Protect Sensitive Components with Insulation and Shielding

Insulation and shielding solutions protect sensitive components and users from extreme temperatures, excessive acoustic energy, uncontrolled electricity, electromagnetic interference (EMI), and radio frequency interference (RFI). Insulation and shielding solutions help improve user safety, adoption, and the reliability and efficiency of complex systems. Boyd Corporation offers solutions that help protect and manage acoustics, extreme heat and cold, electricity, and EMI/ RFI in a variety of formats and materials.

Acoustic solutions can dampen vibration to reduce excessive resonant behavior, act as a barrier for noise or absorb noise before it reaches the user, or isolate the source of noise before propagating to other areas. Boyd Corporation can assist in designing and fabricating acoustic solutions that meet a wide variety of requirements for a broad range of applications.

In addition to converting, Boyd Corporation also manufactures SOLIMIDE® Foams, a high performance, open-cell polyimide foam. Our SOLIMIDE® Foams product family is lightweight, durable, non-toxic, exceeds FAR25.856 fire resistance requirements and has superior thermal and acoustic insulation properties. SOLIMIDE® Foams are found in aircraft, spacecraft, railcars, marine vessels and other application in one of seven variations to accommodate different temperature and environmental requirements.

To minimize internal interference and crosstalk, we utilize EMI shielding or EMI absorbers to protect from errant electromagnetic waves. EMI shields are typically constructed from sheet metal, metal screens, metal foams or grounded copper or nickel loaded ink coating. The effectiveness of an EMI shield depends upon material, the shielded volume size, material thickness, the electromagnetic frequency and the overall shape of the shielded area.

Electrical insulators function as an electrical barrier or shield and come in a wide array of materials and form factors depending upon your application requirements. Boyd is well-versed in selecting the right material to protect your product, helping you pass UL certification and testing, and is a world class precision converting expert to produce the right electrical insulation solution for you.
