Style AG-613-40-V1 is an electrically-conductive shielding gasket material that is a flame-retardant 40 durometer (Shore A) nickel-coated graphite-filled silicone elastomer which protects electronic equipment and produces shielding against radio frequency interference (RFI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI). AG-613-40-V1 nickel-coated graphite-filled silicone is conforms to the UL-94 V1 flammability rating. It has a volume resistivity of .05 ohm/cm with a shielding effectiveness of greater than 113 dB.
AG-613-40-V1 is similar to our other electrically-conductive nickel-coated graphite-filled flame-retardant elastomers such as AG-613-60-V0 (silicone) and AG-613-60-V1 (silicone) which conform to UL-94 V0 and V1 respectively. This nickel-coated graphite-filled silicone can be converted into die-cut and water jet cut parts or provided as sheets of different sizes and continuous rolls. The sheet sizes available for AG-613-40-V1 are 15” x 20”, 10” x 20”, 12” x 12”, and 10” x 10” with continuous rolls also available. The material can be provided in a black color.

The chart below compares the electrically-conductive nickel-coated graphite-filled silicone to other filler materials that act as electromagnetic interference (EMI)/radio frequency interference (RFI) shielding. We offer the nickel-coated graphite-filled silicone which acts as a great sealant against environmental factors and large temperatures ranges. When compared to other fillers such as silver-coated copper, silver-coated glass, and silver-coated aluminum, nickel-coated graphite has a conductivity that is comparable to its silver counterparts.
|Silver||Extremely Conductive||.0009 ohms/cm||Most Expensive|
|Silver Coated Aluminum||Super Conductive||.003 ohms/cm||More Expensive|
|Silver Coated Copper||Super Conductive||.001 ohms/cm||Expensive|
|Silver Coated Glass||Very Conductive||.006 ohms/cm||Less Expensive|
|*Nickel Coated Graphite||Conductive||.01 ohms/cm||Least Expensive*|
