The gasket is one of the most common sealing solutions in the e-powertrain, and the housing gasket is one of the most important. It has a range of purposes, from sealing the transmission to prevent the release of oil to separating sections of the upper and lower housing of the invertor to prevent contamination from external particles or liquids. Housing gaskets ensure the components continue to deliver the optimum amount of cooling and power to the vehicle.
Produced to a customer’s exact specifications, Datwyler’s range of housing gaskets include customized full-rubber gaskets, LSR 2K gaskets, and edge-bonded gaskets.
Edge-bonding involves bonding an elastomer seal to an aluminium or steel carrier, forming a robust and resilient part that offers a longer lifetime than traditional rubber gaskets.
Edge-bonded gaskets also offer an ideal solution for a compact sealing interface, where a recess for a press-in-place gasket is not possible.
