Zipper-Shield™ (FRC) is the ideal EMI shielding solution for applications that need access to wires or cables even after being installed. The canvas jacketing is a that is 15-mil thick (our FRC-15 fabric), a woven blend of 45:55 polyester and cotton yarns pigmented with a fire-retardant PVC vinyl coating. The FRC-15 is water repellent as well as mildew resistant. The canvas jacketing allows this product to be exposed to extreme weather or environmental conditions while still providing 360° shielding from EMI, RFI, or EMF. The plastic zipper closure is easy to secure around components and allows for quick access as needed. Zippertubing® also offers other types of zipper closures that can be easily sewn on, including our continuous zipper or high-temperature brass zipper.
Our Z-3250-CN fabric provides exceptional EMI, RFI, or EMF shielding. The flexible and lightweight cloth is made of a woven nickel over copper-plated polyester taffeta and sewn to the FRC-15 jacketing with nylon thread. The Z-3250-CN fabric is corrosion-resistant and will not flake or wither over time. The shielding cloth is installed with an overlapping flap to provide complete protection against interferences. Additionally, Zipper-Shield™ (FRC) has a 15 AWG wire braid for grounding capabilities. If you are in need of a non-magnetic, nickel-free EMI shielding solution, Zippertubing® also offers the Z-7200-C EMI shielding material for Zipper-Shield™. This material is halogen-free and hypoallergenic, making it the perfect cloth for our customers who require these attributes for their specific application.
