Carbon Foam EMI Shielding
CFOAM® carbon foam can be used as a core to build fireproof EMI sheltered composite structures with superior lightning protection.
CFOAM carbon foam is under development for numerous EMI shielding applications including ships, tactical shelters, fixed site shelters, and other electronic enclosures. CFOAM carbon foam can be easily joined together with electrically conductive adhesives to form a non-metallic “Faraday cage” enclosure.
CFOAM carbon foam enclosures can provide greater than 60 dB of RF shielding from 100MHz to 20 GHz with no metallic components. The advantage of using CFOAM carbon foam in an electronic enclosure is that it serves as a multifunctional material by providing both EMI shielding and structure as a composite core material for the enclosure.
Multifunctional CFOAM carbon foam electronic enclosures will provide fire protection, reduce weight by eliminating metallic components, eliminate corrosion issues, and provide longer service life in harsh environments.
