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.
provides a similar feature and also the Fastite conductive gasket
that provides conductivity throughout the joint.
The most common form of these shielding devices is the conductive gasket
that provides continuity of a metallic housing at openings, corners, edges, etc.
The kits have an inner vented shield with a conductive gasket
to minimize RF leaks around the seam.
The conductive finish ventilated or plain steel covers slide into dedicated slots; conductive gaskets
in these slots prevent movement and ensure conductivity between all components of the assembly.
Filters may be configured to include EMI shielding honeycomb, conductive gaskets
, special metal finishes, tabs, handles, holes, flanges, spring clips, and other accessories to promote equipment compliance and ease installation.
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.
* Chomerics, a division of Parker Hannifin Corp., Woburn, MA, and Nypro Inc., Clinton, MA, have formed a strategic alliance to provide telecommunications customers with an efficient and integrated manufacturing resource for obtaining conductive gaskets
. The alliance will streamline the production of insert-molded conductive products against electromagnetic interference in cellular phones and other electronic devices.
Rather than a foam core wrapped with a conductive fabric, some products such as Laird's knitted conductive gaskets
have a knitted covering made from conducting fibers or metal wire.
Shielded connectors, available in many shapes and sizes, are designed to work well with conductive gaskets
around the flanges.
Because of concerns about the effects of corrosion, the materials selected for use in conductive gaskets
are resistant to corrosion in most environments.
