Enclosure Security: Liquid Gasketing.
What is a Foam in Place Gasket or Liquid Gasket? Liquid gasketing is a growing trend that is not only a cost-effective way to replace molded, die cut and other types of gaskets in automotive and other applications, but adds an extra line of defensive to ensure the safety of your electronics within your steel enclosure. One or two-component materials, including urethanes, elastomers and silicones, are used to form a strong perfect seal that prevents leaking, drips, and seepage, all while keeping the outside environment from encroaching on the system and the electronic components inside the unit. Foam-in-place gasketing is generally accomplished with a two-component silicone or polyurethane, but there are other ways to accomplish the same seal as well.
Foam-in-Place-Gasket (thixotropic) is a two component modified polyurethane resin that serves as the ultimate gasket for various enclosures, including UL Type 12, 4, and 4X.
