Two Shields

Spectra Shields Tri-metal process consists of three Layers of metal on an engineering resin base.

The first layer, Electroless copper, is applied using a proprietary patented process which bonds to the molecular structure of the resin. A Solid Copper layer is then Electro-plated over the Electroless layer to form  a Solid RF Barrier. A Solid Nickel layer is then electroplated over the copper layer to form a tough, durable, protective finish. This process is applied to all surfaces, inside and out, creating six layers of shielding from a cross sectional view.

Spectra Shield meets or exceeds the following test as performed by   independent testing facility on a standard 1-1/2 X 3-1/2" shield.Attn plot

Salt Fog per MIL-STD-810E Method 509.3   Test Conditions = 5% salt solution, temperature = 95 degrees F. Salt Fog fallout rate of .5 to 3.0 ml/80cm 2/hr. Total exposure for 48 hours.

Thermal Test consist of parts thermal cycled from -40 to +70 degree C for eight complete cycles @ three hours per cycle, with a one hour dwell at extreme temperatures.

High Temperature resins are available to 700 degree F.
