Coated Mesh Knit Over Elastomer
Coated Mesh Knit Over Elastomer is a new addition to our shielding materials. It is manufactured with a core of silicone (solid, solid tube, or sponge) and a single layer of knitted wire mesh. We then co-extrude a fine layer of silicone based coating to the exterior which adheres the wire to the core, yet allows for the electrical properties to be maintained.
Used most commonly in electronic packaging where cost efficiency is critical, but standard wire mesh or knitted wire mesh over elastomers are unusable due to the possibility of dislodged and fraying wires interfering with the electronics. Due to the self-terminating capability, our coated knit-overs may be purchased in continuous lengths on spools then cut to length on your factory floor while being installed, or if preferred Ja-Bar can supply cut-to-length or vulcanized into ring gaskets to meet your specific requirements.
Standard dimensions and ordering information can be found in our SERIES 500 section of this website. Custom dimensions are available upon request.
