C.E.L. stands out for the constant attention paid to the increasingly high demands and expectations of our customers. And it is to satisfy this that C.E.L. enriches the production service offered through the new FIPFG sealing system (Form In Place Foam Gasket) by Sonderhoff, designed to deposit a seal of Bicomponent Expanded Polyurethane directly (In Situ) on plastic and metal parts.
With this technology C.E.L. is able to provide your products with special protection levels against the penetration of fluids, humidity and dust that are difficult to reach with traditional methods, up to an IP67 degree of protection.
Thanks to this special sealing system it is possible to improve the hermetic properties of the products compared to the traditional punched gaskets, O-rings, rubber cords and other sealing systems. The polyurethane gasket deposited using the F.I.P.F.G. system it adheres perfectly to the plastic or metal surface on which it is dispensed, so component handling is improved and simplified in all subsequent assembly or maintenance phases.
It is possible to deposit the gasket, always ensuring perfect tightness, even on parts with geometries that are difficult to achieve with traditional methods. Thanks to the versatility of the dispensing process, it is also possible to make discontinuous sections of thickness during the path of the perimeter of the piece thanks to the possibility of varying the speed during the execution of the gasket. An efficient water tightness is often of vital importance for the finished product which must be produced with peculiar features such as elasticity and flexibility in order to adapt to irregular sealing profiles.
Other features, besides those previously mentioned, are the excellent chemical resistance to many aggressive elements, the absence of water absorption, aging resistance and UL approval.
