PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—Stockwell Elastomerics Inc. has released a new line of ultra-thin silicone rubber gaskets and seals for rugged displays, touchscreens and comparable sealing requirements.
The .01-inch and .02-inch gaskets and seals with pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive use Rogers Biscoe HT-6000 series silicone rubber. The adhesive tape is from 3M, the 9667MP series, and is .002-inches thick.
The gaskets and seals boast resiliency, low durometer, high-bond strength and a moisture-proof release liner to enable tight tolerances in meeting IP standards.
Sample swatches are available from Stockwell Elastomerics.
"The ultra-thin HT-6000 series silicone products with 3M9667MP high-performance acrylic adhesive can solve sealing challenges for designers of rugged hand-held and portable devices with displays and touchscreens," Chief Technical Officer Bill Stockwell said in a statement. "Further, these liquid silicone materials are platinum cure grades, often specified for their purity. Gaskets are fabricated using die cutting, water jet or tool-less flash cutting techniques."
For the gaskets and seals, Stockwell Elastomerics uses HT-6210, 10-durometer gray silicone rubber for sealing under low deflection force; HT-6220, 20-durometer black silicone rubber specified for environmental sealing; HT-6135, 35-durometer off-white or cream color silicone rubber with good elongation and tear properties; and HT-6240, 40-durometer clear silicone.
