The leading edge in EMI shielding technology
Leader Tech is a world-leading innovator and manufacturer of EMI shielding products for circuit boards, electronic enclosures and interconnect cables, and is positioned to provide you with a ‘total shielding solution’ for all of your EMI/RFI shielding requirements.
Leader Tech serves a diverse commercial and military customer base from its Global EMI Shielding Technology Centre in the USA and every detail of the company’s one-of-a-kind manufacturing facility is tailor engineered to streamline and improve customer service, engineering and manufacturing processes. The Leader Tech product range includes circuit board shields, custom board shields, multicavity board shields, fabric shielding gaskets, wire mesh gaskets, oriented wire gaskets, ferrishield ferrite suppressors, conductive elastomer products, microwave absorbers and finger stock EMI gaskets.
Leader Tech’s TechSIL conductive elastomer materials are ideal for applications requiring both excellent EMI shielding and environmental sealing across a wide temperature range. Conductive elastomers are frequently found in military and aerospace applications but can also be applied economically to meet commercial design requirements. Its proprietary TechSIL compounds are formulated by combining both silicone- and fluorosilicone-based rubber with various forms of conductive fillers, including silver-plated copper, silver-plated aluminium, silver-plated glass and nickel-coated graphite. All formulations are compounded to be compatible with common fluid media and resist compression set, resulting in years of continuous service.
In addition to its large assortment of stock products, Leader Tech offers customers the ability to create custom and die-cut shielding gaskets using any of the company’s conductive elastomer formulations or fabric shielding gasket materials. Its extensive manufacturing capabilities include extrusion, moulding, and precision die-cut shapes and sizes.
All of Leader Tech’s high-performance custom shielding gaskets can be made from the customer’s choice of twelve MIL-DTL-83528 Conductive Elastomer compounds or from the company’s fabric shielding gasket material. Depending on your application requirements, the company’s engineering team will work to develop a custom gasketing solution that exhibits superior shielding properties and ensures a long performance life in a cost-effective manner.
Leader Tech offer very short lead times as most products can be shipped to your store within 2 to 4 weeks from placement of order. Customers are encouraged to review their application with the company’s Material Specialist and Engineering Group to determine the best materials to use for the application.
