Metal Compressed Gaskets
KnitMesh Technologies all-metal compressed wire mesh gaskets are used to provide EMI shielding in microwave ovens, CCTV, wave-guides, connectors and shaft seals.
With an all-metal construction, compressed wire mesh gaskets are also extremely good heat conductors and are resilient to high temperatures and shock absorption. This makes them suitable for use in severe environmental conditions. Custom conductive gaskets are not, however, recommended for use where joints are regularly opened or where an environmental seal is required.
Knitted wire mesh construction
KnitMesh Technologies all-metal compressed wire mesh gaskets are EMI shielded; they are constructed from knitted wire mesh to produce a seamless gasket, normally with a rectangular or round cross section. Gaskets are made by die-compressing given amounts of mesh to produce solutions in a wide range of sizes and densities.
