Compressed Mesh Gaskets

Compressed Mesh Gaskets

Chomerics compressed mesh gaskets provide excellent EMI shielding and grounding properties. Fabricated by seamlessly die compressing knitted wire mesh into a wide range of shapes and varied resiliencies, they are available in 7 standard metal wire choices. These choices include Monel, Ferrex® ( Chomerics trade name for tin-plated, copper-clad steel wire), stainless steel, aluminum, irridited aluminum, Inconel® 600 ( INCO’s trade name for nickel-chromium-iron wire) and silver plated brass. Parts are normally supplied as medium density, however soft and hard densities are available by varying the volume of compressed mesh. Rubber O-rings can also be compressed inside the mesh to further change the compression/deflection. Over molding a rubber or plastic around the compressed mesh part is a Chomerics capability. An optional crimping process of the knitted mesh prior to die compressing can add further resiliency.
