Abstract

Modern electronics have nowadays evolved to offer highly sophisticated devices. It is not rare; however, their operation can be affected or even hindered by the surrounding electromagnetic radiation. In order to provide protection from undesired external electromagnetic sources and to ensure their unaffected performance, electromagnetic shielding is thus necessary. In this work, both the electromagnetic and mechanical properties of graphite-based polymeric films are studied. The investigated films show efficient electromagnetic shielding performance along with good mechanical stiffness for a certain graphite concentration. To the best of our knowledge, the present study illustrates for the first time both the electromagnetic shielding and mechanical properties of the polymer composite samples containing graphite filler at such high concentrations (namely 60-70 %). Our findings indicate that these materials can serve as potential candidates for several electronics applications.
