Electrically conductive solid silicone sheet from ElastaPro is fabricated into gaskets and used in electrical cabinets and printed circuit boards (PCBs). These solid silicone sheet materials are also fabricated into elastomeric shielding gaskets that provide resistance against electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI).
Conductive silicones are compounds that combine the advantages of silicone rubber with the electrical properties of metals. Silicone offers thermal stability over a wide temperature range and resist water, ozone, and ultraviolet (UV) light. When filled with tiny metal particles, silicones combine environmental sealing with EMI shielding.
Conductive solid silicone sheeting from ElastaPro comes in the following durometer.
This solid silicone sheeting is easily die cut and provides a superior gasket and sealing solution. Thicknesses range from .020” to .375”. This product is black in color
Some conductive silicone sheets use metal or metal-coated particles as the rubber filler material. The dielectric strength of silicone rubber depends on the specimen. High voltage silicone rubber is a highly specialized material and not typical of conductive silicone rubber sheet.
