  • Allows easy replacement of worn gaskets on desiccator cabinets
  • Bond strength increases with time and temperature
  • Rugged material ensures long service life

Constant exposure to a nitrogen environment eventually dries out door gasketing, causing it to lose its elasticity and hence its sealing capability. But dried-out gaskets don't have to mean an obsolete desiccator.

When you notice that gaskets have begun to crack or stiffen, simply peel them off (you may need to scrape portions off with a razor blade), and then replace them. This closed-cell PVC foam extrusion will stand up to years of nitrogen exposure, and its self-adhesive, noncontaminating backing is specially designed for use with acrylic.

One-Piece "e"-Profile Elastomer Gaskets

All Terra Universal enclosures with stainless steel door frames now feature these innovative nonoutgassing gaskets. These gaskets are permanently installed on the door.

Because they are mechanically attached to the door, they require no adhesives, and they won't slip or migrate over time. They are made of extruded Santoprene®, a thermoplastic rubber which produces no detectable volatile materials over one part per million in high-temperature gas chromatography and mass spectrometry testing.
