Press release date: May 30, 2014

Chicago, IL – Methode Electronics, Inc. (NYSE: MEI), a global developer of custom engineered and application specific products and solutions, today announced the release of the new medical grade shrinkMate™ shielding heat-shrink tubing. Using clear medical grade polyester, the lightweight tubing shrinks over the object when heat is applied and forms a perfect conductive seal around the object, delivering EMI, RFI, and ESD shielding without the use of solder.

In the sensitive medical equipment environment, EMI, RFI, and ESD leaking can lead to disturbances which may endanger the health or life of patients. It is therefore of the highest importance that leakage does not occur, and demanding standards are enforced on medical device manufacturers. shrinkMate™ cable shielding can help meet the tough requirements of this industry by providing easy-to-apply shielding at a common point of leakage - the cable to connector joint.

The conductive tubing shrinks with a heat gun, oven, or any other conventional heat source, and when the tubing is set, the inner conductive layer provides an electrical connection between the outside surfaces of the objects that are joined by the tubing. Connections can easily be made between components of various sizes and shapes, and between solderable and non-solderabale surfaces.

shrinkMate™ cable shielding tubing is also available in MIl-I-23053/5 polyolefin tubing. All shrinkMate™ products are RoHS and REACH compliant.
