ROWO Coating High-Performance Flexible Shielding Substrates
ROWO specialises in the coating of flexible substrates from roll to roll by means of the vacuum coating techniques, thermal evaporation and sputtering.
Due to extensive experience with various coating materials, as well as substrates and an intensive research and development, ROWO has been able to establish an excellent reputation as a partner for the development of sophisticated coatings for various industries.
For the military industry, ROWO offers a wide range of electrically conductive substrates for solving issues in regard to electromagnetic phenomena. These electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) products find their application in the shielding of buildings, rooms, vehicles, devices, casings, and cables, for purposes of protecting electronic components, their sensitive data and protection against espionage.
Custom coated flexible substrates for shielding
ROWO´s family of shielding products, ROWOSHIELD®, are exclusively flexible substrates such as films, wovens and nonwovens that are coated with thin layers of metals or alloys, making them electrically conductive. Through careful selection of the right combination of substrate and coating, shielding properties can be achieved as the customer desires. The shielding effectiveness of the company’s standard ROWOSHIELD® products range from 20dB, to more than 80dB.
Protection against EMP and IEMI
Electromagnetic pulses (EMP), or intentional electromagnetic interferences (IEMI) can disrupt, damage or even destroy electronic devices completely, leading to malfunctions, replacement costs and eventually even loss of sensitive data. ROWOSHIELD® products are suited for large scales of shielding, such as the shielding of buildings, down to small scales, such as the shielding of devices, casings and cables.
Protection against espionage and eavesdropping
Van Eck Phreaking is the process of intercepting electromagnetic emissions of displays through walls and windows and replicating their content for purposes of espionage and eavesdropping. With the help of ROWOSHIELD®, buildings and rooms can be shielded in such a way that electromagnetic emissions cannot penetrate walls and windows, denying the opportunity of intercepting the emissions on the outside.
Development of sophisticated coatings for shielding
Over the past ROWO has developed several sophisticated coatings on films, wovens and nonwovens in collaboration with well-renowned companies. Due to the possibility of developing coatings that offer various values of electrical conductivity and different levels of shielding, ROWO is creating the products of the future.
