Series 500 Wire Mesh Over Elastomer
Wire mesh over an elastomer is a double layer of wire mesh knitted over a round or rectangular core of elastomer. The mesh layers provide EMI/RFI shielding while the elastomer acts as a dust and moisture seal. The standard mesh material is monel or tin-plated, copper-clad steel (SnCuFe).
Wire mesh over elastomer combinations are used with doors, cabinets, and where surfaces may be uneven and low closure forces exist. For the applications that require cut-to-length pieces that must be terminated with adhesive to stop the fraying of the knitted mesh, Nolato Jabar has devised a co-extrusion method of manufacturing silicone knit-overs, which results in a self-terminating material supplied in continuous lengths for use in a production line. Our new self-terminating can be specified by replacing the “0” in the fifth digit of our part number with “1” (silicone cores only).
