Engineers from the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) have identified a new, environmentally friendly, and conductive gasket that guards against moisture intrusion and subsequent corrosion.
With approximately 4,000 aircraft in the fleet, the use of the AvDEC[TM] conductive gasket will eliminate the requirement for using chromated polysulfide sealants, thus saving thousands of dollars in labor, material and disposal costs.
VAQ-131 was one of two operational squadrons selected to conduct a lead the fleet "at-sea" demonstration of the AvDec[TM] conductive gasket technology.
The most common form of these shielding devices is the conductive gasket
that provides continuity of a metallic housing at openings, corners, edges, etc.
To enhance EMI performance, a conductive gasket
is located at the back of the cage to improve the electrical conductivity between the cage and the optical transceiver.

Nypro-Chomerics Alliance Provides Conductive Gaskets
The material is said to be well suited for formed-in-place conductive gaskets
and grounding connections, and may be used as RF and EMI shielding in aerospace and industrial electronics applications.
These products are the latest to use the 3M eCAP technology, a breakthrough in pressure-sensitive-adhesive tape and conductive gaskets
EmiTherm manufactures EMI shielding materials such as dispensed form-in-place, molded and extruded conductive gaskets
, and is a converter of thermal materials, serving electronics manufacturers throughout Malaysia and the ASEAN region.
3M's proprietary technology employed in this product represents a breakthrough in pressure-sensitive-adhesive tape and conductive gaskets
Their distinct design, packaging and flexibility also provide customers with a unique and low cost alternative to more antiquated shielding methods, such as conductive gaskets
