Alco-Knit Elastomer Core

Alco-Knit Elastomer Core is a resilient, compressible conductive EMI gasket. Elastomer cores, solid or hollow are covered with knitted wire mesh to form a pliable dust and weather seal. Standard wire alloys provide shielding and the selection of core material provides compression. Alco-Knit Elastomer Core is appropriate for openings, doors or other enclosure applications requiring shielding flexibility for repeatable access. Alco-Knit Elastomer Core is supplied spooled, cut to length or as a formed gasket.

*Sn/Cu/Fe provides optimum shielding in H-Field environments.
*Not recommended as a pressure seal.
