We have published a new success story!  In this story, the customer required a static seal for a navigation module that would beInfotainment Nav Silicone Gasket.png contained and used on the exterior of a recreational vehicle.  The exterior navigation/infotainment module would be exposed to outdoor elements including extreme temperature swings, rain, wind and dust.  The gasket was required to perform as designed for the life expectancy of the class A RV.  This can be more than 10 years!  

Marian worked with their design team to provide a superior gasket solution made with Rogers BISCO® HT-800 Closed Cell Silicone Foam.  Marian has been a Preferred Converter with the material supplier, Rogers Corporation, for more than 40 years.  Together, Marian and Rogers recommended BISCO® HT-800 Silicone Foam, understanding that the material could withstand extreme temperatures and provide a reliable long-term seal.  Marian developed an automated die-cutting process that produced these intricate parts with very tight tolerance. 

Ultimately, Marian's customer has confidence that their customer and the users of this infotainment device will remain happy with their product during many years of use.
