At Seleco, our unique proprietary process for selectively plating plastics provides uniform shielding across a wide range of part geometries. In fact, a majority of our clients first call us after realizing that their design will not work without EMI/RFI shielding and they are unable to provide that shielding with either a physical barrier or a spray on coating.
Seleco’s process is a water based coating applied by an immersion process. This is an environmentally responsible and water based process, there are no volatile solvents used and the plastic is not stressed. Once the base coat has been applied and dried, a shortened electroless plating process applies a uniform thickness of copper (the second most conductive metal in the world) which is then covered by a thin coating of nickel to protect the copper from oxidation. This ensures the conductivity of the part remains consistent over the life of the product. The plastic is never exposed to heat about 130°F, so no deformation of the housing. Additionally, because we use an immersion process, we are able to provide a consistent resistance of less than than 1 to 0.1 ohms from point to point.
Since 1986, Seleco has done EMI / RFI shielding work. We have helped to protect a wide variety of products, from military communications devices, digital cellular telephones, data scanners, medical devices and aviation components. We have the ability run both large and small parts. Finally, our process can be set up for either high production volume or lower volume production runs for prototyping or specialty products.
Intrigued? Facing a production challenge you are stumped with? Give us a call to start the process. We would be happy to talk about your goals, review your design and, if it makes sense, prepare a sample part or two for your consideration. If the samples meet your requirements, we will quote your project and you will join our satisfied customer base.
