We offer a wide range of vent materials and manufacturing capabilities to produce protective vents quickly and accurately – regardless of part size, design complexity, or run quantity. With precision die cutting, we can also manufacture vents with intricate cross-sections.
Interstate Specialty Products die cuts protective vents for medtech, electronics, and industrial applications. For over 60 years, our Made in the USA manufacturing company has been die cutting rubber and plastic components at our custom fabrication facility in Sutton, Massachusetts.
Die cut vents are made of porous PTFE, such as Gore, and Porex® membranes. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is used in many venting applications because it offers chemical compatibility and support for a wide temperature range.
Venting supports design flexibility, system reliability, pressure equalization, and temperature stabilization. Depending on your application, Interstate Specialty Products can supply vents that help to protect sensing surfaces, prevent short circuits, and control air/gas exchanges.
Applications for Protective Vents
Protective vent supports the performance of outdoor electronics by equalizing pressure, reducing condensation, and blocking water and contaminants. Vents are also used in packaging design for similar reasons.
Automotive applications for protective vents:
- ABS brakes
- Electric motors
- Power steering systems.
Medtech applications for protective vents:
- Drainage bags
- Suction canisters
- Medical and surgical instruments
Interstate Specialty Products also custom manufactures electronic vents for cabinet housings, power supplies, and memory storage devices.
