Grounding, Shielding, and Insulation Products for the Electronics Industry

Having served the electronics industry since the earliest days of cell phone production, M&C Specialties is a trusted, industry-leading converter of components designed to exhibit enhanced electrical grounding, shielding, and insulating properties. We utilize our high-value cleanroom engineering and precision manufacturing capabilities to keep costs down while fabricating high-performance grounding, shielding, and insulating components to meet the most demanding specifications for our electronics customers’ applications.

Grounding/Shielding Applications:

  • Grounding for covers, printed circuit boards (PCB), and other components
  • Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding
  • Frequency absorption/interference reduction
  • Near-field communications (NFC)
  • Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) wireless charging

Electronic Insulation Applications:

  • Electric vehicle (EV) battery pack and chargers
  • EV Battery Management Systems
  • EV DC/DC converters
  • Home appliances
  • LED Drivers
  • Panelboard barriers
  • PV solar power inverters

Materials Expertise

We have decades of experience in the selection, engineering, and development of electrical grounding, shielding, and insulating materials, a product area that encompasses a variety of films, foams, foils, laminates, and adhesives. In particular, we are a leading custom fabricator of Formex polypropylene and polycarbonate flame-retardant electrical insulating materials, a product line of our sister company ITW Formex. Supplied in sheets and rolls, these versatile, cost-effective materials can be fabricated into a wide range of shapes that exhibit superior surge shielding, electrical insulation, and electrical barrier properties for numerous consumer and industrial electronic equipment applications. Depending on the end-use, Formex materials can provide substantial cost savings when used to replace injected molded components, certain thermoplastic materials, and electrical papers, etc.

World-Class Converting

As a custom fabricator of Formex and other materials for electrical grounding, shielding, and insulating applications, M&C Specialties leverages its materials expertise and proven converting capabilities to offer unique and innovative products solutions made with or without pressure-sensitive adhesive coatings, as well as multilayer laminate constructions that combine Formex with other electrical insulating, electrical shielding, securement, and heat-shielding layers. In offering these more sophisticated constructions, we can eliminate assembly steps that would otherwise be passed on to the customer.

What separates M&C Specialties from other converters of Formex and related materials is the global reach we enjoy as a subsidiary company of ITW—a $14.1 billion, Fortune 200, global manufacturing leader with converting and fabricating operations in 20 countries. A world-class converter, contract manufacturer, and fabricator of adhesive tapes, components, and related finished products, M&C Specialties leverages its Continuous Partner Involvement model to offer breakthrough product development, clean room/white room engineering and manufacturing, and supply chain services. Our production capabilities include inline laser die-cutting, rotary die-cutting, plotter cutting, flat-bed die-cutting, laminating, spooling, slitting, laser cutting, and printing.
