EMI Cable Shielding Materials
KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES America, Inc.’s EMI Cable Shielding solutions cover a range from cable shielding jackets (FRCSR and FRCSE) to heat shrink tubes (HS series).
Wire mesh has been traditionally used as a cost effective shielding solution. It can be wrapped around cables harnesses for EMI, ESD suppression. It comes in various sizes and its metallic, strong nature allows it to withstand any irregular pressure that may occur. Grounding can also be easily achieved.
Wire Mesh Tape ( MT Series )
Extremely fine(0.12mm) metal wires braided into a cylinder mesh provides excellent flexibility.
For a shielding material that will conform to the shape of the cables, KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES America’s EMI heat shrink tubes can shrink down with its 2:1 shrink ratio. The tubing consists of R-46846 polyolefin with the inside being coated with highly conductive silver polymer. They are provide effective EMI shielding over terminal connection areas of cables.
EMI Heat Shrink Tube ( HS Series )
The tubes provide not only electrical continuity but EMI shielding around the joints being connected.
KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES America’s EMI cable shielding jackets are convenient solutions to protect cables from EMI that may be coming from other outside components as well as provide environmental protection. Our standard type (FRCSR) comes with a conductive aluminum layer underneath an insulation layer containing PET film and polyurethane. The double sided adhesive tape makes this cost effective solution easy to install.
KITAGAWA INDUSTRIES America also provides types with grounding wires to reduce any chance of the cable becoming an antenna. For easy access to do re-work on the cables, our cable shielding jacket has Velcro instead of adhesive. An extra shielding mesh layer has also been added to provide that added performance. This one comes with a handy grounding wire all the way through the material.
