Chomerics Europe, a division of Parker Hannifin, has introduced Winshield C, a shielded window display material that is said to offer a range of benefits compared with existing solutions.

Winshield C is a cast monomer material that combines good physical properties with electromagnetic shielding performance and optical clarity.

Applications include display filtering in test equipment, medical instrumentation, public information displays and military radios and computers.

Unlike most shielded window materials that comprise an electrically conductive medium such as a mesh laminated to a substrate, Winshield C is a single-component material.

The monomer material combines light transmission performance of 90 per cent – close to that of crown glass – while being less than half the weight.

The material can be cast in thicknesses of 1.5-6.0mm and can be machined to provide features such as mounting holes and grooves for gaskets and seals.

The -60C to +100C operating temperature range of Winshield C allows it to be used in challenging indoor and outdoor environments.

Good chemical, impact and scratch resistance further enhances the suitability of the new material in such applications, according to Chomerics Europe.

Termination is via silver busbar and all Winshield C shielded windows are suitable for the application of silkscreen graphics using ‘two-pack’ inks.

Chomerics provides design and technical support for Winshield C and all other materials in its range of shielded optical products.
