Gasketing

Gasketing

Form-in-Place (FIP) and Cure-in-Place (CIP) gaskets are used in many medical, military, aerospace and industrial applications.

Gasket Makers

Form-in-Place (FIP) and Cure-in-Place (CIP) gasketing materials are used to form a gas and fluid-tight seal at a wide range of pressures and temperatures at the interface between two separate rigid structures, such as pumps and engines.

Precise beads of material are applied to surfaces, quickly curing and bonding to component assemblies for seamless sealing. Once cured, gaskets are resistant to moisture, exhibit low shrinkage, high cohesive strength and good resilience to thermocycling.

Techsil offers various flexible gasket solutions with formulations including silicones, anaerobic materials and UV and light curing materials for an instant cure.

 

Typical Gasketing Applications

Used in many medical, military, aerospace and industrial applications to seal parts such as pumps, engines, electronics and lighting enclosures.

Examples of typical benefits include:

   -   FIP gaskets are a proven, low cost and high speed cure alternative to manually applied O-rings or expensive, complex pre-moulded gaskets
   -   Delivers a better strength-to-weight ratio compared to mechanical gasket seals and helps to improve efficiencies
   -   Useful for sealing complex 3D geometries that cannot be reliably sealed with conventional seals, gaskets, punched parts or weather seals
   -   Parts may be assembled or disassembled without affecting gasket integrity
   -   Fast curing
   -   Provides a high strength bond on numerous substrates and surface finishes
   -   Shorter lead times and significant assembly cost savings compared to O-ring or die-cut gasket installation
   -   Reduced gasket component inventory
   -   FIP gaskets will adhere to aluminium, steel, plastics, ceramics, glass, plated surfaces, painted surfaces, and other various substrates.

 

Key Characteristics of Gasketing Materials

   -   Chemical and moisture resistance

   -   Varying cure speeds and cure types
   -   Exceptional durability, environmental resistance
   -   Thermally conductive
   -   Prevents leakages

 

Types of Gasketing Materials Available

    -   Silicones
   -   Anaerobic materials
   -   UV and light curing materials for an instant cure
