Laird Technologies Launches EcE72 Silicone Gasket for Applications Requiring EMI Shielding

Published on 2011-09-28. Author : SpecialChem

St. Louis, Missouri, USA -- Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, has expanded its electrically conductive elastomer (EcE) product line with the release of its new EcE72 silicone gasket.

Utilizing both conductive and non-conductive materials, the EcE72 gasket is a nickel/graphite filled silicone elastomer that affords excellent EMI shielding properties and conductivity. Consisting of pure silicone, the gasket provides a stronger environmental seal at temperature extremes. It is flame retardant (developed to meet UL94 V-0 standards), and mold and mildew resistant.

"The EcE72 silicone gasket is a very cost-effect EMI shielding product. It is designed to meet UL 94 V-0 flammability requirements, and is mold and mildew resistant; making it ideal for outdoor environments," said John Slagle, Laird Technologies Product Line Manager for North America and Europe - ECE, FIP, and Absorbers. "It may be die-cut, molded, or extruded in various shapes, sizes, and profiles, allowing it to fit a number of applications for industrial equipment, telecom enclosures, and demanding military applications."

EcE72 is ideal for applications that require EMI shielding above 100dB along with an environmental seal. It also demonstrates great reliability with a compression set below 20%.

As an industry-leading EMI solutions provider, Laird Technologies provides innovative board and system-level solutions with a wide variety of materials and form factors for high-tech industries and applications around the world.
