DYMAX Corp. has announced a new moisture-resistant gasketing resin for sealing electrical conduit boxes, appliance housings and critical electronic assemblies and devices. Ultra Light-Weld® GA-111 is a UV/Visible light-curable form-in-place (FIP) gasket developed for applications requiring low compression set, tack-free surface, and durable, reliable sealing. It is a soft gasket material that offers high adhesion to metals while providing a barrier to prevent absorption or penetration of air, dust, moisture, liquids and gaseous substances.

This gasketing material can be dispensed into intricate and complex configurations with the benefit of in-line curing, which allows for increased production speed, greater output, lower processing costs, and reduced inventories. It is a one-part resin, requiring no mixing. GA-111 is low out-gassing, cures in seconds, and its viscosity allows for varying bead heights.

DYMAX FIP gaskets cure completely in seconds, even in ¼”-thick beads. Designed for flat flanges or wide shallow grooves, permanent FIP gaskets can eliminate the delay experienced with slow-curing resins, as well as the design, inventory and labor expense associated with pre-cut gaskets. DYMAX gaskets cure faster and deeper than UV silicone, and do not release corrosive chemical by-products upon cure.
