Series 400 Wire Mesh / Elastomer Combinations
Wire mesh/elastomer combinations are produced by vulcanizing shielding mesh, normally SnCuFe (tin-plated, copper-clad, steel wire) or Monel, with an elastomer, either silicone or Neoprene. This creates a reliable, low-cost shielding gasket, with environmental sealing properties, for use in military and electronic applications.
Ideal for use as enclosure, window, and panel gaskets and where substantial joint unevenness is apparent. Choice of shielding mesh should take into consideration the type of metals being interfaced, to insure compatibility, and the attenuation required. The elastomer should be chosen to meet your compression, temperature, and sealing needs. The elastomer is available with an adhesive back—either temporary (PSA) or permanent (DRYBACK Neoprene only) for ease in installation.
