Ultra-elastic urethane closed-cell sponge gaskets
Sylodyn® GC Urethane materials are comprised of a unique closed cell polyurethane foam. The unique properties of Sylodyn® allow the material to deliver sealing performance that is beyond that achievable from current open cell urethane products and traditional closed-cell rubber or silicone products. These properties result in a superior urethane gasket.
Vibration, shock and temperature cycles cause unwanted flange flexing, resulting in leaks with traditional gasket materials. Truly effective gasket installations must seal for the long-term, handling relative motion between the flange components. Using the ultra-elastic Sylodyn® GC urethane materials, CRGI fabricates urethane gaskets that provide superior performance with both initial seal and adaption to change.
Urethane gaskets fabricated from Sylodyn® materials eliminate the need to compress typical open-cell urethane forms to ideal laboratory compression specifications in order to seal. Sylodyn® materials perform in working equipment across a wide range of dynamic conditions. The combination of elasticity, fast recovery, closed-cell structure and vibration damping makes gaskets fabricated from Sylodyn® an excellent choice for today’s application demands,
Specific advantages of urethane gaskets fabricated from Sylodyn® include the following:
Closed-cell construction seals gas and liquid.
Superior resistance to compression set and creep caused by mating flange compression forces.
Absorbs vertical and horizontal loading at high frequencies, maximizing long-term dynamic sealing capability.
Micro-sized closed-cells blocks leak paths in extremely narrow gasket widths.
Superior compression force retention over silicone closed-cell material at lower cost.
Excellent abrasion resistance and tear strength maintains long-term material integrity.
Select from many GC durometer choices to seal a wider range of applications with low, medium, or high flange loads.
Applications for which urethane gaskets fabricated from Sylodyn® are particularly well-suited include the following:
Military vehicle window seals.
Automobile tail light seals.
Touch pad gaskets.
Portable electronics housing seals.
High-speed camera gaskets.
HVAC gaskets in tractors.
Vacuum lifter gaskets.
Battery charger damping seal for vibrating plates.
