Wire Oriented Silicone

Wire Oriented Silicone

Fralock has developed a specialized product that incorporates the flexibility of Knitted Monel Wire Mesh, with the environmental sealing capability of silicone-filled woven wire mesh, called Silicone Filled Knitted Monel Wire Mesh. This material’s flexibility lends itself to be ideal for applications which require conforming properties around corners and edges. The silicone filled material both supports the knitted monel mesh, and allows the material to create an environmental seal as both a cover and a compression seal. Electrical conductivity is maintained on one surface for ease of grounding.

A composite of metal sheeting impregnated with an elastomer to yield a highly conductive, yet resilient Gasketing material for EMI/RFI shielding as well as a pressure and environmental seal. Fralock’s unique fabrication process allows for unmatched consistency in quality and performance. Available without elastomer filler for use in applications where an environmental seal is not necessary, or for use in applications as a low performance RF air filter.

Silicone Filled Applications

Designed for those specific applications where joint unevenness does not exceed .004 inches and/or where space restrictions occur. Conductivity is achieved on contact due to the protruding contact points, which lends to its use in nearly all types flat connectors.

While primarily suggested for use in gasket applications requiring high levels of attenuation along with a moisture seal, because of its economics, it is also recommended for commercial shielding. Order with or without PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive), in sheet, strip or custom form as you require.

Typical Uses of Conductive Foil Shielding Materials

  • Electrical bonding of seams
  • ESD Grounding
  • Shielding Wrap of Flex Cable
