Flame Retardant Shielding Silicones for EMI Gaskets

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) supplies flame-retardant shielding silicones that meet the requirements of the UL-94 V1 flammability standard. SSP’s electrically-conductive elastomers are filled with nickel-graphite particles for resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and provide reliable, cost-effective EMI shielding and environmental sealing. These flame retardant silicones are supplied as ready-to-mold compounds, fully-cured sheets, and continuous rolls for EMI gasket [...]


Low-Durometer Silicones for Sealing and Insulation

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) supplies low-durometer silicones for medical, military, aerospace, and other demanding applications. These softer elastomers are available in durometers ranging from 10 to 30 (Shore A). Products include platinum-cured, medical-grade silicones; various military and aerospace silicones; and a 30-duromter EMI shielding silicone that’s filled with silver-aluminum particles.  SSP supplies these and other silicone elastomers as continuous rolls, molded [...]


Silicone Rubber with High Flex-Fatigue Resistance

Silicones resist a wide range of service temperatures, but they don’t always offer strong flex-fatigue resistance – a measure of an elastomer’s ability to withstand repeated flexing or bending. Flex-fatigue resistance is an important requirement for military and aerospace applications, however, so design engineers and technical buyers need to source silicone rubber with care. High temperatures, harsh environments, and excessive cycling can also contribute to elastomeric [...]


Defense Electronics Features SSP Particle-Filled Silicones

Particle-filled silicones from Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) are the subject of a feature article in Defense Electronics, a leading resource for design and development engineers who work for the U.S. military, homeland security, other government agencies, and defense contractors. In Particle-Filled Silicones Satisfy EMI Shielding Needs, SSP Product Manager Dominic J. Testo explains how SSP’s shielding silicones combine high levels of EMI shielding with ease-of-use, an important [...]


Extruded EMI Elastomers White Paper Describes New SSP Capabilities

Specialty Silicone Products (SSP) is announcing the release of a new white paper that describes the ISO 9001:2008 certified company’s EMI extrusion capabilities. Recently, SSP added a 40-ton Loomis extruder at its Ballston Spa, New York facility. This equipment supports SSP’s entry into the global marketplace for extruded EMI elastomers and provides product engineers, material converters, and gasket fabricators with important new opportunities.
