The Metal Tech “Armor” series of products consist of perforated metal outer layers applied mechanically to one or both sides of a compressible center layer material. Available with carbon or stainless steel, the high strength steel outer layer protects the inner sealing layer for long term performance. Armor is typically used in robust, high temperature applications where scrubbing due to thermal expansion is a concern. Based on your application needs, Armor can withstand or dissipate extreme heat. These products can be considered for designing both gaskets and heat shielding.
