Laird Intros New EMI Shielding Product Line
Extruded shielding gasket.
St. Louis, MO — Laird Technologies, Inc. has released its new family of multi-extrusion shielding gaskets, EMI Gemini. The new product line is a convergence of a thin, electrically-conductive filler elastomer gasket layer and an inner, non-conductive silicone coated core gasket.

The conductive material portion of the gasket, usually loaded with silver, aluminum, nickel or copper is greatly reduced due to the substitution of the silicone core. The reduction of the conductive material lowers the total cost. Extruded in various sizes and profiles, the gasket retains strong EMI protection performance with a lower deflection while sealing against environmental influences such as moisture and dust.

The gasket is manufactured in parallel using a ram and/or screw-type extrusion equipment. The extrusion equipment incorporates a complex fixture that contains specific tools, depending on the profile. This combination with the multi-extrusion of silicones in many applications optimizes the performance-to-cost ratio to the fullest extent by leveraging material costs and extending the longevity of the assemblies.

The shielding gaskets are suitable for military, medical, and commercial applications requiring application-specific high shielding requirements.
