Gore® Protective Vents
Equalize enclosure pressure
Sealing Devices Inc. is the North American distributor of W.L. Gore Protective Vents. We’ve built a strong partnership with Gore® to be able to offer Gore® Vents and complimentary sealing solutions to customers.
Gore® Vents let sealed enclosures ‘breathe,’ allowing airflow in and out. Membrane vents eliminate pressure differentials created when sealed enclosures are exposed to rapid, recurring changes in environmental conditions. They are able to manage the internal pressure in mobile and outdoor electronics enclosure, packaging and other components. To increase reliability and prevent deformations that could cause component failure.
Benefits of Gore® Vents
- Virtually eliminate condensation
- Rapid pressure equalization
- Block contaminants: water, dust, dirt, liquids
- Protect against ‘board level’ electronics failures
- Install easily into existing housing designs
- Eliminate hazardous gas build up
- Improve seal performance to eliminate seal failure
- Good for altitude change pressure elimination
- Eliminate vacuum in enclosures
Low-profile Adhesive Vents are available in both standard and custom designs, offering the most flexible options: for manual or automated installation, for interior or exterior mounting on enclosures, and for adhesion to rough or smooth substrates.
The Snap-In Series delivers fast reliable installation and durable protection for enclosure volumes of all sizes: from less than 0.5 liters up to 30 liters. Ideal for high-throughput or manual production, the Snap-In Series offers multiple performance options, including new PolyVent XS: a compact, low-profile vent for today’s smaller, thinner-walled, lighter-weight enclosures.
The Screw-In Series offers a variety of performance options that durably withstand mechanical stresses and rugged environments. They all provide oleophobic membranes and are hydrolytically-stable, UV- and temperature-resistant. Compare all the PolyVent options, including the enhanced GORE® PolyVent Stainless Steel, now top-rated “IK10” for mechanical impact resistance. It provides exceptional protection that helps enclosures up to 20 liters withstand the toughest mechanical and environmental conditions.
