Thermoplastic Compounds for EMI Shielding

Thermoplastic compounds for EMI shielding offer reliability and value in a wide range of applications where electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is required. These specialty compounds give designers and processors tremendous flexibility and significant benefits over metals and metalized plastics.

This section contains EMI shielding effectiveness data for selected RTP Company compounds. It was generated utilizing ASTM D-4935: Standard Test Method for Measuring the Electromagnetic Shielding Effectiveness of Planar Materials.
