BARCLAD SEALING SCREWS TESTED TO WITHSTAND 8,000PSI

An Advanced Alternative To Screw/O-Ring Combinations.

(October 5, 2011) Wilmington, MA - Gaynor Industries is pleased to announce the successful completion of independent hydrostatic pressure testing for BarTite Sealing Screws. Testing results place BarTite Sealing Screws at or above pressure capabilities of many standard screw/o-ring combinations. According to Marc Spada, Marketing Manager, "BarTite Sealing Screws utilize a plastisol sealant that offers broad chemical resistance and rivals the performance of common rubber o-rings. BarTite Sealing Screws are the preferred alternative to static rubber seals."

The product evaluations were conducted at Intertek's Cortland Safety Facility in Cortland, NY. The hydrostatic pressure evaluations consisted of securing the BarTite sealing screw at one end of a hollow steel fixture at the suggested torque settings. Internal hydrostatic pressure was applied within the fixture and held at predefined intervals for 5 minutes or until product failure.

Designed to seal in/out moisture, vapors, liquids, chemicals, pressurized air, and other contaminants, the screws employ a proprietary, stable and non-aging pvc plastisol sealant that is resistant to a wide range of liquids including petrochemicals, water, acids, solvents, hydrocarbons, and salt sprays. The sealant is applied within a precision groove under the fastener head.

A 360° impervious seal is achieved by applying torque, which forces the plastisol sealant to flow out in every direction as well as down into the threads. The sealant will fill all potential leak paths creating a truly dynamic seal unlike any other. BarTite Sealing Screws are suitable for use in electrical enclosures, electronics, hydraulics, automotive technologies, communication equipment, and numerous other industrial and commercial applications where sealing is required.

Gaynor Industries provides specialized sealing washers, nuts and screws to a diverse range of manufacturers across a variety of industries. Manufactured in Wilmington, Massachusetts, the BarTite, BarClad, and BarPad series of sealing fasteners offer superior performance and advanced designs to deliver sealing solutions that will stand the test of time.

BARCLAD SEALING WASHER TESTED TO HIGHER PRESSURE RATINGS

Gaynor Industries is pleased to announce the successful completion of independent hydrostatic pressure testing for BarClad Sealing Washers.

(July 26, 2010) Wilmington, MA - Gaynor Industries is pleased to announce the successful completion of independent hydrostatic pressure testing for BarClad Sealing Washers. The results of the testing exceeded all expectations and have significantly upgraded the washer psi ratings.

The product evaluations, conducted at Intertek's Cortland Safety Facility in Cortland, NY, were performed on all current sizes of BarClad 300 Series Stainless Steel Sealing Washers with Neoprene sealant. The hydrostatic pressure evaluations consisted of securing the BarClad sealing washer at one end of a hollow metal tube with a standard fastener to the suggested torque setting. Hydrostatic pressure was applied through the other end of the hollow tube up to a maximum 10,000psi or until product failure.

BarClad Sealing Washers were previously rated to withstand up to 6,000psi hydrostatic pressure based on internal testing. Independent Laboratory Testing was able to upgrade the psi rating through the use of new equipment with higher psi capabilities while also validating prior results. BarClad Sealing Washers are designed to seal in/out moisture, vapors, liquids, chemicals, and pressurized air and are used in a variety of applications.

Gaynor Industries was founded in 1954 to provide specialized sealing washers, nuts and screws to a diverse range of manufacturers across a variety of industries. Manufactured in Wilmington, Massachusetts, the BarTite, BarClad, and BarPad series of sealing fasteners offer superior performance and advanced designs to deliver sealing solutions that will stand the test of time.

GAYNOR INDUSTRIES ACQUIRES NEMA 250 TYPE 6P RATING

BarTite and BarClad Sealing Washers Achieve NEMA 250 Type 6P Rating for electrical enclosure ingress & corrosion protection.

(June 14, 2010) Wilmington, MA - Gaynor Industries, a specialty sealing fastener manufacturer, announced today that an independent testing laboratory has successfully completed NEMA ingress protection and corrosion evaluations for BarTite and BarClad sealing washers and issued a NEMA 250 Type 6 rating for both product lines.

The product evaluations, conducted at Intertek's Cortland Safety Facility in Cortland, NY, were performed on all current sizes of BarTite Sealing Washers and BarClad Neoprene Sealing Washers. Marc Spada, Director of Sales & Marketing, states "We are excited to confirm product performance through independent testing. This is an important performance rating to achieve for electrical enclosure fasteners and a baseline for product performance in the engineering world". The NEMA 250 Type 6 rating allows engineers to specify BarTite and BarClad fasteners knowing that their performance is guaranteed to meet NEMA standards.

NEMA 250 Type 6 enclosures are constructed for either indoor or outdoor use to provide a degree of protection to personnel against access to hazardous parts; to provide a degree of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against ingress of solid foreign objects (falling dirt); to provide a degree of protection with respect to harmful effects on the equipment due to the ingress of water (hose directed water and the entry of water during occasional temporary submersion at a limited depth); and that will be undamaged by the external formation of ice on the enclosure. This NEMA rating meets and exceeds the IEC requirements for protection against the ingress of water.1
