DYMAX: Gasket

May 1, 2013

This company has introduced Ultra Light-Weld®GA-145, a UV/visible light-curable form-in-place and cure-in-place gasket for fuel cell sealing applications. This chemical- and moisture-resistant gasket is formulated to be tack free, yet soft and flexible, with low outgassing after cure. It can reportedly be dispensed in intricate and complex configurations, with the added benefit of in-line curing, which can allow for increased production speed and reduced inventories. The material can cure on demand, eliminating the need for racking long-curing alternatives and the waste associated with poorly fitting or improperly aligned die-cut gaskets.

GA-145 reportedly shows bond strength to metals, glass, and PC, and is typically used in sealing fuel cell plates and stacks, automotive door handles, appliance housings, and critical electronic assembly and device applications.
