Formed-in-place foam gasket technology (FIPG and FIPFG) forms superior, cut resistant gaskets for electrical enclosures, industrial lighting, and other applications in grooved parts. It is ideally suited for making large or irregular shaped gaskets.

As a full-service custom molder, Falcon Plastics is one of only a few molders that offer customers this foam-in-place technology.

There are no tooling expenses with this process, and it offers flexible adjustment to changing components. That makes it extremely cost effective in labor intensive and high-production operations.

This technology is typically used to replace hand-installed, self-adhesive, or clip-on gasketing on parts and enclosures needing to be water or dust tight.
