More safety on the road

Pressure Compensation Seals from Schreiner ProTech Protect Automotive Lighting Systems

The diversity of emerging lighting technologies such as adaptive lighting systems, laser light and Matrix LED results in a growing demand for reliable and customized venting elements for vehicles. Dependable and durable lighting at night or in difficult weather conditions is a basic prerequisite for safe driving. Pressure compensation seals (PCS) from Schreiner ProTech protect automotive lighting systems against dirt and the elements. By providing reliable pressure compensation, reducing condensation and supporting the durability, quality and luminous intensity of headlights, they help ensure traffic safety.

Compared with threaded or injection-molded versions, venting solutions in the form of self-adhesive membranes are extremely lightweight and space-saving components. They provide effective protection against fine dust, dirt or external water ingress caused by wet weather conditions, water splash or car washes, as well as oleophobic protection against service fluids and cleaning agents. Due to the vapor impermeability of the membrane, condensation in the housing is minimal.

Schreiner ProTech draws on an extensive membrane portfolio and offers the smallest self-adhesive membrane solutions on the market, which puts the business unit in a perfect position to support the mega trends of “miniaturization” and “lightweight design.”  Due to their long-standing experience in adhesives processing and membrane technology, the experts from Schreiner ProTech set new standards in the area of self-adhesive membrane elements. Using validated processes and tests according to IATF 16949, they are an ideal partner in the field of automotive lighting.

The Right System for any Process

As an expert in total solutions Schreiner ProTech offers customized dispensing and application devices tailored to the customer’s specific assembly process.

Additional inspection and testing systems ensure the impeccable performance of the products. Customers have a wide range of choices: from functional tests like airflow measurements and adhesive testing to system solutions such as centering and positioning units.
