Overview

For shielding and grounding, conductive foam is an excellent material for Input/Output (I/O) applications. Conductive Foam has excellent X, Y, and Z-axis conductivity and shielding effectiveness over 90 dB for a wide range of frequencies. Laird can help design custom gaskets to your specifications using a sketch, electronic drawing or your actual equipment.

Conductive foam is a perfect material for any size server, router, or switch system. For example, die-cut solutions can be provided at any length by 54" (1370 mm) wide. As with standard I/O gaskets, Laird can help design a gasket that fits your application.
