Gasket design for small devices

Gasket design for small devices

Gasket design for small devices


My name is Diana, I'm from México. At work, me and some other people are developing a small device taht must be waterproof, but still be reparable. So we are thinking in sealing it with a gasket.

We need to keep the device as small as possible. At start we were told to use a 1.2 mm round extrusion of EPDM put into a 1.2 wide x 1 mm deep channel and a 1 mm wide x 1 mm tall wall to press it. But this lacks of any theorical base. Do you know about some book for small gaskets design that we could use?

Thanks a lot!

The Parker o-ring handbook is good. Search using those words and you'll find it.
