Nickel-Graphite Conductive Silicone Composite
SSP-502-65-032 Composite-NG-1 is a 65-durometer (Shore A), nickel-graphite-filled silicone with a nickel-coated reinforcing inner mesh for ultimate strength and optimal conductivity. This conductive silicone elastomer and conductive fabric composite from Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) is recommended when brittleness or tearing is a potential problem in cutting, packaging, or end-use applications.
Conductive Fabric Reinforced
SSP502-65-032 is reinforced with an inner layer of conductive fabric and offers both EMI shielding and environmental sealing. This cost-effective composite yields volume resistivity values that are similar to significantly more expensive silver-coated metal-filled elastomers. The conductive fabric in SSP502-65-032 also imparts physical properties that are far superior to those in elastomers alone.
Compared to other EMI RFI shielding materials, SSP-502-65-032 provides outstanding tensile strength and tear strength. When a material lacks sufficient tensile strength, cutting a small part with a thin cross-section may result in tearing during packaging or application. SSP-502-65-032 proves that particle-filled silicones don’t have to be brittle, nor do they have to tear easily.
This SSP composite also offers silver-like conductivity without the price volatility and cost concerns associated with silver. In addition, SSP-502-65-032 can be produced as a continuous roll up to 15 inches wide to eliminate concerns about yield, lead times, added labor, and handling issues when cutting molded sheets.
