Woven Wire Cloth is frequently utilized in applications requiring shielding of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI).
The reduction or exclusion of Electro-magnetic interference and/or radio frequency interference is dependent upon the signal amplitude and frequency in relation to the many combinations of mesh count, wire diameter and weaving materials available.
The most popular materials for EMI/RFI shielding and ground plane applications include pure copper, nickel plated copper, silver plated copper, brass, nickel plated low carbon steel, stainless steel and nickel plated stainless steel.
