Knitted metal wire shielding strips are available in a large number of materials and a vast range of cross sections. The solid wire knitted cord is almost as elastic as the knit-covered elastomer cord.
The knit-covered elastomeres like neoprene sponge rubber cords, silicone foams and hoses 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 cords ensure continuous and complete shielding. They are recommended for contacts that are not often interrupted but not as weather seals.
