Engineering of absorbing materials for gaskets that would be used between two metal plates to reduce electromagnetic emissions and improve immunity of electronic equipment is considered. An analytical model of a composite based on the Maxwell Garnett formulation for multiphase mixtures, as well as the shielding effectiveness of this material, are presented. The full-wave numerical computational results for the structure consisting of two overlapping metal plates and an engineered gasket composite material in the place of the overlap are presented.
