Atlantic Gasket Revamps Site with EMI/RFI Products

SSP-502-30 Roll Material (4)Atlantic Gasket continues to keep up with the growing demands of different markets, and this time, we’ve revamped our website with a new section for EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) and RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) shielding materials.  These silicone and fluorosilicone rubbers are filled with a variety of metallic fillers to allow them to be electrically conductive and protect sensitive electronic equipment and other products.  These fillers include Nickel-Aluminum, Nickel-Graphite, Silver-Aluminum, Silver-Copper, Silver-Glass, and Silver-Nickel.

 

 

IMG_5645EMI & RFI shielding gaskets are important in serving a range of industries, such as military, aerospace, automotive, medical, and more.  We can provide silicones and fluorosilicones that meet the MIL-G-83528/MIL-DTL-83528 specification and others that are QPL listed.  Our EMI/RFI materials come in a wide variety of thicknesses, durometers, sheet sizes, rolls, and colors to help suit your needs.  This variety allows us to provide a range of die-cut parts, waterjet-cut parts, stripping, roll goods, sheets, and more.

The EMI/RFI silicones and fluorosilicones not only protect against electromagnetic interference and radio frequency interference but also the typical environmental factors, such as silicone’s natural resistance to a large temperature range.  For harsh environments with solvents and fuels, fluorosilicone is the answer to your issues.  The combination of the rubber along with the internal metallic fillers allows these EMI/RFI shielding materials to be a fantastic option for protecting sensitive equipment for your next project!

North Slope of Alaska

We recently received a request from a customer who needed a large diameter 60 durometer Nitrile gasket to be delivered to the North Slope of Alaska the next day.  The plane, full of emergency oil equipment was taking off for the job site at noon the next day and this gasket had to be on that plane.  We cut the part on our waterjet cutter and shipped it to the customer the same day so that it would arrive by 10:30 the next morning.  The package was delivered the next morning as promised and was placed on the customer’s chartered flight that was leaving at noon.  This was just another day at Atlantic Gasket.  When a customer has a requirement and needs parts fast, our first questions are “Tell us what you need” and “How quickly do you need them”.  We have most common rubber and gasketing materials in stock and in-house waterjet cutting capability that allows us to cut any shape part within minutes of receiving a CAD file.  Same day shipments and next day delivery is not an unusual request.  Please contact us and let us know how we can make your life a little easier.  We are always glad to help.
