The shielding of electrical cables is a necessary activity in order to insulate and protect cables from possible interference, whether internal or external.
Internal interference is also called “crosstalk” and is that which is generated between two adjacent cables within a circuit. Conversely, external interference is induced by sources placed in the external environment (e.g., machinery or electrical instrumentation) and can be of the electrostatic or electromagnetic type.
Choosing products for shielding electrical cables
Optimal interference prevention involves studying the environment in which the cable will be used and choosing a material suitable for the type of interference.
We at Effegidi produce technical laminates and monofilm suitable for effectively protecting all kind of electrical cables, especially data cables, telecommunication cables and automotive cables. Our products are made of different materials. Typically, technical laminates are composed of a nonferrous metal to which other polymeric elements (including PET, LDPE, PVC, EAA, BOPP) with various properties are coupled. Monofilms, on the other hand, consist of a single material and thus a single material with high technical properties (eg. mechanical, chemical resistance).
Our offering is wide and manages to respond to even the most challenging technical objectives and the most complex environments. Among our products you will undoubtedly be able to find those that best meet your needs in terms of:
- shielding: degree of insulation of the cable;
- safety: some products are low emission of smoke and have fire retardant properties;
- water blocking: ability to block infiltrations;
- binding: ability to keep underlying conductors compact;
- filling: filling function to give the cable fullness and roundness.
Custom solutions for complex cables
It may happen that some cables are placed in very challenging environments and need special shielding to ensure safe and efficient transmissions. No problem! Our R&D department is always ready to find customized solutions for customers who require them. In fact, it is often a synergistic effort involving the two teams, that of Effegidi and that of the client company, who work together to solve specific problems.
The high degree of customization we are able to offer also allows us to work successfully together with technologically very advanced companies with diverse needs, such as those in the military sector for example.
