Soft Gaskets Keep EMI At Bay

Serving to provide protection against EMI in wireless systems and devices, Gore-Shield GS8000 is a soft, highly conductive gasket material. It’s suitable for use where conformability, excellent cavity-to-cavity EMI shielding and superior conductivity at low compressive forces are required. Less than 3.4 N/cm of pressure is required to compress the gaskets from a nominal starting thickness of 1 mm to a compressed thickness of 0.4 mm. At 0.40 mm thickness, dc resistance is 10 mž. The conformable gaskets can accommodate a variation in gap heights of up to 2 mm. They consist of a nickel-plated base polymer backed with a thin foil layer for dimensional stability and an electrically conductive, pressure-sensitive adhesive for easy installation.
