EMI O-Rings: Conductive Gaskets for EMI Shielding

EMI O-rings are electrically-conductive gaskets that provide reliable shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI), disturbances that can disrupt electronic components, modules and systems. These EMI shielding gaskets are made of specialty silicones that are packed with metallic or metal-coated particles. Silicones, a family of synthetic elastomers, withstand a wide range of temperatures and provide environmental sealing. The metallic or metal-coated particles in EMI silicones conduct [...]


Silicone Rubber Calendering for Military and Aerospace Grades

Silicone rubber calendering for military and aerospace grades is used to produce composite materials that meet demanding specifications such as A-A 59588, Class 3B, Grade 50. Often, the silicone rubber is reinforced with a fabric such as DuPont Dacron®, a lightweight polyester material with excellent tear strength. Military and aerospace seals that are molded from a silicone/Dacron composite combine the wide temperature range and sealing capability of silicone with the structural integrity [...]
