Surround™ EMI/RFI Shielding Formulations
Surround™ is an electrically conductive, long fiber thermoplastic material formulated specifically to work in critical electronic applications such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), medical devices, and wire and cable and electrical connectors. These formulations provide electromagnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) shielding at a weight reduction of up to 40% as compared to aluminum, copper, and other metals. They also can eliminate additional painting steps to an application in need of shielding protection.
Additional benefits and features of Surround formulations vary depending on the reinforcing additives used, such as nickel-coated carbon fiber and stainless steel fiber. A variety of base resins can be used to create Surround formulations to either concentrate (intended to let down at the press) or direct-to-mold fiber loadings.
