Virtually all high-speed connector applications, as well as the industries which rely on them, have evolved dramatically. The technology is very advanced, and therefore, so are the challenges and requirements.
As a result of these changing needs, Ultra-Vanshield Dual Elastomer EMI/RFI Shielding Gaskets are quickly becoming the standard for high-speed electronic connectors. Their design and advantages have proven to be far superior to previous types of shielding gaskets, such as traditional stamped metal gasket products.
One of the reasons for Ultra-Vanshield gaskets’ success over other products is the inherent limitation posed by these previously used gasket designs. Oftentimes, they lack the features necessary for long-term shielding, have high compression forces, and don’t offer high performance over the expected life of the connector.
Alternatively, Ultra-Vanshield shielding gaskets are able to withstand high temperatures and promise long life spans, providing high levels of shielding at frequencies up to and greater than 40GHz—with low compression forces. For the needs of today’s high data rate connectors used in networking and communications equipment, they are the most logical, affordable, effective choice.
Other design features and benefits include:
- Easy to mate and un-mate
- Reduced silver content = reduced costs
- Excellent conductive properties
- Resistance to deformation
- Optimal compression and aging properties
- Environmental sealing, along with extreme environment and abrasion resistance
- Continuously extruded high-strength silicone rubber core
- Available in a variety of conductive metals
- Custom finishing services available
Regardless of the specific application, Ultra-Vanshield shielding gaskets can be customized based on specific needs. Countless customers worldwide have come to find the absolute advantages they provide, and we expect them to continue to replace older methods, leading the way in the RFI/EMI market.
