  • SOFT-SHIELD 3500 Low Closure Force EMI Strip Gaskets - Rectangle Profiles

    The SOFT-SHIELD® 3500 fabric over foam (fof) product family are a group of low-closure force EMI/EMC gaskets. SS3500 offers a low cost competitive solution for EMI shielding and electrical grounding in sheer and compression.

    The SS3500 product family is comprised of conductive fabric wrapped around open cell foam. This wrap around technology grounds the gasket from point to point, ultimately eliminating an EMI/EMC gap.

    SS3500 typically requires less then 1lb/in (0.175/ mm) closure force, making it effective for low closure force applications. SS3500 takes less than 15% compression set. This is less than most other FOF’s on the market resulting in reliable/ repeatable shielding performance. SS3500 is an excellent alternative shielding solution to traditional spring finger type products.

    The SS3500 product family is one of the most versatile EMI fof products offered to the market. Depending on mechanical and shielding requirements, the SS3500 can be made with different conductive jackets. Nickel-plated taffeta, Nickel-plated rip-stop polyester, halogen free nickel-plated rip-stop, etc. New geometric profiles are designed and released to the market on a regular basis. Profiles are engineered to optimize mechanical form fit and function while optimizing electrical performance. This technical data sheet will address the most common type FOF. Chomerics has to offer to market. Contact Chomerics for any other special design requirements and an updated profile list.

  • SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Low Closure Force EMI Strip Gaskets - Rectangular Strips

    SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series EMI gaskets are designed to meet the stringent shielding and mechanical performance requirements of today’s commercial electronic enclosures, medical electronics, factory automation equipment, reprographics and grounding applications. A growing number of standard profiles and sizes provide flexibility when selecting a gasket for a specific application. Custom profiles or sizes can also be produced.

    Each SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series gasket consists of an electrically conductive fabric jacket over a highly compressible urethane foam core. The nickel-plated, woven nylon rip-stop jacket is selfterminating when cut. Chosen for its excellent compressibility, the foam core typically requires less than 1 lb/in (0.175 N/mm) closure force, making it especially useful for thin-walled plastic enclosures. Standard pressure-sensitive adhesive attachment tape (PSA) makes SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series gaskets a user-friendly and cost-effective design solution.

    Every profile in the SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series can be provided in a General Duty version or a UL 94V-0 rated version, as needed, with no difference in performance.

    Features

    • Choice of General Duty or UL 94V-0 rated versions
    • Typically require < 1 lb/in (0.175 N/mm) closure force – 5 times lower than other gaskets
    • > 90 dB attenuation from 20 MHz to 10 GHz
    • Asymmetrical profiles, as well as “C”, “V”, “P”, “D” shapes
    • No performance degradation after 10,000 compression cycles
    • Wide release liner for easy removal
    • Kiss-cut parts on release sheets for easy “peel-and-stick”
    • grounding applications
    • Self-terminating jacket – no sharp edges
    • Tested to Bellcore GR-64-Core Airborne Contaminants requirements
    • Custom lengths, custom profiles
    Benefits
    • Cost-effective
    • Alternative to BeCu fingerstock
    • Pick and place installation
    • Technical application support
    • Global distributor/fabricator network
    • Application-ready custom parts (die-cut, spliced, etc.)


    Note: Compression/deflection curves are typical. Dimensions shown do not include PSA thickness (0.005 inch typically). Actual size shown with PSA strip. All SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series profiles can be supplied in either General Duty or UL 94V-0 rated versions.

    Note: Compression/deflection curves are typical. Dimensions shown do not include PSA thickness (0.005 inch typically). Actual size shown with PSA strip. All SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series profiles can be supplied in either General Duty or UL 94V-0 rated versions.

  • SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Low Closure Force EMI Strip Gaskets - Triangular Strips

    SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series EMI gaskets are designed to meet the stringent shielding and mechanical performance requirements of today’s commercial electronic enclosures, medical electronics, factory automation equipment, reprographics and grounding applications. A growing number of standard profiles and sizes provide flexibility when selecting a gasket for a specific application. Custom profiles or sizes can also be produced.

    Each SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series gasket consists of an electrically conductive fabric jacket over a highly compressible urethane foam core. The nickel-plated, woven nylon rip-stop jacket is selfterminating when cut. Chosen for its excellent compressibility, the foam core typically requires less than 1 lb/in (0.175 N/mm) closure force, making it especially useful for thin-walled plastic enclosures. Standard pressure-sensitive adhesive attachment tape (PSA) makes SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series gaskets a user-friendly and cost-effective design solution.

    Every profile in the SOFT-SHIELD 5000 Series can be provided in a General Duty version or a UL 94V-0 rated version, as needed, with no difference in performance.

    Features

    • Choice of General Duty or UL 94V-0 rated versions
    • Typically require < 1 lb/in (0.175 N/mm) closure force – 5 times lower than other gaskets
    • > 90 dB attenuation from 20 MHz to 10 GHz
    • Asymmetrical profiles, as well as “C”, “V”, “P”, “D” shapes
    • No performance degradation after 10,000 compression cycles
    • Wide release liner for easy removal
    • Kiss-cut parts on release sheets for easy “peel-and-stick”
    • grounding applications
    • Self-terminating jacket – no sharp edges
    • Tested to Bellcore GR-64-Core Airborne Contaminants requirements
    • Custom lengths, custom profiles
    Benefits
    • Cost-effective
    • Alternative to BeCu fingerstock
    • Pick and place installation
    • Technical application support
    • Global distributor/fabricator network
