Gasketing Resin

GA-142-F

Light-Curable, Fluorescing, Soft, Sticky, Flexible Gasket


Dymax GA-142-F form-in-place (FIP) and cure-in-place (CIP) gasketing resin is formulated for electrical enclosures, HVAC ductwork, and automotive casing applications which require soft, sticky, flexible, low compression set. This gasket has good adhesion to plastic, metal, and ceramic surfaces. The resins can be dispensed into intricate and complex configurations with the added benefit of curing in-line which allows for increased production speed and reduced inventories. This product
fluoresces blue under low-intensity black light (365 nm). The blue fluorescence greatly assists with visual inspection of the gasket area.

Dymax materials contain no nonreactive solvents and cure upon exposure to light. Their ability to cure in seconds enables faster processing, greater output, and lower assembly costs. When cured with Dymax light-curing spot lamps, focused- beam lamps, or flood lamps, they deliver optimum speed and performance for maximum efficiency. Dymax lamps offer the optimum balance of UV and visible light for the fastest, deepest cures.

This product is in full compliance with RoHS directives 2015/863/EU.

Property Values
Viscosity (nominal) 40,000 cP
Cured durometer hardness 00-60
Cured compression set (85°C, 22 hr.) * 34%
Recommended substrates Plastics (ABS, PC, PET, PP); Metals; Nylon 6/6
* Compression set is expressed as percentage of deflection per ASTM D395 Method B at 25% deflection. To determine percent recovery, subtract 1/4 of the value from 100%. For example, the recovery is 98.8% with a 5% compression set.
