Pre-Cured Polyurethane Conductive Specialty Gaskets for Your Avionics Repairs and Immediate Maintenance Applications in High-Pressure Environments.

Av-DEC HI-TAK polyurethane conductive specialty gaskets are designed for a wide range of applications in the aviation industry. These gasket systems are die cut using varying designs to effectively protect avionics systems and hardware from corrosive environmental agents. The conductive specialty gasket systems can be used when installing, repairing, maintaining, and sealing of vulnerable aircraft assemblies. Av-DEC conductive specialty gaskets are polyurethane-based and integrate an aluminum mesh. They are also constructed to meet the airworthiness standards of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Av-DEC gasket are durable, easy to use, and create an optimal environmental seal when applied. Customers can apply polyurethane conductive specialty gasket systems for the following purposes:

  • To protect aviation components from the effects of direct chemical and electrochemical attacks.
    • To shield components from moisture and humidity which accelerate corrosion.
    • To elongate the lifespan of aviation components that are constantly used in extreme conditions.
    • To quickly excellent repairs on defective sealing surfaces and components which saves cost and eliminates downtime.

    High-Performance Gasket Systems for Long-Term Application

    Av-DEC HI-TAK high-performance gasket systems are strategically designed to serve as corrosion inhibitors and environmental seals. These gaskets allow for a durable seal that incorporates the flexibility, resistance, and durability of polyurethane. The gasket system can withstand temperature excursions as high as 135°C (275°F). Av-DEC die-cut gaskets integrate these protective features as a sealant. This means when applied, components will be protected from:

    • Gaseous and liquid substances. This ensures components do not absorb these corrosive agents.
    • Excessive Vibrations. This protects assemblies from fatigue which increases the lifespan of the structure.
    • Thermal Expansion. This ensures temperature fluctuations do not lead to expansion of the applied gasket system.
    • Inadequate Sealing. Die-cut Av-DEC polyurethane gasket systems provide maximum surface bonding which eliminates corrosion.

    Pre-Cured Polyurethane Gaskets for Quick Installation and Easy Removal

    Av-DEC conductive specialty gasket systems are pre-cured to speed up their application. As a service bureau or repair specialist, the "Apply and Fly™" maxim attached to these gaskets will serve perfectly. The pre-cured feature of Av-DEC gasket systems ensures that you can quickly "Apply and Fly" them on antennas, sensors, and other components. The benefits to gain from its pre-cured design include:

    • Eco-friendly Materials. The environment-friendly nature of this system eliminates concerns regarding hazardous compounds which can harm the environment and cause corrosion.
    • Eliminates Cure Time. It eliminates the use of polysulfide and the extensive cure times associated with cure-in-place sealants, resulting in speedy application.
    • Supports Removal. Pre-cured gaskets simplify the removal process and leave no residues behind that could affect paint adhesion.
    • Compatible Application. Av-DEC gasket systems can be applied on metal surfaces, rigid plastics, and painted surfaces without negatively affecting performance.

    Enhanced Resistance to Environmental Factors

    HI-TAK polyurethane conductive specialty gaskets serve as the ultimate protection against the environment and by-products of a functional aircraft. When applied, the gasket protects antennas, panels, sensors, and sensitive aviation components from the environment they operate in. Av-DEC gaskets protect aircraft structures, assemblies, and systems from:

    • Humidity and Moisture. It protects components from, humidity, and the resulting moisture which leads to corrosion.
