Knitted wire over elastomer

If a high elasticity of the gasket is required, knitted wires over are used.

The elastomer core (e.g. solid or foamed silicone or foamed neoprene) is usually knitted with two layers of metal wire. The following wire types are available: , FCS, and .

If it is necessary to use a very soft seal, the use of PU foam is recommended.

  • High elasticity of the gasket
  • Standard two-layers knitted elastomer
  • For particularly soft gaskets, the use of PU foam with single layer coating is recommended
  • Solid silicone, foamed silicone and foamed neoprene available as elastomer
