Multifinctional 3M Tape Combines EMI+RFI Absorption and EMI Shielding

3M has built on its history of innovation in OEM tapes to create the new 3M Multifunctional EMI/RFI Absorber and Shielding Tape AB6005 series. Combining EMI absorbing and shielding in a single tape makes this series of three tapes particularly well suited for applications in electronic components and in devices such as mobile handhelds, digital still cameras and LCD televisions. One of the tapes also handles ESD grounding.

The AB6005 tapes have absorber, shielding and insulating layers integrated in one flexible tape. When the layers are varied in three different constructions, three unique products result. The different constructions of the AB6005 series products perform uniquely different shielding and absorbing functions, isolating and separating EMI and RFI transmitters and receivers. Building multiple EMI, RFI and ESD performance attributes into a thin tape product that is easily converted into specific shapes changes how electronic products can be designed and problems resolved.

3M serves original equipment manufacturers with OEM tapes, EMC and EMI-shielding products, antistatic masking tapes, heat shrink tubing and devices, liquid resins and adhesive transfers. 3M products are used for insulating wire harnesses, shielding against electromagnetic interference, protecting PCBs and electronic devices, and insulating electrical components.
