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 [...]


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 [...]
