POREX Virtek™ Protection Vents for electronics housings and enclosure boxes are used in electronic devices that have a physical housing to protect delicate components from rough use and environmental conditions. Porex protection vents allow rapid pressure equalization and minimize condensation while keeping dust, dirt, and moisture out. Another excellent option is our standard or custom solutions utilizing microporous high-temperature polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane, which is UL 94 V-0 (0.1mm) and 5VA (0.75mm) flame rated, UL 746C f1 rated, IP ratings up to IP67, and can be tested to meet NEMA or other standards.
