With the need to further minimize the ecological impact of the Electronic Industry and to pro-actively prepare for the forthcoming new environmental policies, Schlegel Electronic Materials (SEM) set the tone and introduces today GREENSHIELD, a complete halogen free EMI gaskets program. SEM R&D team developed a new foam and flame retardant resin which combined with SEM’s highly conductive fabrics, confer to GREENSHIELD‘s EMI gaskets V0 rating (UL94 specification-Underwriters Laboratories Inc.) and Halogen Free label as defined In IEC 61249-2-21 standard. Despite the high reactivity of these chemical elements, the consistency of levels of halogens is insured through specific on-line quality inspection.
GREENSHIELD also features low compression set and excellent compression load/deflection characteristics. GREENSHIELD is available with current Schlegel Electronic Materials manufacturing program including the unique continuous forming process so that our customers can design today products in full compliance with tomorrow’s regulations and limited impact on the environment. GREENSHIELD is in full compliance with European Union Directives 2015/863/EU (RoHS 2.0) and 2002/96/EC (WEEE).
