Conductive Die Cut Gasket for Electrical Grounding

 

Customer Need

A major appliance OEM was experiencing quality issues regarding lighting and wiring in a line of ovens. The faulty wiring was hazardous, leaving the oven knobs susceptible to shock by touch.

The Budnick Solution

We worked with a 3M™ to assess the issue and provide the OEM with various 3M™ product samples for testing. Ultimately a 3M™ conductive cushioning gasket tape was chosen and die-cut to size by Budnick. The gasket tape is a single coated, electrically conductive compressible tape with excellent cushion and recovery properties. Its electrical grounding capabilities make it an ideal fit to prevent any shock hazards.

Enhanced Performance

The die-cut gasket makes for quick and easy installation, improving productivity. The gasket conforms well between substrates and provides the necessary electrical grounding. Excellent bond line gap filling allows for improved EMI shielding and reduces EMI emissions.
