Fabric Shielding Gaskets

D-Sub Miniature

D-Sub Miniature

Shielding gaskets are, very simply, connectors of two opposing metallic planes which make them appear as one continuous surface, by connecting across the openings. Depending on the frequencies involved, the openings must be reduced as closely as possible to a continuous seal. Leader Tech’s unique Fabric Shielding Gasket structure is a combination of a highly conductive nickel/copper ripstop fabric and a resilient polyurethane foam core. Leader Tech’s FSG products have superior shielding properties and ensure long performance life all in a cost effective manner.

Leader Tech offers a variety of standard I/0 gaskets in a variety of configurations for computer and instrumentation applications. These profiles are made from .040” or .060” thick Leader Tech FSG material and can be made to custom shapes, sizes and thicknesses as well. PSA is standard on many profiles and available on all designs upon request. Leader Tech FSG I/O gaskets are all UL94-V0 rated and RoHS compliant.
