Sealing Strips & Grommets

GelTek_Sealing_strips_grommetsSilicone sealing grommets and strips

Resin Designs ® connector seal grommets and sealing strips provide sealing and corrosion protection for indoor and outdoor equipment, including connectors and electrical components. The material is cold-applied like conventional tapes and grommets or gaskets, yet it has sealing capabilities similar to high-performance potting compounds and is superior in conformability to traditional elastomeric gaskets. This material is unique among high-performance sealing materials because of its ease of use and its ability to conform, coat and self-heal, yet still be easily re-entered. Extensive testing has shown that Resin Designs brand gel materials provide an effective barrier against corrosion. Even in damp environments, the gel coats surfaces as it is applied to form a tight environmental seal.

Connector Seal Grommets for Electrical Contact and Wire Seals

Resin Designs connector seal grommets provide sealing and corrosion protection for miniaturized multiway connectors and cable entries. They are used in connectors for grommet, perimeter and face seal applications, replacing the need for individual wire seals, multiwire block seals (and related cost for sealing plugs) or mold-in-place sealants. Resin Designs connector seal grommets’ self-healing characteristics allow for multiple insertions and extractions of the connector contact while maintaining a seal with the contact removed or reinserted. Mechanical, electrical, chemical and thermal testing, as well as use on production connectors, has shown that connector seal grommets form a re-enterable, tight environmental seal. They are ideal for automotive underhood electronics, commercial connectors and electrical interface applications. The grommet consists of a three-layer laminate: the middle layer is a thick, soft silicone gel with excellent sealing capabilities under compression; the thin top and bottom layers allow easier handling of the grommet as a whole, while reducing insertion force.
