EMI / RFI FABRIC OVER FOAM

As the inventor of conductive fabrics over foam shielding gaskets in 1987, Schlegel Electronic Materials (SEM) has always set the industry standard for highly flexible conductive fabrics.  Continuous research and development on substrates, plating processes, and protective coatings have improved shielding effectiveness, environmental durability, and abrasion resistance.

Fabric Over Foam technology provides continuous contact with applications which ensures consistent shielding efficiency at very high frequencies and is non-abrasive to plated and painted surfaces.

SEM’s Fabric Over Foam products are used from grounding pads in consumer products to high frequency shielding gaskets in super computers.
