Glenair Composite Metal Clad AmberStrand® EMI/RFI Braided Shielding

Composite Metal-Clad Light Weight EMI/RFI Braided Shielding

The Smart Way to Reduce Launch and Flight Weights in Aerospace Systems

For many applications, the cable shield is the most important element in controlling EMI. Unfortunately, metal shielding — especially when applied in multiple layers — can be extremely heavy. The opportunity to provide robust EMI shielding at a fraction of the weight is the principal advantage of composite thermoplastic braid made from AmberStrand® material. Transfer impedance test reports demonstrate the effectiveness of the material as compared to conventional metal solutions. Mechanical properties are comparable to other non-metallic materials (see Table I).
