Insul-Fab is pleased to have been selected by a major aerospace OEM to assist with material selection and design implementation for a moisture control application.
As condensation in an aircraft freezes at altitude and then melts upon the aircraft’s descent into warmer temperatures, overhead moisture migrates into passenger cabin areas, a phenomenon often referred to as “rain on the plane.”
Insul-Fab assisted a major customer in analyzing several needle-punched, nonwoven felt materials that wick moisture away from entry points in the cabin. The end result was a bevel-edged, die cut gasket with pressure sensitive adhesive to assist in installation. The gasket diffuses moisture across its surface, allowing evaporation without pooling or dripping in passenger areas.
Condensation is a continuing problem in an appliance, HVAC, refrigeration and a number of general industrial applications. Contact Insul-Fab to discuss not only thermal management solutions but also moisture management solutions for equipment.
