Case Study: Nickel-Graphite Silicone for Rubber Keypads

Silicone rubber keypads are used in everything from smartphones and electronic devices to household appliances and remote controls. Within a rubber keypad, conductive carbon components known as “pills” are molded into key actuators. These millimeter-sized parts provide alternative to dome switches and are made from conductive silicones that contain carbon. Typically, conductive carbon pills are round, rectangular, or oval in shape.Carbon-Filled Silicones vs. Nickel-Graphite [...]


EMI Gasket Case Study: Appleton Marine

Appleton Marine designs and manufactures cranes, winches, windlasses, capstans, and custom designed equipment for commercial marine, offshore oil, and government applications. The Appleton, Wisconsin company also supports the U.S. Navy, which needs gaskets that combine reliable environmental resistance in marine environments with proven levels of shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI). MIL-DTL-83528, a U.S. military specification, defines requirements for conductive shielding [...]


Die Cut EMI/RFI Gaskets for Military, Aerospace, and Communications

Die cut gaskets that are made of EMI/RFI silicones combine strong environmental resistance with proven levels of shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency (RFI) interference. As a gasket fabrication process, die cutting combines the advantages of speed and consistency with lower production costs and less material waste.Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) supplies EMI/RFI silicones and fluorosilicones for die cut gaskets as compression molded sheets and continuous [...]
