Central Coating Offers New Generation in FIP Gasketing

West Boylston, MA — Central Coating is now offering the latest generation in FIP Gasketing using the TriShield dispensing technology.

The benefits of Trishield® include lower compression force, shorter production time and lower cost. The newest material  is called Trishield Soft®, which is a modified version of traditional Trishield® gasket. It is co-dispensed with both conductive and non-conductive material. The technique, however, remains unchanged as a  precise string of electrically-conductive silicon rubber is dispensed onto a carrier and is then formed into the characteristic shape.

Central Coating employs a unique technology to apply the material in a triangular and wave shaped gasket.  Materials applied include silicone nickel, nickel graphite and soft nickel graphite. Trishield®Soft is available in gasket heights of 1.2 - 2.5 mm, and in a range of metal fillers including Ni/C, Ag/Ni or Ni/Al, depending on customer requirements. Application of these materials  results in up to 70% lower compression force and a low compression set.

Advantages of TriShield includes:

• Excellent shielding properties - Up to 110 dB

• Saves space on PCB by reducing the number of screws

• Reduced over-all cost - Less machining, fewer screws,

• thinner and more flexible covers
