ACT is the UK and European market leader in the application of conductive paints for EMI/RFI shielding. Supplying into a wide range of sectors including defence, medical, aerospace, instrumentation and automotive, and more recently electric vehicles. With capabilities to meet the production demands of low to high volumes projects.

Using paints loaded with either nickel, copper or silver particles, ACT can tailor a solution to meet both performance and price requirements.

Paints can be applied directly to a wide range of engineering plastics and adhesion promoting primers are available for more complex substrates. Coatings are usually required selectively onto internal surfaces of enclosures. Our expertise in the manufacture of high precision, electroformed masking tools ensure accuracy and repeatability.

Our market-driven approach means we turn around samples quickly, and provide customers with a rapid response to help solve RFI/EMI challenges.
