FIP/CIP Gasket with See-Cure Technology from Dymax
Torrington, CT — Dymax has introduced GA-140-SC, a UV/Visible light-curable, Form-In-Place and Cure-In-Place gasket. Formulated with patented See-Cure technology, the gasket material is bright blue in an uncured state, enabling automated vision systems and manual operations to confirm placement prior to cure. As the product cures with sufficient exposure, its blue color transitions to clear and provides obvious visual confirmation that the adhesive is fully cured and the bond site is secure.

According to the company, GA-140-SC demonstrates excellent bond strength to metals, glass, and most plastics. It's typically used in sealing applications on fuel cell plates and stacks, automotive door handle and side-mirror assemblies, and appliance housings, as well as in critical electronic assembly and device applications. The material is resistant to high-temperature and high-moisture environments while maintaining superior adhesion and flexibility. It exhibits low shrinkage, resulting in reduced stress on the fuel cell plate, stack housing, appliance housing, or electronic assembly.

This chemical-and moisture-resistant gasket 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 on demand, eliminating the need for racking slow-curing alternatives and the waste associated with poorly fitting or improperly aligned die-cut gaskets.
