Z-Silver Connector

Z-Silver Elastomeric Connectors provide low resistance connections in many component-to-board and board-to-board applications.

Z-Silver Elastomeric Connectors are typically used to mate Flex Circuits or PC Boards to LCD Modules, EL Displays, LED Backlights and other PC Boards. Due to the silicone construction of Z-Silver Elastomeric Connectors, they conform to the contact surfaces of the mating substrates to create a gasket-like seal that withstands environmental conditions. In addition, the elasticity of Z-Silver Elastomeric Connectors provides superior performance in applications that require resilience to shock and vibration.

These low-cost connectors are available in custom sizes to accommodate the specific needs of your application.

Available Combinations

Foam, solid silicone, and insulation are all available in any combination and on one or both sides of a Z-Silver Elastomeric Connector.
