DIRAK’s EPDM gaskets meet UL50E requirements for periodic compression and recompression in electrical enclosures

Gaskets can be used whenever a seal is needed between 2 panels of an enclosure assembly to protect the interior components from damage.

DIRAK’s EPDM gaskets will eliminate rattle caused by vibration, compensate for door and frame irregularities, and provide environmental sealing. DIRAK’s EPDM gaskets are now certified to be suitable for use in UL50E applications for all enclosure types, except oil immersion for enclosure types 12, 12K or 13. DIRAK offers an additional range of NBR gaskets for these applications.
