9000 Series Trimshield Gaskets Mesh on Aluminum Frame
Trimshield EMI Shielding is a composite material made from resilient knitted wire mesh strips which are retained in an aluminum extrusion. It is ideal for use when a rigid gasket is required. The aluminum extrusion acts as a compression stop for the mesh to minimize compression set. Neoprene or silicone sponge may be used for an environmental seal.
Trimshield Strips can be supplied in lengths of up to approximately eight feet. The knitted mesh EMI portion diameter may vary from 0.125 to 0.625 inches. Elastomer/knitted mesh combination should be used for the lower compression force gaskets and to achieve minimum compression set.The extrusion itself can be drilled or punched to suit your specific requirements.
Applications range from small equipment gaskets to seals for personnel access doors.
