High-performance gaskets, extrusions and fabrications for EMI/RFI shielding, thermal management and conductive applications from silicone, fluorosilicone, and EPDM
Why Vanguard Products?
Vanguard has been manufacturing custom dual elastomer EMI/RFI shielding and conductive gaskets and seals for over 50 years, offering a broad range of standard gaskets and products that can be easily customizable at a reasonable cost.
Vanguard Products is a full-service manufacturing and engineering company that specializes in high precision elastomeric fabricated shielding products. Vanguard offers a full spectrum of EMI/RFI extrusions, gaskets and fabrications including Dual Elastomer Ultra-Vanshield, Van-Therm thermal management and MIL Spec products for applications such as shielding, grounding, heat extraction and ESD.
Vanguard’s focus is on engineered high-performance elastomers, such as silicone, fluorosilicone, flurocarbon (Viton®, Fluorel®, etc.), EPDM, nitrile, conductive, sponge, and many other technical rubber materials. Special attention is paid to your individual requirements for physical properties, finished part quality, and cost parameters. Vanguard can design the seal or gasket for you or work with your current designs.
Vanguard's electrically conductive shielding gaskets have a variety of mounting options and shapes including: groove, U-channel, clip, tube dart, D-shape, G-Bulb, and adhesive mounts. Shielding material properties include: silver; silver plated copper; silver plated aluminum; silver plated graphite; and carbon filled. Typical product forms are seals, O-rings, Die-cuts, I/O interfaces and grounding pads which are utilized in products such as; computers, telecom equipment, medical devices, automotive and industrial control applications.
Vanguard has succeeded in providing cost effective, highly technical and high-performance products to its customers through DFM (Design for Manufacturability) in the up-front stages of design. Engaging Vanguard early in the development cycle will assure the best combination of technology and performance and the best overall cost for your shielding, grounding and thermal product needs.
