EMI-Shield AL2.5 is applied like wallpaper, covering all surfaces: floor, walls and ceiling. Other than normal cleanliness, and dust free, no special preparation is required. 

 

The foil may be stapled or glued in-place.

 

Special ordered with a Non-Conductive Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA).

 

For maximum effectiveness, seams may be taped with electrically conductive adhesive foil tape.

 

We recommend  a minimum of 3″ overlap (6" wide) using non-conductive adhesive foil tape or a minimum 1.5" (3' wide) using conductive adhesive foil tape.

 

Do not solder or weld EMI-Shield AL2.5

 

Wear correct gloves when installing the foil, the edge is like a razor blade

We recommend the AL20 for EMI/RF shielding of the floor

SEE BELOW

Two layers of AL5 has the same shielding effectiveness as the AL10

EMI-Shield AL10 is not recommended for floor covering. Other than normal cleanliness, and dust free, no special preparation is required. 

 

The foil may be mechanically fastened or glued in-place.

 

Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) is NOT available for AL10.

 

For maximum effectiveness, we recommend butt jointing the AL10 and taping the seams with electrically conductive adhesive foil tape.

 

We recommend 3" or 4" electrically conductive adhesive Aluminum or Copper foil tape.

 

 

Do not solder or weld EMI-Shield AL10

EMI-Shield AL20 is applied like lightweight paneling, covering all surfaces: walls and ceiling. Other than normal cleanliness, and dust free, no special preparation is required. 

 

The panels are not self supporting.

 

The foil panels may be screwed (self drilling screw recommended) (wall systems) or glued in-place (floor systems).

 

For maximum effectiveness, seams should be taped with 5 mil Aluminum or 5 mil Copper electrically conductive adhesive foil tape.

 

We recommend  butt jointing the panels and taping the seams with 4" wide electrically conductive foil tape. 6" wide non-conductive adhesive foil tape can also be used, but not recommended.

EMI-Shield AL5 Tape is applied like any tape with a release. The tape is used to RF seal the seams of foil or foil panels.

 

The 4" wide, electrically conductive PSA is ideal for sealing the seams.

 

The 6" wide, non-conductive PSA is used to frame out all the corners and intersections between walls, ceiling and floor, before the foil rolls are applied.

 

The 1" wide electrically conductive tape is used to electrically bond all foil rolls, if they were applied with non-conductive PSA.

 

 

Wear correct gloves when installing the foil tape, the edge is like a razor blade
