ArmorLite™ Microfilament Nickel Clad Stainless Steel
EMI/RFI Braided Shielding
™
„„
Ultra-lightweight EMI/RFI braiding for
high-temperature applications -80°C to
+260°C
„„
Microfilament stainless steel: 70% lighter
than NiCu A-A-59569
„„
Outstanding EMI/RFI shielding and
conductivity
„„
Reduce shielding weight up to 70% and
more
„„
Superior flexibility and "windowing"
resistance:
90 to 95% optical coverage
„„
220,000 psi (min) tensile strength
„„
Best performing metallic braid during
lightning tests (Run to ANSI/EIA-364-751997 Waveform 5B)
Save weight and money every time you fly! Aircraft All-Up-Weight (AUW)
has met its match: ArmorLite™ microfilament stainless steel braid saves
pounds compared to standard QQ-B-575/A-A-59569 EMI/RFI shielding.
