Zip-Mesh® is a flexible, easy-to-use EMI Shielding tape of two-ply, woven Tinned-Copper mesh, separated by either Aluminum or Copper 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, branchouts and the transition to connector hardware. The standard tape width is 1.0 inch with other sizes available on a custom basis. This product has an operational temperature range of -40° to 175°C (-40° to 347°F).

Zip-Mesh™ is a highly flexible, easy-to-use EMI shielding knitted-mesh tape comprised of two-ply, 36 AWG woven tinned-plated copper mesh with a high-temperature, solvent-resistant adhesive backing. The knitted mesh design creates a highly flexible shield that unlike many tubular braids will not change its attenuation performance when articulated.
Zip-Mesh™ knitted-mesh tape is ideal for applications where high flexibility in repair locations, splices, branch-outs, or transitions is needed. Although this product comes standard in 1.0” and 2.0” tape widths from our website, custom sizes, shapes and lengths are also available by contacting us directly.
Zippertubing’s Zip-Mesh™ is intended to complement Zipper-Mesh™ and other SHX knitted-mesh series products.
This product has an operational temperature range of -40° to 149°C (-40° to 300°F).
