Conductive Silicone is used for its heat resistant properties and can be produced in many different forms such as sheets, molded parts, die-cuts or strips. These conductive elastomers are water resistant, can eliminate static electricity, and act as an absorber at high frequencies.
API’s Spectrum Control line of conductive elastomers are composed
of silicon rubber using its heat resistant property. Unique
features of conductive elastomers include water resistance
and elimination of static electricity, which is different from
general foam gaskets. It also acts as an absorber at high
frequency showing 60dB shielding at 30 MHz ~ 10GHz.
Excellent electrical conductivity, grounding and shielding
are provided. Due to its superior properties conductive
elastomers are often used in military equipment. They
can be produced in many forms such as sheets, molded
parts, die-cuts or strips.
- Good shielding
- Excellent water resistance
- Control static electric discharge
- High frequency absorber
