Alco Multi-Strip & Gasket

Alco Multi Strip and Gaskets are EMI/EMP environmental weather, dust and pressure seal gaskets fabricated into seamless die cut configurations or spliced assembled. Multi-strip and gaskets combine two or more materials. Knitted wire mesh in standard wire alloys, cross sections and size are bonded to your choice of elastomer. Alco Multi-Strip and Gaskets are easily mounted to an adjoining surface with Pressure Sensitive Adhesive. Alco Multi-Strip and Gaskets are recommended to seal enclosure openings, around door frames or removable panels. Due to a variety of combinations of elastomer and Alco-Knit, recommended minimum closure force for sponge cores is 10 psi and for solid core is 20 psi.
