Enhance environmental protection of mobile electronics

Mobile electronics manufacturers know the importance of keeping their electronics running smoothly. To ensure your customers stay connected with their mobile devices, our high-performance POREX® Virtek™ IP rated PTFE vents are designed to provide pressure equalization, plus protection from dust, water, sweat and other contaminants.

Specifically designed for mobile devices, our vents:

  • Reduce pressure buildup–Allow heat to escape electronic enclosures, protecting enclosure seals from premature failure.
  • Protect from contaminants–Repels water, dust, sweat, oils and other liquids from entering the device.
  • Assemble easily–The strong POREX Virtek™ sintered structure allows handling and welding without the cumbersome assembly instructions and process typical of common expanded PTFE.
