Products: Connector Gaskets | DC Series

General Information

Our range of connector gaskets includes precision diecut gaskets made from a large selection of materials, both conductive and non-conductive.

The DC Series comprises waveguide and connector gaskets to MIL-C-81511, MIL-C-5015, MIL-C-38999 and MIL-C-26482 plus industry standard configurations including BN, BNC, D, WG, WR, IEC, UG, AN and special profiles cut to customers specifications.

Applications

Generally connector gaskets are cut from thin reinforced materials, such as Aluweave or Monex, to ensure that the compressive forces exerted ion the connector do not distort the gasket. However, for certain applications S or E Range materials are selected for their specific properties.

Most gaskets can be made from all standard materials but it is important to consider the 'land-width' around the periphery of a connector gasket if Aluweave or Monex are specified. In some instances, where a gasket has fixing holes on each corner, the holes are extended outwards to slots, which helps to prevent damage to the gasket during production and fitting.

DC gaskets are fitted in the normal manner and particular care should be taken when passing a gasket over a threaded connector body. Avoid the use of conductive adhesives as they tend to adversely affect the sealing characteristics of most types of gasket.
