EMI stands for Electro-Magnetic Interference. It is caused when there are spikes in electronic signals. This can happen in nearly every type of electronic circuit when currents sharply rise and fall.

EMI Coatings

EMI coatings have electrical properties and can be very protective. Coatings protect components from electrostatic discharge and radiated electromagnetic interference. They use many different conductive pigments to protect against extreme or hostile conditions.

EMI coatings prevent interference with other circuits that is undesired. They also help to protect extremely sensitive equipment. Interference is prevented because materials in the coating contain signals released by components.

Coatings are available in many different forms. Popular types of coatings include sheeting, tape, foams, and elastomer gaskets. Depending on the component you wish to protect and its size, you can find an appropriate type of coating material.
