ArmorLite™ Lightweight Microfilament Stainless Steel EMI/RFI Braid

ArmorLite™ Micro-Filament Stainless Steel Braid

Aircraft All-Up Weight (AUW) has met its match

ArmorLite™ is an expandable, flexible, high-strength, conductive stainless steel microfilament material designed for use as EMI/RFI shielding in high-performance interconnect cabling. The principal benefit of ArmorLite™ is its extreme light weight compared to conventional Tin/Copper shielding. By way of comparison, 100 feet of 5/8 inch ArmorLite™ is more than four pounds lighter than standard QQB A-A-59569 shielding. Plus ArmorLite™ offers superior temperature tolerance compared to lightweight non-metallic braiding such as AmberStrand®.
