Multi-Point IV Aluminum Combination Gasketing

Conductive metal mesh strip crimped into either one or both edges of an aluminum frame or mounting strip. Optionally available with shielding strip in one edge and an elastomer pressure or weather sealing strip in the other. Ideal for shielding sheet metal enclosures where semi-rigid gasketing provides added stability.


Multi-Point IV Aluminum Combination Gasketing comprises a length of knitted wire mesh securely crimped into the edge of an extruded aluminum mounting strip. The mesh may be all metal, usually monel, SnCuFe, or aluminum; or it may be an elastomer core which provides extra resilience and a partial seal against rain and dust. Additionally, the wire gasketing may be inserted in both edges of an aluminum mounting strip, to provide a double electromagnetic seal; or the second gasket may be a plain elastomer strip (silicone or neoprene) which provides a separate pressure or weather seal.


The extruded aluminum strip serves as a convenient means for mounting by spotwelds, rivets, bolts, or sheet metal screws. In addition, the strip serves as a compression stop to prevent undue pressure on the mesh gasket. It also stiffens the surface to which it is attached, thereby serving as a load-bearing element in the structure, able to meet most shock and vibration requirements.


Multi-Point IV gasketing is commonly supplied in custom fabricated strips or frames ready to install. Holes are drilled, or other machining performed as required. Multi-Point IV gasketing can also be provided in bulk lengths, fabricated to the customer's specifications.
