ElectroMet oriented wire gaskets are EMI shielding and sealing composites. Monel or aluminum wires embedded in the elastomer and oriented perpendicular to the mating surfaces provide the EMI sealing. Solid or sponge silicone provides the weather sealing; however, solid silicone weather seals are recommended for high-pressure applications. Silicone based oriented wire composites are capable of withstanding temperature ranges from ...
Oriented wire can be supplied as a die-cut gasket in various configurations. Gasket sizes are available up to 9 in. (228.6 mm) X 36 in. (914.4 mm).Several of the most common die-cut gaskets are for cable connectors and Sub-D connectors
ElectroMet impregnated wire mesh and expanded metal gaskets are available in thin sheet form. EMI shielding is provided by woven aluminum mesh or expanded metals. Pressure sealing is provided by neoprene or silicone elastomer impregnated in the mesh. Fluorosilicone is also available for specific applications that require resistance to oils, hydraulic fluids and hydrocarbon fuels.
Laird Technologies offers a broad range of EMI gasket materials to fit the shell sizes of standard MIL connectors. Holes closer to edges than 2x material thickness will be made as “u” slots at Laird Technologies option.
