04 February 2010

Emka have announced their 1016 self-adhesive gasket is now available in fire resistant versions to UL94 VO and 94HB ratings, also in EMC formats to address electrical and magnetic interference. The expanded closed-cell neoprene comes in stock strips from 3mm to 80mm thick and in standard widths from 10mm up to 80mm, with complete custom capability, e.g. for sheets and punched shapes.

EMC versions of the 1016 program have a conductive external skin in order to attenuate the transmission of electro-magnetic interference across the sealed junction. Expected applications for 1016 gasket range from gap sealing to noise reduction, e.g. from internal equipment; also vibration damping and impact cushioning on cabinets, furniture and machinery.

1016 series gaskets are produced in neoprene and EPDM, they are self-adhesive, i.e. to clean non-porous surfaces, such as painted/unpainted metal, plastics or to seal natural materials – varnished timber etc.

Neoprene utilised in the 1016 program tolerates working temperatures of +70°C to -30°C – with fire resistant versions capable within +85°C to -40°C, they offer substantial resistance to many typical commercial/industrial chemicals and gases.
