Conductive Silicone Rubber

Z-Axis europe offers revolutionary elastomeric connector material (Zebra Connectors) of tightly spaced parallel rows of filaments embedded in a silicone case.

The material is available in a variety of geometries, enabling introduction in numerous new applications.

Why Silicone Rubber?

  • Does not crack or become soft or brittle.
  • Less compression set.
  • Unaffected by aging.
  • Generates no corrosive chemicals.
  • Does not degrade with UV, radiation, oxygen, ozone or humidity exposure.
  • Flexible to temperatures as low as -55oC.
  • Constant dielectric properties over wide range of temperature and humidity extremes.

Type of Connector

SP: Stamping, Plating, Assembly & Molding

DW: Drawn, Wire, Assembly & Molding
