V-shape EMI shielding gaskets 8700 series

V-shape EMI/RFI shielding gaskets for applications between lids, hinges and locks, and between door and doorframe.

The V-shape gaskets 8700 series are characterised by a very large compression range and low closure force. They come with a self-adhesive strip for easy mounting. The most common version is with conductive nickel over copper textile (Material code T).

The version with highly conductive Amucor foil (Material code A) is designed especially to be combined with aluminium and zinc-plated steel. To prevent loss of material and for easy shipping we cut the material to exact lengths. The longest length available is 2.5 meters.

V-shape gaskets are also available with a resilient foam rubber insert (i) for more compression just at the moment of closing. Please see the technical drawing below for more details.

The V-shape gasket 8700 series is flame retardant and can be supplied in a UL94V-0 compliant version. If applied as shown in Fig. 3, excellent shielding can be achieved without any permanent closure force. This construction prevents bending of doors, so the enclosure can be less rigid. It is also suitable for hinges and locks.

Examples of applications

The V-shape gasket is intended for applications between lids, hinges and locks as well as between a door and the doorframe. Of course many other applications can be imagined.
