      Hello,
      I am a future mechanical engineer, and In my Graduation project I should make a box composed of two parts: a housing and a cover between them I should make a removeble seal, this box should have an ingress protection IP69k.
      :eek:
      Please, do you have any idea about Seals that can ensure this requirement, their form, their material and their compression ratio.

      Please, it's the most important requirement that I should make.
      ;)

      Hello,

      If someone have any document or site (même en français) that explane the relation between seals and the ingress protection. It's urgent please.

      Thank you.

      Thank you very much Tonycro,
      If some one need the standard of the ingress protection, he can download it from here "http://www.evs.ee/preview/iso-20653-2006-en.pdf"
      Do you think that the 'O' ring can ensure the IP69k, because I should argue my choice, and I dont find any document that make relation between Seals and the IP.

      Thank you.

      Ive got through IP6x (dust ingress) no problem in the past with simple orings used correctly. IPx9 (water ingress) might be difficult. I believe there's no official test spec because it's for submersibles and I think you're somehow supposed to define the spec yourself (not sure how that works exactly). I've had a quite a bit of aggro getting enclosures through IPx8 in the past (under 1m of water) so IPx9 might be tricky.

      Thank you GarethW,
      In fact, this IP is a customer recuirement, he want to make a box containing a pcb, a housing and a cover and it shoudl ensure the IP69k. I suppose that they use this in submarines.
      My choice should be argued[FONT=arial, sans-serif].
      Thank you for your cooperation.

      Sword, I think you need to establish what depth you need to go so you can design something suitable.

      Do you know where the product will be used and what it actually is?

      Actually there is no Product, I should make the mechanical part of the project. this product is an electronic device that will be used in submarins and they dont gave me more information because it's confidential.

      Are there cables from the box that need sealing?
      does the box need a certain minimum strength?
