The use of metal-coated plastics is increasing as shielding materials of electronic and information products due to their lightweight. In this paper, a finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) algorithm, based on the derivation of a time-domain representation of the surface impedance of an equivalent resistive film, was developed to analyze the electromagnetic penetration of pulsed electromagnetic fields through metal-coated plastics. The validity of the proposed algorithm, in both the far-field and near-field cases, was verified by comparing the calculated penetrated electromagnetic fields or shielding effectiveness with theoretical and measured ones. Good agreement between them demonstrated the usefulness of the FDTD algorithm.
