Study to Wood Electromagnetic Shielding Composites Laminated with Aluminum Plates
Radiations from different electrical devices cause electromagnetic interference which will influence the performance realization of other electromagnetic device and cause the health concerns. The aluminum plates were then used to develop wood electromagnetic shielding composites by laminating with the plywood. Their static modulus of elasticity and electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of the composites with different thickness and position of aluminum plates were evaluated. The results showed that the strength of composites were improved by laminating the aluminum plates on the surface. The electromagnetic shielding performance of the composites were increased by the design of the multilayer and sandwich shielding structure. Again, It was also found that the composites made by laminating two aluminum plates (1mm, in the middle or on the surface) had a better shielding effectiveness (60 dB to 92 dB, 60 dB to 106 dB, Ranged from 1 GHz to 10 GHz) and met the requirement for a commercial electromagnetic shielding building product.
