Beryllium Copper Fingerstock Gaskets for EMI Shielding Meets RoHS Directive

July 22nd, 2009

TBA Electro Conductive Products (ECP) has announced that its range of Beryllium Copper fingerstock gaskets for EMI shielding meets the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS Directive).
Beryllium Copper fingerstock gaskets
The directive bans the use of certain substances in new products from July 2006, specifically Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).

TBA ECP’s extensive range of BeCu gaskets contains none of the banned substances and fully meets RoHS directive requirements.

TBA ECP’s beryllium copper fingerstock is available in a wide range of styles including clip-on, stick-on, snap-on, hook-on and special mounting types plus low profile and connectors gaskets all delivering high shielding effectiveness. A wide range of plating options is available including clean and bright, gold, silver, bright tin, bright nickel, zinc/clear chromate and electroless nickel among others.

Beryllium copper shielding strips offer excellent spring qualities and long life. Other important characteristics include low closing forces and high attenuation exceeding 100dB for many styles.

Complementing its range of beryllium copper shielding strips, TBA ECP also supplies stainless steel versions of its low-profile and pressure sensitive mounting gaskets. These extend the choice of materials available to design engineers and provide hard-wearing and long-lasting EMI/RFI shielding in a wide range of applications.

Comprehensive Ranges of Beryllium Copper EMI/RFI Shielding Strips

July 10th, 2009

TBA Electro Conductive Products (ECP) now offers one of the UK’s most comprehensive ranges of Beryllium Copper EMI/RFI shielding strips available from a single source. The company’s portfolio of BeCu EMI/RFI shielding products is one of the largest standard ranges of fingerstock profiles available in the UK and, in many instances, the company can despatch from stock.
comprehensive ranges of Beryllium Copper EMI/RFI shielding strips
In the unlikely event of a profile being out of stock, most profiles can be despatched within two weeks. Profiles are available in full lengths (usually 406mm) or can be supplied cut down to customer requirements.

Fingerstock BeCu shielding strips are available in an extensive range of mounting styles including clip-on, stick-on, snap-on, special mounting products, low profile and hook-on gaskets and connector gaskets. A wide range of plating options is available including clean and bright, gold, silver, bright tin, bright nickel, zinc/clear chromate and electroless nickel among others. These plating options ensure compatibility with most metals, avoiding any potential problems of galvanic corrosion.

Beryllium copper shielding strips offer excellent spring qualities and long life. Other important characteristics include low closing forces and high attenuation exceeding 100dB for many styles. The pure metal BeCu shielding strips deliver superior attenuation compared to fabric gaskets. Metal gaskets also offer greater longevity as they are harder wearing than fabric types. When used in sliding applications, BeCu gaskets are self-cleaning.

Engineers’ Design Packs, featuring small samples of BeCu gaskets presented in an A4 folder, are available to help designers choose the correct profile for the job. The company can also cross refer competitor part numbers so if a customer has been let down by a supplier or their original supplier stops providing the part, TBA ECP is usually able to offer a direct or very near equivalent replacement.

Complementing its range of beryllium copper shielding strips, TBA ECP also supplies stainless steel versions of its low-profile and pressure sensitive mounting gaskets. These extend the choice of materials available to design engineers and provide hard-wearing and long-lasting EMI/RFI shielding in a wide range of applications.

Detectable Plastic Polymer Compounds For Food Production Applications

June 10th, 2009

TBA Electro Conductive Products (ECP) has announced the availability of a wide range of magnetically detectable polymers for use in food manufacturing and similar applications where there is a requirement to detect plastic parts in production lines.

The new range includes eight compounds that are suitable for a variety of processes including injection moulding, extrusion and film.

ECP 210 is a magnetic compound based on special blends of magnetic additive compounded into polypropylene (PP) in such a way as to optimise the physical and magnetic properties during processing. It is suitable for packaging, liquid containers and thin wall extrusions such as corrugated sheet.

Normally supplied in a light blue colour, ECP 225 is a colourable magnetically detectable polyethylene (PE) for film blowing and extrusion and is ideal for creating bags, bin liners, covers and layflat tubing.

ECP 226 is a black coloured magnetic linear low density PE compound based on special blends of iron oxide compounded into modified linear low density PE to optimise physical and magnetic properties during film blowing.

For large containers and bins, ECP 228 is a magnetically detectable rotational moulding powder based on special blends of magnetic additive compounded into a specially developed easy flow linear PE formulation. The compound is designed to produce mouldings of good rigidity combined with excellent impact resistance.

ECP 245 is a magnetically detectable Nylon 6 that is recommended for use in applications such as machine parts where frictional characteristics predominate, e.g. gears, slides, cams and bearings. It is also ideal for use where parts with good physical properties are required such as cable ties and brush bristles, and for components that need to exhibit good chemical resistance.

For sheet extrusion applications and moulded enclosures, ECP 270 is a magnetic compound based on special blends of magnetic additive compounded into ABS.

ECP 280 is a colourable magnetically detectable thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) suitable for injection moulding and extrusion. Normally supplied in blue, ECP 280 is ideal for producing grip handles, hoses and tubing, gaskets and conveyor rollers.

Completing TBA ECP’s new family of magnetically detectable compounds is ECP 290, an injection moulding/extrusion grade detectable thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that is ideal for hoses, tool grips and sheet applications.

Besides the new family of magnetically detectable polymer compounds, TBA ECP is also introducing a range of finished products manufactured from the detectable compounds that are ideal for use in food processing environments.
