Composite shielding solutions
Lamiflex produces advanced composite materials for use in a wide range of industrial applications. Thanks to an exclusive supply agreement with a partner specialized in the metallization of fabrics for electromagnetic shielding and electrical conductivity, the company has developed composite shielding solutions EMI and RFI that combine the high conductive surface that can shield a wide range of frequencies with light weight, design flexibility and cost advantages of composite materials. Lamiflex’s shielding materials include a family of semi-manufactured preimpregnated materials based on nickel, zinc, gold and silver in reinforced polyester, glass Nomex, carbon and epoxy resin. The company also produces customized, finished parts based on these composites that can be adapted to any geometric solution. Lamiflex's composites have industrial and military applications in many sectors, including aerospace, telecommunications, automotive, undersea systems, and electronics.
The enormous development of systems, installations and equipment that generate electromagnetic fields in the environment, such as telecommunications systems, remote broadcasting, radar and remote sensing, the increasing use of electromagnetic heating technologies in industrial, civil and medical applications, development of wireless systems for data transmission and multimedia, the increase of voltage in the electricity transmission systems and extend of its distribution network to contribute towards the urban environment and often also in the rural levels of electromagnetic field several orders of magnitude.
The rules to guard against this danger are four:
- measure the amount of radiation.
- maintain a safe distance.
- limit the exposure time.
- shield the source, the living site or the person.
