Stockwell Elastomerics uses a variety of different electrically conductive elastomers and conductive silicone gasket materials in the manufacturing of conductive gaskets. Conductive rubber, conductive silicone and electrically conductive foam are some of the conductive elastomers used for electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection and electromagnetic interference (EMI) / radio frequency interference (RFI) shielding.
Conductive elastomer materials used regularly by Stockwell Elastomerics include:
- Electrically Conductive Silicones for EMI Shielding Gaskets
- Electrically Conductive Foam for Shielding, Grounding & Sealing, Condux Plus™
- ESD Protection Conductive Gasket Materials
Electrically conductive silicone gasket materials are used to attenuate EMI and RFI emissions from electronic devices. Electrically conductive gaskets/EMI shielding gaskets are most commonly applied to enclosure covers, doors and penetrations to prevent or restrict electromagnetic emission that can interfere with other electronic components. In addition to managing EMI / RFI emissions, electrically conductive silicone rubber gaskets are used for environmental sealing to seal out water and dust.

Condux Plus™ electrically conductive foam is used where a soft and compressible foam gap filler is needed while providing electrical contact. This conductive foam also provides environmental sealing against dust and incidental contaminants like light water spray. The excellent mechanical and electrical properties of Condux Plus™ can provide an effective solution for tough shielding, grounding and sealing problems.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) management is very important in many applications, where an unwanted static discharge can damage sensitive electronics. And static discharge where flammables are present can be disastrous. Stockwell Elastomerics offers conductive gasket material solutions for managing ESD. These include:
- T62 Conductive Silicone Sponge Gaskets and Pads
- Conductive Silicone
- Conpads™ Conductive Grounding Pads
- Custom Conductive Gaskets and Pads for ESD
- Conductive Silicone Sealant
- Conductive Neoprene
- Conductive Sponge Sheet for ESD Protection
