SSP Offers Replacements for GORE® EMI Shielding

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) is offering innovative replacements for Gore’s discontinued line of EMI shielding materials. Recently, SSP learned that W.L. Gore & Associates has announced the end-of-life for three well-known shielding, gasketing, and grounding products: GS2100, GS5200, and GS8000. If you’ve been buying these GORE® products for years, now is the time to find a new supplier you can trust.Already, SSP has received dozens inquiries and is working with former [...]


Low Outgassing Silicones for EMI Shielding

Low outgassing silicones for EMI shielding meet ASTM E 595 requirements for outgas testing and help protect electrical equipment and electronics against electromagnetic interference (EMI). Outgassing, the release of a gas trapped in a solid material, is a problem in high-vacuum environments like outer space because released gases can condense upon and cloud optics. EMI can disturb or disrupt the electronic circuits used in spacecraft, satellites, and high-altitude aircraft.    [...]


Reminder: EMI Shielding Gaskets Webinar is Available

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) is offering an in-depth EMI shielding webinar for on-demand viewing. EMI/RFI Gasketing: Outside the Box Solutions to Protect What’s in the Box is available on YouTube and contains valuable lessons about protecting enclosures against electromagnetic interference (EMI). SSP’s webinar dispels myths about metal-filled elastomers, examines common drawing specifications, and describes SpecShield™ silicones for reducing costs and improving [...]


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 [...]


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 [...]
