Dymax FIP/CIP gaskets selector guide - .PDF file.

Intertronics has introduced Dymax Ultra-Light-Weld GA-145, a UV/visible light cure form-in-place (FIP) or cure-in-place (CIP) gasket originally designed for fuel-cell sealing applications. Demonstrating excellent bond strength to metals, glass and polycarbonate, GA-145 is typically used in sealing fuel-cell plates and stacks, automotive door handles, appliance housings and critical electronic assembly and device applications.

Dymax GA-145 is a chemical and moisture-resistant gasket, which is formulated to be tack free, yet soft and flexible, with low outgassing after cure.

It can be dispensed in intricate and complex configurations with the added benefit of in-line curing, which allows for increased production speed and reduced inventories.

The material cures in seconds on demand, eliminating the need for racking of long-curing components and the waste associated with poorly fitting or improper alignment of die-cut gaskets.

In-line cure or desktop flood and spot-cure UV light systems are available to match GA-145 requirements. These can simplify the installation and optimise the UV/visible light balance to ensure fast, deep cures with maximum reliability.

Key product features

  • Dymax GA-145 demonstrates excellent bond strength to metals, for example, aluminium or stainless steel, and also to glass and polycarbonate.
  • The material is resistant to high-temperature and high-moisture environments while maintaining superior adhesion and flexibility.
  • It exhibits low outgassing and low shrinkage, which results in reduced stress on the fuel-cell plate, stack housing, appliance housing, or electronic assembly.
  • On cure, Dymax GA-145 provides translucent colour and excellent tear resistance.
