Flex-Shield™ (HP) is a high-flexing, EMI shielding sleeve. Flex-Shield™ (HP) is made of two-ply twisted meta-aramid (Nomex) threads that have tin-plated copper foil strips helically wound around each thread, then braided together to create the expandable tubular sleeve. Flex-Shield™ (HP) is extremely flexible yet thin, with a material thickness of only 0.025”. Because it can expand up to three times its original size, Flex-Shield™ (HP) can work on applications that fluctuate in sizing. The expandable sleeve has a wide temperature range of -40°F to 302°F (-40°C to 150°C) and is RoHS compliant, fluid resistant, and UL-rated for flammability with meeting UL1441, VW-1. In addition, if the application requires, Flex-Shield™ (HP) can be equipped with a woven-in braided wire for grounding needs.
Flex-Shield™ (HP) is currently being utilized for a variety of aerospace applications. Due to its lightweight and non-metallic core material, Flex-Shield™ (HP) is the “Ace for Space,” providing EMI shielding and a durable barrier between components and environmental conditions. Flex-Shield™ (HP) is available in sizes ranging from 0.125” to 1.5” in diameter, with custom sizing available upon request.
