The AMESSeal programmable liquid delivery system functions by automatically dispensing and bonding a thin bead of low-durometer elastomers directly onto metal, graphite, or polymer substrates. Compared to traditional die-cut or molded gaskets, the AMESSeal system creates a 50% decrease in possible sources of leakage. A customer’s available selection of silicone or fluoroelastomer materials, depending on the temperature and chemical resistance characteristics required for their specific needs, makes the AMESSeal system applicable to a variety of fuel cell applications.
Ames also offers the AMESSeal gasketing system in a multi-layer composite version, which combines the compliance and sealing of silicone with the improved chemical and temperature resistance and durability of a fluoroelastomer, ensuring integrity of sealing over the entire gasket surface. Beads with a height tolerance of .05mm are applied in various sizes with height-to-width ratios ranging from 1:1.5 to 1:6. In addition, adhesion levels can be tailored to satisfy specific sealing needs. Multiple beads can be applied side-by-side, and custom size beads are also available.
