Conductive Fabric Over Foam Gaskets

Conductive Fabric Over Foam Gaskets

C-F FOF A0/A1

EMI gaskets are electrically conductive polyester fabric wrapped around a low compression force PU foam. Ideal for gaskets for use on doors and panels. Customer specific gasket profiles can be supplied.

  • The combination of Nickel & Copper (Ni/Cu) woven metal fibres provides excellent conductivity and shielding effectiveness (>80dB) over 100KHz to 1GHz frequency range.
  • Supplied with either a Conductive or Non-Conductive pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA).
  • Customised shapes and dimensions available.

Features and Benefits...

  • Highly conductive to provide good EMI shielding and grounding.
  • Very soft for Low Compression Force applications, allows use of lighter materials.
  • Nickel/Copper fibre ensures good oxidation and corrosion resistance / galvanic compatibility with a wide range of plated and stainless-steel surfaces.
  • Flame Retardant gaskets available – UL94 HB and UL94 V0 flammability rating.
  • Abrasion-resistant fabric, high reliability and virtually no degradation in shielding performance after 1 million cycles.
  • Broad range of cross-section profiles available to suit specific applications – D-shape, Rectangle, Bell, Square (see part numbers).
  • Gaskets can be supplied cut to length ready for assembly.
  • Halogen-free products are available upon request.

Applications...

Electronic shielding of wiring & high-end electronic products like:

  • Medical equipment, Cabinet applications
  • Plasma PDP and LCD TV / Displays
  • Broadcast & Communications equipment
  • Mobile Phones, Notebook, Laptop & Desktop Computers
  • X-Ray equipment
  • Enclosures – Server racks, Data Cabinets
  • Access Control Units
  • Military & Aerospace equipment.
