Fibre Reinforced + EMI – Specialist Compounds

Range of EMI/RF Shielding Compounds

We have developed a range of silicone and fluorosilicone compounds designed to be effective at shielding electronic equipment from electromagnetic interference (EMI). Radio frequency electromagnetic radiation between the ranges 3 kHz to 300 GHz can lead to failure of electronic equipment.

With advances in technology and greater demand for electronic devices there are increasing numbers of EMI sources. Demand for these highly conductive elastomers has increased as the need to ensure safety and reliability in electronic equipment becomes a priority.

Technical Fibre Reinforced Compounds

We have developed a range of technical fibre-reinforced compounds which offer high tensile strength at low strain; combined with low compound viscosity for easy processing. Our fibre-filled compounds are designed for use in in applications where the part must be able to withstand extrusion at high differential pressures; for example, anti-extrusion seals.

Our extensive range of fibre-filled compounds include polychloroprene, nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR), hydrogenated nitrile-butadiene rubber (HNBR), fluoroelastomers (FKM) and Aflas compounds, which range in hardness from 70 IRHD / Shore A to 65 Shore D.
