Electrically conductive elastomers
About electrically conductive elastomers
Conductive elastomers are commonly used for the shielding of electronic enclosures against electromagnetic interference (EMI). The shielding system usually consists of a conductive gasket sandwiched between a metal housing and lid, the primary function being to provide sufficient electrical conductivity across the enclosure/gasket/lid junction.
Electrically conductive elastomers are ideal for use in applications that require environment sealing as well as EMI shielding. They provide highly conductive and resilient gasketing material for use in all wirelessly transmitting devices, from standard commercial electronics, to ruggedised military devices.
Our conductive elastomers are available with or without an adhesive backing and, with access to a wide range of adhesive materials; we can laminate material with an adhesive specified for your unique requirements.
Electrically conductive elastomer characteristics:
- Excellent mechanical properties
- Excellent electromagnetic shielding properties
- Can be used in a wide range of operating temperatures
- Available in a wide variety of filler materials
- Shielding effectiveness up to 120 dB at 10 GHz
