Seal Application Use Case #201
Use Case: FST Compliant Control System Cabinet for High-Speed Rail
Client: A major OEM of Rail Car pneumatic braking systems
Solution: Seal-Fast Door Seal with Film Bonded Ends – One Piece Assembly
- Current rectangular silicone seal used a pressure sensitive adhesive tape (PSA) to fasten to the chassis but it did not bond consistently or reliably.
- It was very difficult to replace properly when damaged because sections of the material and adhesive would remain in places which made refitting slow and costly.
- Material and PSA tape was not tested and approved to meet Flame Smoke and Toxicity (FST) requirements.
- Water leaks were common at the seals terminating ends which required repair and a slow, messy adhesive application on site – making damaged sections even more difficult to replace.
- Seal-Fast™ FST Silicone edge mount bulb door seal
- Pre-joined terminating ends one-piece application
- Solved the bonding and leakage
