Nickel-aluminum fluorosilicone meets EMI specs

Nickel-aluminum fluorosilicone that combines EMI shielding with fuel, solvent and galvanic corrosion resistance, has been independently tested to 40 GHz and can be used with military electronic products that need to meet MIL-DTL-461 5.18 RE103 requirements for controlling electromagnetic interference (EMI). SSP’s EMI fluorosilicone has also been independently tested to MIL-DTL-83528 for elastomeric shielding gaskets, and to ASTM E595 for outgassing.

Soft Tissue Compliant Silicones For Medical Devices

ExSil silicone nanocomposites are the first in a series of ultrahigh elongation materials that achieve their unique mechanical properties via a radically different mechanism than traditional silicones. Traditional silicones rely on formation of chemically crosslinked chain networks for their elastomeric properties. ExSil nanocomposites, on the other hand, rely on mechanically interlocked polymer chains.

Exploration Of LPBd In HCR silicone

Silicone has always been a superior polymer for heat stability. Its ability to withstand higher temperatures than any other polymer has prompted its growth in high heat applications, such as automotive. Many high temperature applications are also exposed to chemicals. Many VMQ silicones alone cannot meet the chemical resistance specification on these applications. Therefore, specialty fluoropolymers are used in these applications where high temperature and chemical resistance are needed.
