Overview

Zipper-Mesh™ (PFR)
  • Military-grade jacketing for demanding environments
  • Flexible shielding mesh provides excellent EMI protection
  • Zipper closure system allows for toolless installation

Zipper-Mesh™ (PFR) cable shielding is a convenient and efficient method of providing EMI protection to harnesses and wire bundles. It is a highly-flexible shield constructed of 4-ply knitted wire mesh utilizing an internal shield overlap, an integral grounding strap, and a heavy-duty zipper closure. The zipper closure mechanism allows a toolless installation and easy re-entry for cable repair or modification.

The mesh jacket is protected with an outer jacket of flexible, flame-retardant PFR-18 polyurethane film. PFR-18 jacketing offers exceptional ruggedness, resistance to abrasion and most fluids, while exhibiting high flexibility in virtually any demanding environment. The military-grade material is an excellent choice for many nuclear, aerospace and military applications where PVC materials are not permitted. 

There are two options for shielding mesh: SHX-4 (SnCuFe) and SHX-4 (S/S). SHX-4 (SnCUFe) consists of tin-plated, copper-clad steel wire, while SHX-4 (S/S) consists of 304 stainless-steel wire. Both are extremely flexible and durable and have excellent EMI shielding performance from 500 KHz through 1 GHz. 

The operational temperature range of Zipper-Mesh™ (PFR) is -67°F to 225°F (-55°C to 107°C).
