Whether insulating against high termperature zones or shielding against electromagnetic disturbances, the potential applications for knitted wire meshes are extremely diverse. EMI/RFI shields are, for example, utilized in the automotive industry to protect sensitive components from disruptive interferences.
Sealing cord in high termperature zones
The advantage of this product is to be found in the dynamics during thermal load. Combinations of knitted wire mesh and fiberglass materials have proven reliable for years. Our sealing cords can be supplied in the following versions:
- External diameter of 1 mm to 50 mm - thermal resistance to 1100° C
- Wire mesh versions in all metal cord or tube cord
- External sheath with fiberglass knit
- Can be supplied in rolls or tailormade to customer requirements
EMI/RFI shields made of knitted wire mesh or knitted wire mesh combinations provide sensitive components protection against disturbing electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI). Utilized materials include copper, copper-beryllium, steel, precious metals, Monel® and aluminum. The advantages to using knitted meshes are:
- Flexibility during assembly and during service life
- Very good conductivity
- highly durability
- corrosion resistant
DHD knitted wire meshes are utilized in machine construction not only for the reduction of disruptive acoustic vibrations but also to dampen schock and to position heat shields. Moreover, knitted wire meshes are resistant to acids, leaching and oils and have thermal resistance up to 1200°.
