Gore’s hydrophobic and oleophobic stick-on vents can improve the reliability and longevity of your sealed outdoor electronic devices, in two ways:
- They allow air to flow freely into and out of sealed enclosures, equalizing pressures to reduce seal stress, and reducing condensation.
- They reliably protect sensitive electronics against ingress of damaging water, salts, corrosive fluids or particulates to enable compliance with industry standards.
These low-profile stick-on air vents offer flexible integration options that can meet the needs of almost any outdoor electronic enclosure, including thin-walled enclosures. These vents install quickly and easily on an enclosure’s interior or exterior, using manual or automated processes. Their low-outgassing adhesives form a strong and durable bond to a wide variety of housing materials, providing reliable performance over time in a broad range of challenging applications:
- Public, Commercial and Industrial Lighting
- Telecommunications Towers, Systems and Components
- Solar, Energy Grid and Batteries
- Heavy-Duty Construction, Material Handling and Agricultural Equipment
- Surveillance, Security, Tracking and Monitoring Systems
- Gas Sensors for Analytical and Environmental Monitoring.
