Also referred to as EMI or RFI shielding, conductive coating is applied
to many household and industry electrical devices. It is done to minimize
the amount of electrical interference that can be caused by the digital
bands used by wireless devices. How can you protect your products from
Technology can be both a blessing and a curse. It
simplifies (and sometimes complicates) our lives. In the case of
wireless devices, it is definitely the former. Without our wireless
gadgets, many of us wouldn't be able to function. Let's face it: they
are a fact of life and here to stay. That being said, they use wireless
band technology that could wreak havoc with wired electrical devices,
like medical equipment. When you get an MRI, you want as accurate a
readout as possible, and that's why conductive coating is used.
Usually comprised from a nickel or silver compound, conductive coating
is just what its name implies: a sprayed on coating that assists in the
conduction of electrical signals inside a machine. In our MRI example,
it shields the sensitive imaging equipment from wireless interference
(the kind caused, for example, by cell phones).
In the past few
years, New England Coating Concept has established itself as a major
player in the application of conductive coating such as EMI shielding
and RFI shielding. Our techniques have been formed over 30 years of
dedication and service to the greater New England area, and beyond. If
you aren't sure what type of conductive coating is best for your
electrical equipment, give us a call.
