SSP-502-40-V0 is a 40-durometer, very conductive, nickel-graphite, flame-retardant EMI silicone that conforms to UL-94 V0. Use instead of GORE GS2100.


Flame Retardant, Low Outgassing EMI Gasket Material

SSP-502-40-V0 is a 40-durometer (Shore A), flame-retardant, electrically-conductive, low-outgassing silicone compound that is filled with nickel-coated-graphite particles for EMI RFI shielding. This lower-durometer silicone conforms to UL-94 V0 for flame resistance and has been tested to ASTM595 outgassing paramters both with and without conductive PSA applied. 

Replacement for GORE® GS2100 EMI Gasket Material

Use SSP-502-40-V0 instead of GS2100, a discontinued GORE® EMI Material. Applications include EMI gaskets for military and defense, aerospace, spaceflight, telecommunications, wireless infrastructure, automotive, mobile phones, GPS, portable computers, and handheld field testing equipment.  

EMI Shielding: Cost and Effectiveness

SSP-502-40-V0 offers performance levels that are comparable to shielding silicones filled with silver-coated particles. This very conductive and flame retardant silicone from Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) has a typical shielding effectiveness of > 113 dB for the 20 MHz to 10 GHz band (E-field). 

UL-94 V0 Flame Resistance

SSP-502-40-V0 is tested to the parameters of UL-94 V0, a burn testing standard for materials used commonly in the enclosures, structural parts, and insulators found in consumer electronics. This particle-filled silicone from SSP is recommended for applications that require electrical conductivity, EMI shielding, and flame resistance. 

Thinner, Smaller, and Lighter-Weight 

SSP-502-40-V0 shielding silicones are comparable to Parker Chomerics 6372 EMI material for conductive elastomer gaskets. As part of SSP’s 502 series, this nickel-coated graphite-filled elastomer enables thinner, smaller, and lighter weight EMI RFI solutions. 

ASTM595 Outgassing Report

SSP-502-40-V0 is supplied as sheet stock and continuous roll stock with or without conductive pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA).  SSP502-40-V0 has been tested to ASTM595 outgassing parameters both with and without conductive PSA applied. For more information, see the Outgassing Report.
