EMI Seals & Gaskets in The Lighting Industry

Our High-Performance Closed Cell Silicone Sponge in lighting industry

The elastomer industry now offers a diverse selection of rubbers to lighting engineers, designers, and purchasers. With so many options available, it is critical to pick the exact specification of rubber with appropriate grades, forms, and thickness to maximize application performance.

It is critical to choose the proper material for LED lighting applications since electrical enclosures that fail to keep out water, moisture, or dust can result in considerable downtime and maintenance expenses. Our material engineers created a high-performance closed cell silicone sponge with several protective qualities, including heat and weathering resistance.

For the lighting market, our technical professionals have created an unrivalled unique silicone rubber solution. It has various protective characteristics, including resistance to heat and weathering. High heat resistant lighting necessitates a strong and dependable material, and we can develop, prototype, and test solutions that are tailored to your specific needs and lighting requirements.

Our closed cell silicone sponge has exceptional protective qualities, capable of meeting higher Intrusion Protection (IP) ratings, assuring high-quality sealing, minimal water absorption, and a reduced danger of water and dust ingress. London underground would require low smoke/low toxic materials in case there is a fire. This is where our more dedicated closed cell silicone sponge is used. Our exclusive Closed Cell Silicone sponge outperforms the HT800 (silicone foams) and BF1000 (low density silicone foams) in terms of sealing and flame retardancy.

Outdoor lighting, for applications like the hazardous area sector, will require gaskets that efficiently seal throughout the life of the device. Silicone foam and closed cell silicone sponge are commercially available in a variety of thickness and density ranges, giving the lighting designer a variety of alternatives.

IP code and UL94 V0 Rating (Flame and Fire resistance)

The increased usage of LEDs in both commercial and residential industries has changed the requirements for lighting and luminaires, enclosures, and seals and gaskets. Our lighting and luminaire gaskets and seals are custom-made to fit their individual housing or enclosure and may be built to fulfil even the most rigorous IP requirements.

A front panel gasket, enclosure door gasket, access panel gasket, gland plate gasket, or connection gaskets are all examples of enclosure gaskets. All of these factors must be taken into account if your enclosure is required to achieve UL or Def-Stan gasketing requirements. Our materials have undergone flammability testing (UL94 V0, EN and Def-Stan)

Because of our expertise in hazardous areas, our lighting and luminaire seals and gaskets are ideal for use in hard and demanding conditions where only the highest quality goods are allowed. We could assist in the initial design of the best lighting enclosure, or we can work with existing luminaires and lighting enclosures to build the best seal and gasket solution for the needs.

We have created IP-rated customer-specific solutions for high-pressure, high-temperature wash-down applications. These applications are dustproof and resistant to high-pressure and steam cleaning. In our small terminal IP68 box project, our innovative sealing system does not displace, thus the enclosure will keep its IP68 classification even after repeated opening and shutting, and it has been tested to mimic a 20-year life cycle.

We can work with you to select the best gasket or seal material for your lighting application based on your specs and tolerance needs. Speak with our technical teams to discuss how our experience designing lighting enclosures can be used to your lighting industry business applications.
