RCS Enterprises is a leading provider of LED gaskets and to the outdoor LED lighting& Fixtures industry. LED gaskets and pads provide long term weather protection and reduce heat build-up, extending the life and performance of LED lighting and solid state lighting.
RCS Enterprises manufactures custom LED gaskets and thermal interface pads for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and retrofitters of:
• LED roadway lighting.
• LED street light fixtures.
• Outdoor LED lighting.
In today’s elastomer market, the range of rubbers available to lighting engineers, designers and buyers are extensive. So much so, that when analyzing the list of rubber properties, it is very easy to get lost in a maze of grades, forms, specifications, thicknesses and hardnesss.
Failure to choose the correct sealing material often leads to failure in application. This is commonly caused by water, moisture or dust ingress within electrical enclosures causing downtime and repair costs. Therefore it is vital to analyze and choose the correct materials to ensure failure is prevented.
• Smooth Skin - better sealing performance.
• Low smoke/toxicity grades.
• Closed Cell Sponge - Low water and dust ingress.
• Low Compression Set and Deflection.
• Excellent Tear Resistance.
• Light Weight.
• Flexible - Easily Applied.
• Vibration Dampening.
• Extreme Temperature Range: +230°C to -60°C .
• Weather Resistant - UV, Ozone, Frost, Rain - ideal for outdoor LED applications.
• Low out-gassing.
• IP65 and IP66 achieved (subject to design of components).
Applying a breathable, water-resistant coating to a porous surface usually involves silicon-based materials. The most common varieties include siloxane, silane, and silicone rubber, which are appealing due to their effectiveness in penetrating substrates without compromising porousness. In addition to being silicon-based, these materials share a number of other characteristics, including a high level of breathability and the capacity for being applied to most products without noticeably altering their appearance. But despite their similarities, siloxane, silane, and silicone rubber products each have their own distinct attributes that affect how they are manufactured and used.
Benefits of rubber components for Light and Fixtures with RCS Enterprises:
Increased Resistance: Due to the production and refinement processes required to make silicone rubber, it is essentially an inorganic material. This makes it more resistant than silane and siloxane are to acid rain, ultraviolet light, sodium, and corrosive airborne particles.
Elasticity: Even after vulcanization, silicone rubber retains much of its original flexibility, enabling it to repair minor cracks or fractures in a substrate when applied as a waterproofing material.
Longevity: It's broader range of resistances allows silicone rubber to maintain a waterproof seal for longer periods than its silane and siloxane counterparts.
