electrical and RF systems require that joints between metallic
surfaces remain in good electrical contact and free from
range of HR Smith Gaskets provide the most simple and cost
effective means of producing the reliable good quality electric,
corrosion free joints that are essential for advanced RF
gasket consists of a highly conductive metal film specifically
contoured to provide multi-point metal to metal contact,
thus reducing RF circulatory currents. A state of the art
elastomeric sealant provides a moisture free joint during
installation. The pressure exerted during installation also
gives a unique self contouring feature to the gaskets. The
gasket precisely forms itself to the two metallic surfaces
ensuring consistent distribution of conducting contacts over
non parallel surfaces. The resulting moisture free contoured
RF seal needs no maintenance.
10-500-11 series and the 10-500-11A series (Dry fit, designed
for use where quick fit and fasturnaround are required) have
been subjected to extensive testing and with over 15 years
of successful operational service in the most severe naval,
land-based and airborne environments has proven market leading
performance and reliability.
