 AF-type
AF-type Inter-Connector consists of conductive carbon fibers, which are embedded symmetrically into a sheet of silicone rubber. Since AF type is extremely thin, it is applicable between electrodes in which there's little gap. Various shapes are available because of punch-out manufacturing method used.
