Zip-Mesh® (AL)

Drawing No. ZT97-03-004

EMI Shielding Tape, SnCu Mesh/Aluminum Foil, Adhesive Backed

Zip-Mesh® (Al) is a flexible, easy-to-use EMI Shielding tape of two-ply, woven Tinned-Copper mesh, separated by Aluminum polyester tape, with a self-adhesive material on one side. The material offers very low electrical resistance and is intended to compliment Zippertubing's "SH1" Foil and "SHX" Series of knitted wire mesh EMI Shields.

The tape allows joining of EMI-Shielded jacket sections at cable splices, branch-outs, and the transition to connector hardware. The standard tape widths are 1.0 and 2.0 inches with other sizes available on a custom basis.

This product has an operational temperature range of -40° to 175°C (-40° to 347°F).
