Low-profile beryllium-copper (BeCu) shielding gaskets in a variety of formats are now available with stick-on, hook-and-stick-on, and clip-on mounting configurations. These gasket materials provide EMI/RFI shielding effectiveness (SE) of better than 100 dB and are supplied with free heights from 0.06 to 0.15 in. and can used to close packaging gaps from 0.030 to 0.120 in. The stick-on mounting format provide a reliable installation approach that can be used at ambient temperatures from -67 to +300°F. One side of the hook-and-stick-on gasket fits over the flange for additional mechanical security. Materials with an optional DiamondBack textured surface for high-frequency applications are available as an option.
