Conductive EMI Shielding Tapes from Adhesives Research
EMI shielding tapes.
Glen Rock, PA — Adhesives Research is offering highly electrically conductive tapes, ARclad® 90038 and Flexshield® 8269, for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding applications in medical electronic products.

ARclad 90038 is a 2.4-mil highly conductive, acrylic-based, pressure-sensitive EMI shielding tape that has a 1-ounce tin-plated copper foil backing. Its shielding effectiveness ranges from 80dB to 95dB in the 1-to-18GHz frequency range. The tin-plated backing of this pressure-sensitive EMI shielding tape can be easily soldered and is resistant to corrosion and oxidation. It is supported by a polyester release liner that is reportedly easy to die-cut and apply.

The company also offers Flexshield 8269, a 4-mil, highly conductive pressure-sensitive EMI shielding tape that incorporates a metallized fabric carrier. Shielding effectiveness is 80dB to 90dB in the 1-to-18GHz frequency range.The tape also offers flexibility and conformability, resistance to cracking from repeated flexing, and weight reduction advantages.

Both products are appropriate for use as die-cut components in medical electronics and instrumentation, including diagnostic meters for home and hospital use, hospital equipment, test instruments, and ground planes and interconnects for grounding applications.
