Z-Shield® (5080)
  • Jacketing is abrasion resistant, chemical resistant, U.V. resistant, and fire retardant
  • Shielding fabric is coated with copper and nickel for excellent corrosion resistance
  • Wrap-around solution can be installed in the production environment without disconnecting or re-wiring of components

Z-Shield® (5080) is a wrap around EMI shielded jacket made of fire-retardant Polyurethane film, flame retardant Z-5080 EMI shielding cloth, and an adhesive closure. This combination provides good electromagnetic shielding of wires and cables in applications requiring outstanding flexibility, flammability to UL224, VW-1, and good dielectric strength.

This product is extremely useful in electronics applications where space may require a thin and flexible shielding. Z-Shield® (5080) can be configured to fit most Round, Flat or Rectangular cable configurations and is available with or without a drain wire installed.

This product has an operational temperature range of -22° to 248°C (-30° to 120°C).
