SOFT-SHIELD 2000 gaskets consist of silver-plated nylon yarn knitted over a highly compressible, thermoplastic EPDM foam core. Through a special treatment process, the yarn jacket is secured to the core. This self terminating outer layer eliminates the need for secondary termination efforts and metal particle debris associated with the cut ends of common wire mesh gaskets. SOFT-SHIELD 2000 gaskets are designed specifically for EMI shielding electronic enclosures where weather sealing is not a requirement. The low closure force characteristic of SOFT-SHIELD 2000 gaskets allows enclosures to be designed with fewer fasteners and/or thinner panels. Configurations: Standard SOFTSHIELD 2000 gaskets include both rectangular and D cross sections. Gaskets are provided in bulk on spools or cut to specified lengths. For attachment to flanges or other mounting surfaces, these gaskets are available with an acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) option for quick, efficient application. Gaskets can also be produced as 4-corner spliced picture frames.
