Composites

KnitMesh Technologies work closely with a range of advanced materials and component manufacturers who require lightweight and strong raw materials for use in composites that are engineered specifically for use in  the harshest environments including extremes of temperature, vibration and/or exposure to corrosion.

The world’s leading corporations rely on companies with specialised capabilities in the production of industrial composites. Those companies, in turn, rely on KnitMesh to supply high quality knitted wire mesh components for inclusion in their sealing systems, thermal insulation, performance/racing cars and fire & smoke barrier products.

KnitMesh products are used extensively in the composites industry as:

  • Composite support layers
  • Forming devices
  • Insulation
  • Under-floor EMC screening
  • The flexible cores of aviation hatch and door seals
  • Furnace, oven or cryogenic seals
  • Current carriers or physical barriers in security composites
  • Anti-vandal protection layers in mass transit seating composites
  • Fuel cell and electro-chemical electrolysis substrates
  • Mesh & graphite combinations for valve seals
Applications

Security Composites

Knitted wire mesh can be used in security composites, for example blast resistant street furniture and anti-vandal passenger seating composites.

Aerospace Seals

KnitMesh Technologies manufacture a wide range of temperature resilient cores and gaskets used within the aviation sector, including special applications for aircraft hatch seals.

Our cores and gaskets have high elastic compression properties with almost no plastic deformation and can be made in a range of materials to suit a host of different temperature and corrosion requirements.

Fuel Cell Substrates

Some electro-chemical energy conversion devices that produce electricity, water and fuel, require an electrolyte resistant compressible element to optimise electrical and pressure contact between fuel cell components – our range of crimped nickel meshes are ideal for these applications.
