Conductive (EMI) Elastomers

CONDUCTIVE EMI-SHIELDING ELASTOMERS & THERMALLY CONDUCTIVE ELASTOMERS

RUBBERCRAFT'S EMI SHIELDING CUSTOM-FORMULATED ELASTOMERS AND SYSTEMS HAVE OUTSTANDING PHYSICAL PROPERTIES, INCLUDING LONG LIFE IN CRITICAL APPLICATIONS, HIGH CHEMICAL, FUEL AND SOLVENT RESISTANCE AND A WIDE USABLE TEMPERATURE RANGE.

Our ability to combine EMI shielding and traditional sealing technology, integrated with customer components, provides electrical conductivity between mating surfaces while ensuring environmental protection as well as vibration isolation. Shielding performance is outstanding for EMI, RFI and high frequency emission.

EMI requirements can be met by molding in place, extruding continuous lengths, die cutting from sheet and vulcanizing to metal, composite, and a wide range of other materials.

In addition to our custom material formulations, Rubbercraft is one of a few manufacturers certified on the QPL for all MIL-DTL-83528 material types. We manufacture and test our materials at our state of the art facility in Long Beach, CA and we can fabricate your custom designs in multiple locations.

With our unique development and production capabilities, Rubbercraft is able to formulate to customer specific shielding requirements while also meeting your environmental application needs.  Designs and material formulations can be tailored to your individual application.

THERMAL MANAGEMENT

High speed processors and high density electronic packages generate significant heat that can compromise the performance and lifetime of computing devices and electronic systems. Rubbercraft has developed proprietary thermal elastomers to help protect your electronics through effective thermal management.

Rubbercraft's elastomers are filled with thermally conductive materials and shielding, which remove and distribute heat buildup for reliable and efficient system operations. Materials can be formulated to either isolate heat or effectively conduct and transfer the heat buildup.

Our elastomer thermal pads fill the gaps between the heat generating components and heat dissipating surfaces (heatsinks) to maximize thermal dissaption, while forming an electrically-insulating layer between the two surfaces.  These materials can be used with or without a reinforcing carrier.

With unique development and production capabilities, Rubbercraft is able to custom formulate unique thermal management materials and designs. Configurations and material formulations can be tailored to your individual application.
