Clip on Mesh
Kemtron have launched a new clip on knitted wire mesh RFI/EMI shielding gasket strip. It is a very flexible, easily compressible sponge EPDM tubular or bulb type gasket strip with a steel spring clip covered with a double knitted wire mesh layer for RFI/EMI shielding. The clip on gasket strip is supplied by EMKA who offer superior quality and consistency of their gasket strips, Kemtron double knit the wire mesh over the strip at their Braintree factory.
This clip on seal provides a good RFI/EMI shield for enclosures and electrical cabinets. The soft hollow bulb profile requires low closure force and makes the product particularly suitable for door applications where frequent opening and closing is required. The clip on gasket is easy to fit and will bend up to 90 degrees. The knitted wire mesh gives very low contact resistance between mating surfaces ensuring good shielding.
The choice of wire mesh material available also allows for a good galvanic match with mating flanges, thereby limiting the possibility of corrosion between gasket and flange. Knitted wire choices are Monel, Stainless steel, Aluminium and tin plated copper clad steel.
