Five Lessons from Electronica Munich

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) recently attended Electronica Munich, the world’s leading tradeshow for the electronics industry. From November 13 to 16, the Ballston Spa, New York (USA) company showcased SpecShield™ silicones that help to protect electronics from the damaging, disruptive, and potentially deadly effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI). Visitors to the SSP booth at Electronica Munich also learned how we provide [...]


Nickel-Aluminum Fluorosilicone Resists EMI, Fuels, Solvents, Galvanic Corrosion

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) now supplies a 72-durometer, nickel-aluminum fluorosilicone that’s been tested to MIL-DTL-83528 shielding effectiveness and resists fuels, solvents, and galvanic corrosion. SSP-2551 is ideal for marine environments such as the decks of aircraft carriers, where flange gaskets are subjected to salt spray, jet fuel, de-icing fluids, exhaust fumes, and electromagnetic interference (EMI).  Galvanic Protection in Marine Environments  Typically, EMI [...]


5G Networks, EMF Radiation Emissions, and EMI Shielding

5G networks will increase the speed, responsiveness, capacity, and latency of wireless communications. Fifth-generation (5G) cellular technology will also provide greater support for the Internet of Things (IoT), a network of connected, physical objects that contain electronics and sensors. Today, IoT applications include wearables, appliances, vehicles, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (VR), and Industry 4.0. Many electronic designers are excited about 5G’s benefits, but [...]


New White Paper: Molded Frame Gaskets for EMI Shielding

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) is announcing the release of a new white paper that explains how molded frame gaskets for EMI shielding can reduce costs, increase material yields, and support low-volume production. Engineers, technical buyers, and sourcing managers who need frame-shaped EMI gaskets are invited to contact SSP or email Dominic Testo for this cost-saving white paper. SSP makes conductive elastomers, including mold-able EMI silicones. The Ballston Spa, New York (USA) company also [...]


Nickel-Aluminum EMI Silicone Resists Galvanic Corrosion

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) supplies a nickel-aluminum silicone that provides EMI shielding, resists galvanic corrosion, and offers an offset to Chomerics 6502. SSP-2529 is ideal for marine environments and is available in molded sheets and extruded profiles. SSP’s dark gray, 68-durometer shielding silicone also has shorter lead times and lower minimum order quantities (MOQs) than the competition.  The shielding effectiveness for SSP-2529 was tested at over 100 dB between 20 [...]
