Conductive Coating is an excellent way to provide EMI Shielding to plastic enclosures. As a secondary process it provides a means to add coating later in production, allows rapid prototypes to be shielded and can provide varying performance dependent on requirement.
Wet-spray coating allows complex internal geometries to be coated with minimal tooling costs.
With possible coating thickness below 12.5μm strict weight restrictions can be achieved with plastic enclosures.
Surface resistivity can be < 0.015 Ohm/square with excellent attenuation offering outstanding shielding performance.
Why Conductive Coating?
No Expensive Metalwork
Provides excellent shielding performance on plastic moulded, SLA or FDM enclosures. Eliminating the need for costly machining.
A very low film thickness when applied to plastics allow for significant weight savings.
Excellent EMI Protection
Silver Coating provides shielding satisfying the most rigorous EMC testing requirements.
