New Gasketing Materials Selector Guide Streamlines Product Selection

28 July 2015

Dymax has released a new gasketing materials selector guide, that provides useful product information and simplifies the product selection process.

According to Dymax, light-curable form-in-place, cure-in-place gasketing materials are used in automotive, mobile device, lighting, electrical device, HVAC, energy, and industrial hardware applications. They are designed for automated dispensing to support high-volume production and consistency in bead profile for single-wall, flat-surface, or channel configurations.

Dymax explains that the gasketing materials act as a barrier to prevent absorption or penetration of air, dust, noise, liquids, gaseous substances, or dirt. The gaskets conform to complex and intricate channels, on both vertical and horizontal surfaces, with thixotropic formulations, and flow into channels with Newtonian formulations. It says that this technology accommodates engineering changes without high tooling investment, helping to reduce costs, and turning problems like production throughput into non-issues. Dymax one-part, 100% solids gasket resins are described as silicone free and replace technologies that contain hazardous ingredients, produce waste, and require higher amounts of energy to process.
