Av-DEC's® pre-cured polyurethane antenna gasket has an aluminum carrier die cut to fit the antenna. It is also designed for use as an environmental sealant. The flexible nature of this system provides for easy access for inspection or repair long after the original application. The system demonstrates excellent cohesion after installation, and provides a high degree of environmental protection, while still allowing for easy removal and antenna bonding. Currently, Av-DEC® produces over 1000 different antenna gasket footprints.
