Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping the HOZOX™ EMI absorption sheets and tape manufactured by Molex. While only 0.1mm thick, these flexible sheets suppress most unwanted electromagnetic interference (EMI) while meeting government EMC regulations worldwide. The unique dual-layer structure of the HOZOX allows the sheeting to efficiently absorb both megahertz and gigahertz electromagnetic energy, providing a wide range of EMI protection for a variety of applications
The Molex HOZOX EMI absorption sheets available from Mouser Electronics provide excellent EMI noise reduction for many electronics systems. Electromagnetic interference can interfere with the proper operation of many electronic systems by inducing electric currents into wiring and PC board traces, resulting in difficult to diagnose equipment malfunctions. In addition, EMI can cause self-heating in magnetically conductive metals, resulting in overheating problems that can result in equipment failure from thermal damage to components
The HOZOX EMI absorption sheets inhibit stray EMI by using a unique two-layer design. The magnetic layer is composed of a sendust powder that efficiently absorbs low frequency electromagnetic noise. The much thinner conductive layer is composed of ferrite powder mixed with nano-carbon wires that mitigate high-frequency electromagnetic energy. Together these dual layers provide excellent EMI protection over a broad range of frequencies. A layer of adhesive is applied to the conductive layer and allows the sheets to be pressed firmly into place. Optionally, the adhesive can be applied to the magnetic layer. Once properly applied, the sheeting keeps stray electromagnetic fields safely contained.
The HOZOX is available both in sheets, or in 10 or 20mm tape. To learn more, visit
