MatSci50x50  EMI/RFI Shielding


Rapid Composites can incorporate precision-expanded metals and foils to meet your exact requirements for shielding, electrical conductivity and thermal transfer properties. Our in-situ laminated shielding materials can be incorporated into a thermoplastic or thermoset matrix, providing superior performance that does not flake off with time. This is an effective shield against EMI/RFI emissions. Formed from sheet metal, the shape, pattern and open areas are engineered to match the needs of your particular application. More than 35 different metals can be custom expanded to shield against specific wavelength spectrum’s. They can be laminated, coated and sometimes plated. We offer some of the only composite structures capable of being soldered.

Our experience further extends into co-laminated, dielectrically insulated foils and flexible PCB’s acting as conductive traces, thereby eliminating point-to-point wiring connections. These materials wrap and conform to almost any shape. Designers are free to be creative with complex surfaced geometry.

 

Notable Advantages:

• High Electrical Conductivity
• High Thermal Conductivity
• No Flaking
• Excellent Laminar Bond
