Overview

Hook-N-Shield® (TPU)
  • Thermoplastic polyurethane jacketing has the best abrasion resistance
  • Velcro® closure requires no tools for installation
  • Shielding mesh is durable in rugged conditions and provides good shielding effectiveness

Hook-N-Shield® (TPU) is a wrap-around EMI shielding solution equipped with a Velcro® closure. The jacketing is a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material that is 0.02” thick and UL-rated for flammability with meeting UL 94, V-0. The TPU jacketing is halogen free, abrasion resistant, microorganism resistant and ozone resistant (Stage 0, “Crack Free”). This jacketing’s properties meet requirements typically demanded in medical and clean room applications*.

The SHX-4 (SnCuFe) is a shielding mesh made from 4-ply tin-plated, copper clad steel wire. The mesh provides good shielding from EMI, RFI, and EMF, and is durable to last through rugged conditions. A 15 AWG braided wire is sewn to the shielding mesh for grounding capabilities. If you are looking for a shielding material that provides better protection from EMI, Hook-N-Shield® (TPU) can be equipped with either the Z-3250-CN or Z-7200-C shielding fabric upon request. The Z-3250 shielding fabric is made of a taffeta material plated with copper then nickel for excellent corrosion resistance. The Z-7200 fabric has a unique property of being non-magnetic and halogen-free, which is ideal for applications that have sensitive magnetic instrumentation and require halogen-free material.

The Aramid Velcro® closure requires no tools for installing Hook-N-Shield® (TPU). The hooks and loops easily engage for a secure closure, but can be peeled apart just as quickly to access components inside. The Velcro® is sewn to the TPU jacketing with an Aramid thread to ensure a strong seal of materials and to maintain the halogen-free product offering.

Hook-N-Shield® (TPU) is offered for diameters ranging from 0.5” to 6”, with custom shapes and sizes available upon request. The operational temperature range is -40°F to 257°F (-40°C to 125°C).

*Hook-N-Shield® (TPU) is not manufactured using a clean room in sterile conditions, but with the right procedures, it could be used in the medical field, including in hospitals, operating rooms, trauma centers, and emergency rooms.

ATTENUATION DATA WAS OBTAINED USING MIL-DTL-83528H (MODIFIED). TESTING WAS PERFORMED BY ACCREDITED, THIRD-PARTY EMI LABORATORIES.
