Remetschwil, Switzerland — avisec, a weatherised remote-control camera maker, is using Baydur 66 FR-1, a rigid polyurethane integral skin foam system from Covestro to build cameras which can withstand harsh weather conditions.
Nearby Gontenschwil, Switzerland-based Emaform produces the two, complex housing components for avisec. Once assembled the casings are waterproof to a depth of 30 cm for 24 hours.
The polyurethane system was chosen for the housing because meets surface requirements, has good physical properties and functionality, said Covestro.
The firm added that some inserts are directly embedded in the foam, glass components are fixed with adhesive and add-on parts are attached with screws. The black lower section of the housing is integrally colored; the upper section features a two-component coating and can be imprinted, if desired.
