Metalised Conductive Foam Gaskets M-CF 1-5 A0/A1

Metalised Conductive Foam Gaskets M-CF 1-5 A0/A1

Electronic Shielding Materials

This product is constructed to provide X, Y and Z-axis conductivity for enhanced shielding effectiveness and low electrical resistance between mating surfaces.

Product Description...

  • Metalised Conductive Foam gaskets are a Nickel-Copper plated Polyurethane Foam sandwiched between electrically conductive polyester fabric.
  • The metalised CF core shows significant performance improvement over conventional perimeter-conductive products especially at higher frequencies.
  • Supplied with either Conductive or Non-Conductive (A1) pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA).
  • Flexible sheet material easy to die cut for customised shapes and easy application.

Features and Benefits...

  • Highly conductive to provide excellent EMI shielding and grounding.
  • Superior conductivity under Low Compression Forces and shielding effectiveness at very high frequencies.
  • Nickel/Copper polyester fiber ensures good oxidation and corrosion resistance / galvanic compatibility with a wide range of plated and stainless-steel surfaces.
  • Abrasion resistant fabric, high reliability and virtually no degradation in shielding performance after 1 million cycles.
  • Ideal for (I/O) input/output applications and other connector configurations such as SMA, USB ports or IEEE 1394 High Speed Comms.
  • Gaskets can be supplied die cut ready for assembly.
  • Halogen-free products available upon request.
