Dymax Corporation (Torrington, CT) is offering GA-201, a colorless, UV/Visible light-curable, tack free, moisture- and chemical-resistant FIP/CIP gasket for sealing heat sensitive substrates such as plastic enclosures. It replaces tapes, PSA die-cut gaskets, 2K epoxies, silicone rope, and RTV sealants, helping manufacturers reduce labor and part handling costs while increasing production throughput. Other features include:
- A low durometer, high elongation, silicon-free construction that is UL 157 recognized.
- The ability to act as a barrier to prevent absorption or penetration of air, dust, noise, liquids, and gaseous substances. It is hence ideal for sealing plastic, glass, and metal enclosures, as well as plated surfaces for automotive door handles, appliance housing and critical electronic assembly, and device applications that require a soft-tack-free, flexible gasket.
- Reliable protection, is easy to use (dispense and cure), cures without damaging heat-sensitive substrates, and accommodates design changes without investment in additional tooling. The material cures on demand, eliminating the need for racking and the waste associated with poorly fitting or improperly aligned die-cut gaskets.
