EMC coatings on plastic

EMC coatings on plastic

EMC coatings on plastic

Anyone with any suggestions on EMC coat that can be used on plastic parts.

Each can is $50 and we use 2.5 cans for every unit.

The goal is to achieve electrical conduction and shielding inside our molded plastic part.

The stuff that we use is very harmful and its expensive.

The molded plastic has crazy shapes so a film or such thing would be pretty hard to get in and maintain.

Any ways the idea is to make it staff friendly and safe to work with.

We use MGI-841-340 G Nickel conductive coating.


RE: EMC coatings on plastic

Can you have the part molded in a conductive polymer, or add conductive materials to the existing polymer?

Can you have the interior electro-plated?

RE: EMC coatings on plastic

So we add conductive material to the polymer presently. Its nickel coat - MGI-841-340 G.

Just wondering if I can get away from it to something else.

RE: EMC coatings on plastic

What conductivity requirement are you looking for? Temperature? Environment?
