Share Article

Simply because a switch is labeled “sealed” it doesn’t mean it is sealed sufficiently to actually protect the switch where it needs protection most.

Recently, a ZaGO customer prominent in the manufacture of navigation instruments complained to ZaGO that although the pushbutton switch it uses to operate its marine navigation system is sealed to IP-67, the switch was malfunctioning because it was continually getting gummed up with salt deposits. ZaGO immediately sized up the situation, offering the ideal sealing solution with a custom pushbutton boot. What the customer recognized was that simply because a switch is labeled “sealed” it doesn’t mean it is sealed sufficiently to actually protect the switch where it needs protection most. What ZaGO supplied was a unique sealing solution.

ZaGO specializes in designing economical, environmentally responsible sealing solutions that will ensure the long lasting and dependable operation of switches. ZaGO’s technical group is always available to work alongside its customers’ engineers to create a unique design to fit their specifications and ensure the highest quality product.

Today major manufacturers of switches and circuit breakers are increasingly choosing ZaGO’s waterproof rubber boots not just for their high quality and cost competitiveness, but also because ZaGO’s switch covers have an excellent “feel” upon actuation, are durable and dependable, and can be ordered in a wide variety of colors.

ZaGO Manufacturing Company has been has been producing sealing products for nearly twenty years in Newark, New Jersey.
