Concepts, Benefits, and Design Considerations for Pre-Applied Cured-in-Place Compression Gaskets 950122
CIP (cured-in-place) pre-applied gasketing is a new technology in today's industrial and automotive OEM marketplace. Even in its early stages, great benefits have been achieved by suppliers and end-users. Recent attention by adhesive and sealant manufacturers on new materials, application designs, and dispensing techniques have led to this flexible, just-in-time, automated gasketing process. This paper presents concepts, keywords, material overview, design considerations, and technological benefits to help design engineers successfully implement this technology.
