Oriented Wire Shield

Oriented Wire Shield

Oriented Wire Shield 5711 – 5722

Silicone sheet material with oriented wires for EMI shielding and IP sealing. Can be cut into complicated shapes by CNC knife cutting, laser cutting and/or water jet cutting, or die-cut.

Our Oriented wire shield 5711 – 5722 is a composite gasket material consisting of a large number of small wires embedded and bonded in solid or sponge silicone, or fluorosilicone elastomer for oil resistance. The wires provide excellent conductivity to establish EMI/RFI shielding. It is very convenient to use as you can cut into complicated shapes by CNC knife cutting, laser cutting, water jet cutting or die-cut.


The material is used in military, industrial and commercial products the require EMI suppression, grounding, or static discharge. It is very suitable for applications where an environmental or pressure seal is required.


The sponge version is used in cases where the joint is very uneven, or if lower closure forces or greater compressibility is required.


We offer sheets of 150 x 900mm, from which the gaskets can be cut without interruptions. Bigger gaskets can be welded/joined together in order to prevent material waste.

Custom compositions are also available on request. Simply contact us below and provide a drawing of your desired dimension. 

Available thicknesses:

0.81, 1.13, 1.38, 1.57, 2.40, 3.18, 3.96, 4.78, 6.35 mm. Other thicknesses on request.
