Conductive Caulks and Gap Fillers
Conductive Caulks and Gap Fillers are similar to commercial caulking products, except loaded with electrically conductive fillers. As a result, these fillers enable them to be highly electrically conductive. They are designed to be applied to panel joints, seams and other small clearances in sheet metal enclosures. Designed to cure at room temperature, conductive caulks and gap fillers form a highly conductive, and flexible, elastomeric seal that has excellent adhesion to most commonly used materials.
Conductive caulks and gap fillers can also remove the need for mechanical fixtures, depending on the application requirements. When fully cured, conductive calks help prevent water ingress and improve the EMI shielding performance of panel joints. For more information visit this page.
These materials have excellent high temperature resistance and long-term ageing characteristics. The fillers used in these materials provide a reliable low impedance connection between metallic surfaces. The different fillers can use help to ensure good galvanic compatibility with different alloys in wet or humid environments
Non silicone based versions of our gap fillers and caulks are also available.
