it again in the new spot.
Without being any kind of expert on this I would guess it has much higher rsistance than aluminum wire.  I think that it is also more expensive than aluminum wire.
