Multi-seals' new one-part epoxy resin preforms are made for high-volume sealing applications. At room temperature, they are stored in solid form, and melt and cure when heated to seal off components from dust, moisture, oil, flux, solvents, conformal coatings or other contaminants. The company ensures uniform, high-quality results with close tolerances on preform configurations, consistent resin/catalyst premix ratios, and consistent viscosity from start to finish of each batch. Workers can dispense them as fast as 200-600 parts per minute with little or no training, and uniform results are easy, even without extensive operator experience. Available in a range of shapes, sizes and materials, the preforms eliminate pot-life concerns and cleanup procedures.
