Conductive fabric over foam gaskets and conductive foam

FABRIC OVER FOAM
Metallised fabric is made from nylon or polyester and covered with a thin metallisation. To ensure good mechanical strength and high corrosion resistance, the metallisation is protected by a conductive varnish. The fabric is then applied to extruded foam. Gaskets made in this way offer flexibility, lightness and good shielding effectiveness.

Applications :
- Cabinets 19", Subracks, Cases & Front Panels
- Backplane I/O
- Grounding contacts
- Access hatches


CONDUCTIVE FOAM
Conductive foam is made from open cell polyurethane, filled with nickel. This fabric is covered with Copper/Nickel metallization. This foam has the special characteristic of conducting along the 3 axes (x, y, z).

Applications :
- Backplane I/O
- Grounding contacts
- Access hatches
