All-Metal Compressed Wire Mesh 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.

Wide range of materials

KnitMesh Technologies produces all metal compressed wire mesh gaskets in a wide range of materials. These include: Monel, Tin Plated Copper Clad Steel (SN-FE-CU), Tinned Copper, Stainless Steel, Brass, Silver-Clad Copper, Aluminium and Copper. Other materials, such as Nickel-Plated Copper and Phosphor Bronze, are available to special order.
