Reformulation of Supershield results in enhanced performance

Supershield, our range of high performance, premium quality, conductive elastomers, is currently undergoing a programme of research and development. This has already yielded significant enhancements in some major areas of performance. RFI Shielding Limited

Supershield is a family silicone, or fuel resistant fluorosilicone elastomers, loaded with highly conductive metal, or metal plated particles. The conductive fillers range from pure silver; which exhibits high electrical and thermal conductivity, and is suitable for EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) applications, through to nickel; which has a relatively low cost, and has improved resistance to galvanic corrosion, in hostile environment applications.

These types of gasket materials have been in wide use, particularly in military equipment, for decades. Our programme of reformulation is aimed at making them relevant for today's industrial and commercial applications. By taking advantage of improvements made in recent years, in the development of both elastomer, and filler technology, we are able to enhance some of the physical properties of Supershield, without reducing the electrical performance of the materials. An additional benefit is that the processability of the product has also been improved.

Supershield can be extruded in a wide range of cross-sectional profiles, compression moulded to exactly meet a customers specific design, or die-cut from sheet material. In a matter of weeks, we will also have the ability to injection mould gaskets.

In our first round of reformulations, we have targeted S800 (silver plated copper in silicone), S600 (silver plated glass in silicone), and S400 (nickel particles in silicone). Our team of technical engineers, whilst working on this project, have also identified areas for future new product development......watch this space!
