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 is used with doors, cabinets, and where surfaces may be uneven and low closure forces exist. For the many applications that require cut-to-length pieces that must be terminated with adhesive to stop the fraying of the knitted mesh, Ja-Bar 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).
