Resistance to light (UV) Test IEC 60079:2011


We can now confirm officially that EMI Seals and Gaskets Ltd have successfully tested a number of materials to meet the Resistance to Light (UV) test requirements of IEC 60079-0: 2011: Clause 26.10 and IECEx Decision Sheet ExTAG DS 2012/011.

This means we can now proceed to update our existing IECEx TEST REPORT of PARTIAL TESTING number GB/BAS/ExTR13.0079/00 to also state that EMI Gasket Material EMI-01-255FR is UV resistant.

Along with our very special proprietary 401-255FR Closed Cell Silicone sponge we also tested a further six of our Rubber grades including, a Solid Silicone, a Solid Fluorosilicone, a Solid Fluorocarbon (Viton), a Silicone Sponge, a Fluorosilicone Sponge and finally a Fluorocarbon (Viton) Sponge.

All of these grades can be moulded, fabricated and bonded as well as cut into seals and gaskets.
