3M Introduces Breadth of Electrically Conductive Cushioning Gasket Tapes

Multi-Functioning Material Helps Advance Industry Demands

SEATTLE, SID, Booth #339 – May 25-27, 2010 - 3M today introduces two new families of 3M Electrically Conductive Cushioning Gaskets (ECG) designed with multi-functioning material for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and thermal conductivity. The introduction helps advance the industry’s drive toward thinner and smaller electronics with greater functionality and further expands 3M’s already robust line of EMI management solutions for consumer mobile devices.

The two new families of ECG gaskets include varying thicknesses. Series ECG-7000 gaskets are single-sided adhesives and ECG-8000 series gaskets are double-sided adhesives. Both series offer high performance and are ultra thin, conformable and provide unmatched cushioning and recovering properties, as well as EMI shielding and thermal conductivity. 3M ECG gaskets can be die cut to virtually any shape or size including curved edges and are also available in standard rolls.

“Our goal is to offer solutions to design engineers that allow them to advance consumer mobile devices,” said Bim Disanayaka, business development manager at 3M. “With the breadth of ECG gaskets and other EMI management solutions, 3M is able to help customize virtually any device, while meeting industry demands for advancements.”

3M ECG gaskets provide high-performance options that help speed assembly and protect valuable components from EMI interference. They have outstanding gap-filling performance, improve electromagnetic compatibility compliance, improve shock and vibration performance, enhance grounding and provide more electromagnetic shielding design options.

For more information about 3M’s family of ECG gaskets visit 3M’s booth # 339 during the SID show in Seattle, Wash. from May 25-27, 2010.

As a member of the CLPA Board, 3M will work with Digital Electronics Corporation, IDEC Corporation, NEC Corporation, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and COGNEX Corporation to provide guidance on standards and specifications for CC-Link-compatible connectors and cables. 3M will also continue to develop connectors and cables for the next generation network, CC-Link IE.
