Design Parameters for Successful FIP Gasketing 930121
The introduction of “Formed-in-Place” (FIP) technology in the 1970's led to development of many automotive, marine, and industrial powertrain applications. To encourage further growth of FIP gasketing, numerous production applications have been carefully analyzed; their design and processing details documented. Presented with a review of anaerobic and RTV silicone capabilities, this information bridges the gap from FIP theory to practice. It offers powertrain engineers the parameters necessary to successfully design, test and manufacture FIP gasketed assemblies.
