W. L. Gore & Associates’ VE80205 adhesive vents are specifically engineered for small enclosures, such as displays for heavy duty equipment. According to the company:
- With the smallest footprint in the GORE® protective vent line, this vent improves the integrity, reliability and safety of electronic components in harsh weather by equalizing pressure and reducing condensation.
- The breathable membrane that is incorporated into the vent reduces condensation by allowing moisture vapor to escape from the enclosure, while protecting the electronics from liquids and particulates.
- Available in standard packaging of five parts across a 41-millimeter wide carrier, the 2- by 5-millimeter vent has a typical airflow of 103.62 ml/min/cm2 and is constructed with a robust adhesive that withstands challenging environments and adheres to different product surfaces.
- The vent can be installed manually or with an automated process on either the internal or external wall of the enclosure without compromising its performance.
