Gel Targets Large-Scale LED Applications

March 3, 2009 8:02 am | Comments

Acting as an alternative to hermetically-sealed housings, HumiSeal’s UV40 gel has been formulated for large-scale LED applications, such as LED displays often found above stadiums during sporting events. The adhesive withstands UV exposure, lightning strikes, and moisture ingress from rain. The gel is applied in conjunction with standard UV40 product around sensitive areas of the circuit board to increase the thickness of covering to
