Knitted metal wire shielding strips are available in a large number of materials and a vast range of cross sections. The solid wire knitted strip is almost as elastic as the knit-covered elastomer strip. The knit-covered elastomeres like neoprene sponge rubber cords, silicone foams and tubes combine outstanding compressibility with the conductivity of knit metal wires. These gaskets are an ideal contact material in order to establish conductivity between a rack and a removable cover. The knitted strips ensure continuous and complete shielding.
They are recommended for contacts that are not often interrupted but not as weather seals.
