TechEtch 2500 Series: A New Standard in Shielding Effectiveness

In the world of EMI shielding solutions, the TechEtch 2500 Fabric Over Foam series represents a successful integration of design precision and advanced technological capabilities. The ID Group is pleased to offer this new product to industries seeking innovative and effective EMI RFI shielding for specific applications. Let’s take a look at the unique features of this UL-94 V-0 certified halogen-free fabric over foam series.

Material and Design

The TechEtch 2500 series gaskets are designed for robust electrical performance, essential for high-level EMI/RFI shielding. Its metalized fabric over foam construction features an electrically conductive nickel-plated copper nylon ripstop fabric layered over a resilient open-cell core made of polyurethane. The material selection and design of the 2500 Series go beyond efficacy; they ensure low compression and surface resistivity while being capable of withstanding temperatures ranging from -40°F to 158°F (-40°C to 70°C).

The innovative bonding of the conductive substrate to the foam core assures self-termination of the gaskets, whether provided in standard or custom-cut lengths, enhancing their ease of use and versatility. Moreover, adherence to RoHS, REACH, and UL 94 V-0 Halogen-free standards ensures that these gaskets are not only effective but also environmentally friendly.

All these design intricacies not only ensure the product’s longevity but also position it as a preferred choice across a spectrum of applications, embodying a blend of technical excellence and environmental responsibility.
