Vents for Mobile Electronics
Featured Product from Porex
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.
