The resulting mesh is not only breathable, permeable, even and oriented; it can also be subjected to downstream processing stages without any problem.

Thanks to the application-specific combination of different materials in one structure, GKD’s hybrid meshes have improved resistance.

Hybridization offers two possible applications for nonconductive basic mesh designs. As such, a matrix of conductive materials can be integrated to act as Faraday components in order to provide shielding from electromagnetic radiation. Electrostatic charging is avoided or dissipated using specific material combinations.

GKD combines a basic metal structure with a polymer material such as PTFE in a YMAX weave, which, unlike a pure metal structure, also achieves finer filtration rates more reliably. Another positive effect is that material costs could be lowered by around 50%.
