electrically conductive elastomerLaird Technologies, Inc, expanded its electrically conductive elastomer (EcE) product line with the release of its new EcE72 silicone gasket. Utilizing both conductive and non-conductive materials, the gasket is a nickel/graphite filled silicone elastomer that affords desirable EMI shielding properties and conductivity. Consisting of pure silicone, the gasket provides a stronger environmental seal at temperature extremes, according to the company. It is flame retardant (developed to meet UL94 V-0 standards), and mold and mildew resistant.

“The EcE72 silicone gasket is a very cost-effect EMI shielding product. It is designed to meet UL 94 V-0 flammability requirements, and is mold and mildew resistant; making it ideal for outdoor environments,” said John Slagle, Laird Technologies Product Line Manager for North America and Europe - ECE, FIP, and Absorbers. “It may be die-cut, molded, or extruded in various shapes, sizes, and profiles, allowing it to fit a number of applications for industrial equipment, telecom enclosures, and demanding military applications.”

EcE72 is appropriate for applications that require EMI shielding above 100 dB along with an environmental seal. The company asserts the gasket also demonstrates desirable reliability with a compression set below 20 percent.
