MicroBridge gaskets from Vanguard
Microbridge® is the ultimate construction design utilizing new technology which creates a microscopic conductive bridge through the body of an elastomeric extruded gasket. The conductive element traces a path, by putting the conductor only where it is needed through the interior of the silicone rubber core, yielding very significant cost- effective savings of the conductive material.
This leaves the outside face of the mounting surface side with as much adhesion-active area as possible and improved galvanic corrosion resistance with low compression/ deflection forces. Excellent for I/O backplanes and all general RFI/EMI shielding applications.
Available in most profiles in this catalog and many custom configurations. Be creative and utilize our design staff to help optimize your specific application. Standard tooled profiles: strips, D-bulbs and T-wiper styles. Custom layouts of the conductive traces and die-cutting are easily arranged (see also custom die-cuts below).
