Sealing Materials for Lighting

Effective sealing materials for lighting are essential for preventing dust or moisture from seeping into a lighting component.  Any seepage could cause the component to suffer from damage or even failure, often resulting in costly replacement fees.  At CB Frost, we ensure that we carefully choose the appropriate enclosure and gasket materials for the relevant seal design to ensure that the seal is effective for a long period of time.

Each type of material offers different qualities, properties and characteristics which result in different sealing capabilities.  Some of our most commonly used sealing materials for lighting are:

BISCO Silicones and PORON Urethanes

At CB Frost, we commonly utilise BISCO Silicones and PORON Urethanes as lighting gasket materials as they are already certified for use under a range of standards.  The fact that the materials already have the relevant certification means that the screening process can be simplified, as it removes the need to test each individual material used within the component.

Manufactured parts which include BISCO Silicones and PORON Urethanes should continue to perform to a high standard even after constant and repeated deflection, meaning that sealing integrity should be maintained at all times.
