Seals That Prolong Switch Life
Englewood, NJ, February 18, 2005 ... APM HEXSEAL; is pleased to announce the expansion of its line of silicone rubber sealing boots and custom dynamic seals for switches, potentiometers, and circuit breakers... all of which protect and prolong the life of these electromechanical components in harsh stressful environments.
According to John Arnold, APM National Sales manager, "more sizes, and configurations have been added to the line to satisfy the ever expanding application of these components throughout the world. Dust, dirt, moisture, salt air, ice, snow, fungus, lubricants and solvents ... take a toll on delicate contact mechanisms, thus reducing their life and reliability." Arnold further stated, "frequently overlooked is the need to also seal the control's mounting hole to prevent seepage from the elements as well as accidental spillage of coffee and cokes that can easily penetrate and contaminate delicate circuitry mounted below. In our new global economy, the world is our proving ground, and we're constantly being asked to solve and design dynamic custom silicone seals that also embrace associated components such as connectors and back planes."
HEXSEALģs are extensively used in airborne, medical, military, off & on-road heavy equipment, processing industry and a myriad of in-plant and commercial product applications. Available in matching panel colors/functions, they are UL listed, QPL approved, and meet the most stringent applicable MIL-Specs.
