P-SHIELD® Conductive Fabrics from Polymer Science
Business partners contact Polymer Science primarily for adhesives, tapes and coating solutions. We often receive inquiries for other materials including our electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and grounding materials for other uses. Conductive fabrics without adhesives are used in many industries including aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics and electric vehicles. As gasket materials, the quality of our conductive textiles is prized. Whether you are developing a new product or need to enhance an existing design, Polymer Science works with companies of all sizes to find solutions.
Conductive Fabrics without Adhesives
Our EMI shielding fabrics without adhesives are generally used to form air gaskets. Compared to fabric over foam, conductive fabric air gaskets provide lower compression force. Without adhesives, our fabrics are easy to handle and fully repositionable as gaskets. Conductive fabrics can be supplied as rolls to be die cut. Some business partners choose the quality of our conductive fabrics and utilize a different adhesive during their manufacturing process.
Unlike some other shielding materials, conductive fabrics are wrinkle-free and non-abrasive to other surfaces. The most popular application is as air gaskets, also referred to as air loops. As air gaskets, conductive fabric contours to the shape of housings and conforms to components. Lightweight fabrics are exceptionally easy to handle and repositionable, simplifying the manufacturing processes. Conductive textiles offer a corrosion-free barrier within electronic components and provide good conductivity in the X, Y and Z axes. Effective across a wide frequency range, our fabrics include Electrically Conductive Woven Fabric, Ripstop Fabric and Gold Plated Electrically Conductive Woven Fabric.
Whatever your design requires, Polymer Science provides responsive, customer-focused solutions. Beyond shielding, fabrics provide some insulation and static dissipation properties. Fabrics may assist in shock absorption and help in light blocking within sensitive housings. Our staff is very responsive to inquiries and helps our clients identify the best fabric to suit their application and manufacturing process.
