EMI Connector Gaskets and MIL-DTL-83528 Part Numbers

EMI connector gaskets provide environmental sealing and shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI) in electrical and electronic connectors. They are cut or molded from electrically-conductive elastomers and designed to fill small gaps between uneven connector surfaces. EMI silicones for connector gaskets are soft enough to support compression and can provide proven levels of EMI shielding while resisting water, moisture, many chemicals, and a wide range of temperatures.Specialty [...]

EMI Shielding for Drones and UAVs

Russian electronic warfare has destroyed or disabled 90% of Ukraine’s drones, according to Forbes magazine. Some of these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were fixed-wing aircraft, but many were small quadcopters and octocopters. Multi-rotor drones are the most popular type of UAV today, and they have many civilian applications, such as power-line and pipe inspections, that range far beyond the battlefield.Whether UAVs are designed for military or civilian use, and whether electromagnetic [...]

EMI Silicones: Technical Data and Test Results

How do you decide which EMI silicones to buy? Price, minimum order quantity, and delivery times are important, but you also need to see technical data and test results.

Continuous Rolls of EMI Gasket Materials

A telecommunications company urgently needed EMI gaskets to seal and insulate enclosures for a new WiFi module. The timeline was tight, the cost-pressure was great, and the part volumes were high. The telecom company specified an electrically-conductive elastomer and contacted suppliers of EMI silicones with nickel-coated graphite particles. These specialized materials provide shielding against electromagnetic interference and cost less than silver-filled EMI elastomers.   Many [...]
