New ZaGO line protects switches
Gulf Industry  (7/1/09)

ZaGO Manufacturing Company has introduced a new line of silicone rubber switch boots for toggle switches, push button switches and rotary switches aimed at ensuring long-lasting operation of the equipment for which they are used.

The new product enables switches to be sealed properly

The new product enables switches to be sealed properly so that they are not left vulnerable to corrosive environments, the company said.

“Our fasteners are found in the most innovative products on the market and guarantee high performance in even the most challenging environments. Our new switch boot seals will protect against switch failure and eliminate the need for switch replacements,” said Harvey Rottenstrich, president of ZaGO, a leading supplier of seal screws for more than 15 years.

To meet the mounting challenges of climate change, the need for alternative energy solutions has never been more in demand and as a result, engineers and designers are seeking specialised components to create new products and equipment that is more energy efficient and more dependable than ever before.

“ZaGO’s new switch seal boots are waterproof, not just water resistant, and are available for all types of electrical controls. The new switch boots can handle tough applications for use in marine equipment, off-road vehicles, aircraft, welding equipment, medical equipment, and much more,” it said.

The boots are moulded on a brass hex nut with silicone rubber which conforms to military specifications. No special handling is required; they install easily and fit over most standard switches. All boots are crafted from a single-piece design and are DFAR and ROHS compliant. Small and light weight, they will operate in temperature ranges from -160 degrees F to 500 degrees F.

Emerging technology sectors that will benefit from ZaGO’s rubber boot seals include aerospace, automotive, computer and electronic equipment, medical equipment, and marine. They have applications in “green” products such as solar panels, wind turbines, and electric cars. These products store electric energy in the form of battery electric cells, which can leak chemical solutions if not sealed properly.

The Newark, NJ-based company specializes in producing sealing fasteners and boots. Additional products include seal nuts, panel bushing seal washers, seal rivets, seal Acorn nuts, and more.
