The rubber is made conductive by incorporating small conductive metal particles throughout the material. It can provide an EMI-proof and watertight seal in narrow constructions. The material used to produce EMI shielding gaskets or
electrical conductive silicone rubber components by extrusion and is particularly suitable for the economical production of large series of extruded gaskets or moulded parts to produce low cost EMI shielding components. 

Electrically conductive rubbers are typically used for EMI applications. Also used for EMP protection, wave-guide applications and against static electricity. For military and aerospace applications often call for silver plated aluminium (Part number 5750) to meet Mil-G-83528C specifications. In military or aerospace, fluorosilicone versions may also be used due to their chemical and fuel resistance.

As the material shields high frequencies, electrically conductive rubber shows a shielding effect of 60 dB at 30MHz ~ 10GHz. Due to its excellent conductivity, grounding, and EMI shielding effect, it is well suited for military communications equipment. The rubber can be manufactured in various shapes such as sheets, molded parts, die-cut, strips, o-rings, etc.

What questions need to be answered to select the right material?
  1. What is the approximate shielding effectiveness you need to achieve for your application?
  2. What environment will this material be exposed to? Does the rubber need to be solvent or fuel resistant (fluorosilicone)?
  3. Are you looking for a semi-conductive/static dissipating material or is this a true EMI/RFI shielding application?
