This plain square weave copper mesh can be used to build a Faraday cage for electrophysiology and other sensitive application setups to minimize the influence of external interferences such as electrostatic fields and high-frequency electromagnetic waves (e.g., AM/FM radio waves, CRT oscilloscopes, and fluorescent strip lights).

Constructed from Ø0.25 mm (0.01") copper wire with 1.4 mm (0.06") spacing, this mesh offers excellent thermal and electrical conductivity and provides high air flow, making it ideal for use in Faraday cage construction or other RFI screening applications. It can be readily soldered, is easily bent and formed into shapes, and can be cut to the desired size with scissors.

Do you ship to Canada? What is the cost? We use copper mesh in one of our experiments (since it won't react with 6 M HCl) and I am having trouble finding a supplier. Thank you for any info you can provide. Chris

I need to connect a shielded cable with a Deutsch (Military) connector housing. We would need a "tube", it will be placed inside the booth.

Response from Charles at Thorlabs: Hello and thank you for your query. You can use PSY405 cable port kit to allow entry of the cable but unfortunately we do not have anything designed specifically for such connectors. We will reach out to discuss your application and see if there is anything else in our range which may help.

Cable Port Kit

PSY405 Cable Port Fitted to Copper Mesh Sheet.

The PSY405 cable port kit allows ports to be added to the copper mesh to simplify routing of electrical cables and optical fibers. Each kit enables the creation of one port with a clearance of Ø1.75" (Ø44.4 mm).

To install a cable port, place one plate on either side of the enclosure's copper mesh and bolt them together. Then use a sharp blade or scalpel to cut away the mesh from the center aperture. Finally, fit the included protective rubber ring to the hole. A manual with detailed instructions is included with each cable port kit.
