Rampf foam gaskets provide optimum protection, easy handling

At the Rampf Polymer Solutions (Grafenberg, Germany) stand at K 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany, the spotlight will be on innovative sealing systems based on polyurethane and silicone. Visitors can also find out all about casting systems for filter manufacturing and bonding systems for assembly applications, sandwich elements and surface lamination.

“Our liquid and thixotropic sealing systems in the RAKU-PUR (polyurethane) and FAKU-SIL (silicone) ranges deliver efficient sealing, the highest level of quality and exceptionally easy handling,” said Albert Schmid, Key Technology Manager, Foam Gaskets. “With benefits including low water absorption, excellent adhesion, long-term temperature resistance and cost-effective processing, our systems are used by customers all over the world in industries including automotive, electrical/electronics, energy, packaging and household goods.”

Rampf foam gaskets are designed to comply with strict automotive industry requirements in terms of emissions and noise, vibration and harshness standards. Additionally, RAKU-PUR Speed foam gaskets have been developed specifically for the ultrafast production chains typical of this sector—they can be ready for use within three minutes of application. Applications include door-locking modules, brake lights, headlights, taillights, electrical enclosures, ignition coil covers, fuse boxes and ventilation grills.

Rampf foam gaskets for the electrical/electronics industry can be applied two and three dimensionally and meet all the requirements for flame-retardant materials to UL 94 (HF-1, HF-2, HBF). Many sealing systems in the Rampf portfolio also comply with the UL 50 and UL 50E test specifications for control cabinets and other electronics enclosures.

K show attendees can see these and many other applications at stand B26-03 in hall 7A.
