What’s the Best Way to Bond EMI O-Rings?

EMI O-rings combine environmental sealing with protection against electromagnetic interference (EMI). They’re made of silicone compounds that are filled with metal or metal-coated particles such as silver, silver-aluminum, or nickel-graphite. Gasket fabricators produce EMI O-rings by cutting EMI cord stock and then bonding the ends of cut lengths together. Applications for these donut-shaped seals include automotive, aerospace, industrial, medical, and military electronics. To convert EMI [...]


Silicone Greases: Advantages and Applications

Silicone greases provide parts lubrication and electrical insulation for applications that require resistance to demanding temperatures, pressures, and loads. These industrial lubricants have excellent fluidity at low temperatures and exhibit low volatility and good thermal stability at high temperatures. Compared to petroleum-based lubricants, silicone greases also have a wider useful temperature range.   Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) supplies silicone greases, lubricating [...]
