Industry Challenges

Various challenges in the electronics industry can be overcome with proper sealing solutions. For example, outdoor lighting used in large entertainment venues requires adequate sealing to protect against dirt, dust, temperature, pressure, moisture, and other environmental hazards.

Temperature changes are one of the biggest threats to the longevity of outdoor lighting and other electronic systems. Rapid temperature changes from morning to night or sudden onsets of inclement weather can negatively affect the internal pressure of electrical components. Inadequate pressure equalization can result in internal components having a lower pressure than that of the surrounding environment, creating a vacuum that pulls in dirt, dust, and moisture. Over time, these invasive contaminants can cause premature failure of outdoor lighting and other critical electronic systems. Quality sealing products protect electronic systems to ensure their integrity and longevity.
