1000 Series EMI Shielding Supershield

Gasket Material - Sheet and Extruded

Supershield is a silicone elastomer filled with conductive metal particles to provide high EMI shielding effectiveness and an environmental seal.

The Supershield family uses eight basic conducting media: Supershield 100 with carbon, Supershield 200 with nickel graphite, Supershield 300 with silver (low density), Supershield 400 with silver nickel, Supershield 500 with silver aluminum, Supershield 600 with silver plated glass, Supershield 700 with pure silver, and Supershield 800 with silver-plated copper.

Although the material specifications were determined at indicated durometers, other durometers are available from 40 to 80. Material specifications (with the exception of specific gravity) may vary at other durometers.

Supershield can be supplied in a variety of sheet sizes, standard extrusion sections, or as standard or custom die-cut gaskets.
