Understanding Gasket Junction Design

Designing gaskets based on gasket junction design is an integral part of the production process, but it also rather complicated and confusing to create. Our talented team of engineers can help determine the best construction methods for building EMI Shielding and EMI Gaskets.

Under most circumstances, a gasketing surface should be recessed, rigid and as conductive as possible, which allows for the surface to completely house a gasket. Also, all metal surface mating should not be corrosive. If gaskets operate in the outside environment, all reaction products should be conductive and able to be penetrable through mechanical abrasion.

Gaskets are needed when imperfect surfaces exist. Junctions that are imperfect require the help of gaskets more than designs that are ideal. A perfect junction has solidly welded closures, stiff mating surfaces, level, and with infinite conductivity across the main junction. Final building solutions are based on the performance needs and a business economic restraints.

One of the most important decisions to make is deciding on flange materials. We can help you make these decisions. Give us a call now, and we can discuss EMI Shielding and EMI Gaskets for your next project. We custom design plans and products based off the specific needs of our clients.
