The GS2100 Series provides superior shielding effectiveness for aerospace applications.
In challenging conditions, such as those experienced in aerospace, shielding materials are depended on to provide electrical performance regardless of the abrasion, altitude shifts and extreme temperatures they face.
Approved for spaceflight and military applications, the GS2100 Series of GORE® Shielding Solutions protects signal integrity in harsh environments. The GS2100 Series consist of a conductive, adhesive-backed, EMI gasket material that is moderately soft. The materials can be supplied in die-cut part forms — or in slit-width rolls, which are ideal for manual "peel and stick" EMI gasketing applications.
The GS2100 Series consists of a carbon-filled cellular PTFE matrix, a conductive pressure sensitive adhesive and a PET carrier film.
The GS2100 Series is approved for military aerospace and spaceflight applications, commonly used in:
military wireless communications equipment
military and space avionics
high-frequency cable connectors in military and space applications
high-frequency portable electronic devices

Part Number Information for GORE® EMI Shielding Materials—Strip Gaskets
|Part Number||Material Configuration||Width|
When optimizing a gasket shielding solution, consider the housing design as well as the EMI gasket performance.
Important considerations in the housing design include flatness, surface roughness, material type, rigidity, contact area, tolerance take-up, conductivity, fastener type and fastener locations.
Key factors in an EMI gasket include softness, tolerance take-up, conductivity (DC resistance), and shielding effectiveness both before and after Accelerated Life Testing (ALT).
