Electrically Conductive Paints and Coatings
Electrically conductive coatings for plastic enclosure electromagnetic shielding are growing in popularity as concerns over weight increase for a variety of EMI applications including: military, aerospace, automotive, telecon, medical and semiconductors. Conductive coatings are generally applied by spraying a layer of electrically conductive paint, which is heavily filled with a conductive metal such as: silver, nickel, copper and a variety of coated or specialty powders and flakes.
Resin type form (paints): acrylic, epoxy, polyester and polyurethane.
A comprehensive range of caulks, adhesives, coatings and greases containing conductive particles for all of your shielding and continuous electrical path requirements.
Electrically Conductive Silicone/Polythioether Sealant or Gap Fillers
Designed for applications which require EMI shielding performance and weatherproofing.
Types of electrically conductive sealants include:
silver filled in silicone
nickel-plated graphite filled in silicone
silver-plated glass filled sealant in silicone
silver-plated copper filled in silicone
VOC-free, silver-plated copper filled in silicone
silver-plated aluminium filled in silicone
silver-plated aluminium filled in polythioether
nickel plated aluminium filled in silicone
silver-plated copper filled in polyisobutylene
silver-plated copper filled polyolefin
Conductive compound applications include:
Component or hardware grounding
Engine control modules (ECMs)
Electrically Conductive Grease
Conductive greases can be used where sliding or movement might occur between two metal parts and grounding or where RF screening is required. Applications include: surface-to-surface particularly metal-to-metal sliding contact areas requiring continuous electrically conductive paths, such as a switch, and silver-nickel filled silicone polymer designed for effective anti-wear of flanges and airframes.
Fillers: Ag (Silver) & Ag/Ni (Silver\Nickel).
Resin type form: Silicone
