MIL-DTL-83528 Conductive Shielding Elastomers and QPL 83528

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) makes conductive shielding elastomers, including five QPL listed products that meet MIL-DTL-83528 requirements. For engineers who need EMI/RFI gaskets for military applications, it’s important to know what MIL-DTL-83528 is and how it’s related to the QPL. It’s also worth learning about some other conductive shielding elastomers that are used in military projects.  What is MIL-DTL-83528?MIL-DTL-83528 is a detail specification from the U.S. [...]

EV Battery Box Sealing and EMI Shielding

Redesigning an EV battery box because of a gasket problem can be difficult and expensive. It’s better to account for EV battery box sealing up-front than to design the case and discover that a gasket won’t fit, or that a chosen material wasn’t the best selection. Along with low-temperature flexibility and high-temperature resistance, EV battery box gaskets need to provide shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI). They also need to meet tough flammability [...]
