Here at AFT Fluorotec, we are well skilled in the application of electronic shielding processes to an array of different components from small hand held computers to military communication devices.
The main purpose of effective electronic shielding is to prevent electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI) from impacting sensitive electronics.
There is a huge range of applications that electronic shielding can be used for. In the medical industry, it can be used to protect medical and laboratory equipment to provide protection against interfering signals.
Another example of the practical use of electromagnetic shielding can be found in defence applications in the military industry. For example, wireless communication can be susceptible to electromagnetic interference, which can be fatal in a military setting. Encasing components conductive barrier can provide mitigation to these risks.
We have also seen an increase in applications in the automotive industry, as the amount of electric and electronic components in electric vehicles increases.
RFI & EMF SHIELDING
RFI & EMF electronic shield coatings provide a solution to blocking electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI), which can be responsible for reducing electronic signal strength and cause a loss of function and performance in a number of communication systems.
Often used in aerospace, military and hi-tech electrical components to mitigate the effects of RFI and EMI, these coatings are now increasingly available as a cost-effective solution for a wide range of commercial products.
WHY USE RFI & EMF SHIELDING COATINGS?
One of the key benefits of applying this coating via the spraying process is it allows the shielding material to be applied evenly on sections or on all of the substrate material.
We use copper or zinc in our spray coatings to block or reduce the effects of RFI and EMI. Our surface preparation solutions also allow for excellent adhesion, allowing us to apply a consistent film that won’t peel or flake off.
