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.
