Solid Knitted Wire Mesh
Solid knitted wire mesh gaskets provide a cost-effective solution to high shielding performance applications in the magnetic and electrical fields RFI/EMI and including EMP.
Kemtron has developed its knitted wire mesh production facility and expertise to enable it to produce RFI / EMI gaskets in a wide range of wire materials and in many different size configurations. Together with our extensive fabrication capabilities and large stocks of raw materials, we can manufacture knitted wire mesh gaskets to suit many applications. We offer a bespoke service, which can also produce economical gaskets, with good delivery times, in prototype quantities or for short, medium or large commercial production runs.
Manufactured on a circular wire knitting machine using a single wire. The mono-filament interlocking-loop construction gives strength while allowing it to conform to almost any size or shape of gasket strip.
Kemtron knit in 4 wire materials, available In continuous lengths, cut to length or fabricated into finished gaskets by spot welding and stitching to suit customer requirements. Variety of profiles and sizes available. Fabricated gaskets. Compressed mesh rings. Self-adhesive backing is not recommended with this version of mesh.
Solid knitted mesh gaskets provide an excellent EMI / RFI / EMP gasket shield between two metallic surfaces and with the choice of wire mesh material available allows for a good galvanic match with mating flanges, thereby limiting the possibility of corrosion between gasket and flange.
