EMI/RFI shielded mesh foil windows

Series

Width of the visible area in mm.
Length of the visible area in mm.
Single windows, 1, 2, 3 or 4 mm. Stepped windows 2, 3, 4, 6, or 8 mm. Other thickness on request.
Specify the mesh wire angle in degrees. Standard is 0 degrees. For LCD displays, 17°, 35° or 45° are used typically.

For the highest possible EMI / RFI shielding performance, a woven electrically conductive microstructure of mesh is bonded between two layers of glass or plastic (stepped double layered window). The EVA combined with the mesh will work as reinforcement for the glass. Alternatively, a single layer of Mesh foil 9000 series is fixed onto one side of a single glass or plastic window with self-adhesive (single layered window).

This can be done by laminating or edge bonding. The EMI-shielded mesh-foil windows can be provided with a silver bus bar, an electrically conductive gasket or can be supplied with a frame for easy mounting. Windows can optionally be provided with a water seal.


Window types
EMI/RFI shielded mesh foil windows types
Single layer: Wire mesh fixed onto one side of a glass or plastic window Double layer: Wire mesh bonded between two glass or plastic windows
Note that it is also possible to laminate the wire mesh
under a custom angle to prevent moiré effect on for example monitors or LCD displays.

Please note: top layer can be affected by acid for example from the human skin. To protect the conductive layer, you can apply a transparent film or use the adhesive side on top. Max. working temperature 60 ºC.

Small optical defects are allowed in this product. If you require a product that has absolutely no optical defect then contact us for the "superior selected quality". Please realize that by the extreme caution taken in production, these products can be several times more expensive.

 Light transmission

Opacity of mesh windows is 64.5%. A lack of available light should not be a concern, since an average pair of sunglasses allows less than 9% light to come through.


Applications
  • LCD displays
