Yes, I'm sure the rubber will work. ( its just an 'insulator' )
Its thick black ( i dont know the 'Mil' thickness ) and its thicker than whats used for "shower pan underlayment liner". Its thicker than "Pond
Liner". I cant remember what it was designed for, and I probably picked it up at a commercial building construction site somewhere, or in a salvage
The rubber , or cardboard, just acts as an ''insulator" between the appliance ( or electronic device ) and the "inner layer" of the tin foil.
( 2 layers of tin foil, 'insulted' between the appliance, and 1st layer, then more protective insulation and then a second "outer" layer of foil
-- all in a box thats insulated inside, and sealed on the outside)
It just stops stray electrical current that will form on the inner tin foil surfaces.
It keeps that 'charge' from touching the radio or electronic appliance.
It also keeps the metal box sides and bottom from touching the stored electronics. You could probably use dense packing foam, or even bubble wrap.
Thank you for posting those links... I'm pretty new to this "posting" thing ( ATS ), and I have not learned the 'magic' yet.
I do find it very interesting how many people are interested in EMP all of a sudden.
I've been researching it for over 20 years, when I have a chance, or find some new "white paper" somewhere.
I have found that until recently, it was a well guarded secret, and some of the technical details are still 'classified' ( such as do you 'ground'
or do you 'not ground').
Seems as if the people who KNOW... dont want US to know....
There seems to be a LOT of disinformation out there on the subject as well, and only within the past 5 to 8 years have I been able to get some solid
data. Even that is missing the details and tech specs that I want..
The best information seems to be from not the Government, but from 'Tech geeks' ( no offense, I consider myself one too ) who set up protected
computer server systems , for like Siemens and AT&T.
I hope this information helps you, as this is the BEST that I can find at this point, and its what I have personally 'invested' in for my own
I have redesigned and re done this system several times, each time improving it from further research, and trial and error.
