The conductive elastomers are mostly used in shielding the electronic enclosures to prevent the electromagnetic interference. The entire EMI shielding system is made up with a conductive gasket that is placed between a metal housing and a lid. This set up allows for providing sufficient electrical conductivity across the gasket.

5 Standard Characteristics of Conductive Elastomers

Generally, the conductive elastomers are available with or without the adhesive backing, and there are specific characteristics to serve the unique requirements of the industry. They are:

• High-end mechanical properties which allow it to suit all environments
• Excellent electromagnetic shielding properties
• Wide temperature range
• Made of polymer silicone, fluorosilcone, or EPDM
• The effectiveness of shielding can extend up to 120dB at 10GHz.

Application Areas

When there’s the need to create an EMI shielding along with environmental sealing, the electrically conductive elastomers prove to be the ideal choice. The highly conductive as well as resilient characteristics of the gasketing elements allows it to be used in a broad spectrum of fields – wirelessly transmitting device, commercial electronics, and military devices.
