Laird Technologies Expands EMI Gemini(TM) Multi-Extrusion Gasket Product Line

Expanded EMI Multi-Extrusion Elastomer Shielding Product Line Includes Gemini(TM) 81 and Gemini(TM) 93 Gaskets

St. Louis, Missouri, USA - Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the expansion of its electromagnetic interference (EMI) Gemini(TM) multi-extrusion gasket product line.

The expanded product line includes the Gemini(TM) 81 and Gemini(TM) 93 EMI shielding gaskets. Both high-performance gaskets combine a reliable environmental silicone elastomer seal with an electrically conductive elastomer. The Gemini(TM) 81 includes a silver/aluminum conductive elastomer while the Gemini(TM) 93 includes a nickel/graphite conductive elastomer, resulting in a cost-effect EMI shielding product with lower material cost and an improved environmental seal against water, moisture, dust and mildly corrosive atmospheric conditions due to smog.

"The cost-effective Gemini(TM) EMI multi-extrusion elastomer shielding product line combines the strength of silicone rubber with Laird Technologies' proprietary conductive elastomer EMI shielding materials and knowledge," said John Slagle, Laird Technologies Product Line Manager for North America and Europe - ECE, FIP, and Absorbers. "This results in improved EMI performance over the lifetime of the gasket."

The Gemini(TM) 81 and Gemini(TM) 93 shielding gaskets are available in both standard and custom profiles. Adhesive is applicable upon request for ease of installation.
