Wire Oriented Silicone Gaskets

What is Wire Oriented Silicone?

Wire Oriented Silicone is a silicone solid or sponge elastomer constructed of individual wires imbedded within the silicone. The EMI shielding is created by the wire, and the environmental and pressure seal is created by the elastomer. The wires are oriented perpendicular to the mating surface.

The density of the wires embedded in the silicone gasket affects the EMI shielding and is closely controlled during the manufacturing process. This guarantees the right shielding properties and gasket quality. Our wire-oriented silicone gaskets are manufactured to exacting tolerances to ensure they give you the sealing and shielding properties you’re looking for.

When you’re choosing your silicone gaskets, be sure to consider all the important criteria, including:

  • Wire count (per square inch)
  • Maximum sealing pressures
  • Temperature range
  • Shielding requirements
  • Compression set

You may also be concerned with the type of adhesive used, so we can provide gaskets with or without acrylic adhesive to suit your application.

JEMIC Recommended Wire Oriented Silicone Applications

Gaskets manufactured with wire-oriented silicone are used in many applications. Our silicone solid and sponge elastomer gaskets with integrated oriented wires cover a broad range of situations, which can include:

  • EMI Shielding requiring an environmental or pressure seal
  • Severe sealing surface unevenness
  • Low, medium or high operating pressures
  • Wire density and distribution

Our team of experts can help you choose the wire-oriented silicone gaskets you need for your unique application. You’ll find our products in use in many demanding environments and across a number of industries, including:

  • Military equipment and installations
  • Industrial machines and buildings
  • Commercial consumer products such as laptops and computers

On top of excellent EMI shielding for your critical installations, we can also provide you with the quality gaskets that meet your requirements for a range of physical properties:
