Fisher & Paykel Appliances are a globally recognised whiteware and appliance manufacturing company based in East Tamaki. As a premium brand, FPA’s point of difference lies in its ability to harness technological innovation and creative design.
Nexus Performance Foams worked with FPA in developing a new gasket for the glass digital display on their new range of ovens. This gasket was not only intended to seal and mount the glass without the need for mechanical fasteners, but further needed to serve as a vibration or impact absorber and be highly heat resistant.
Not only did Nexus Performance Foams identify appropriate materials for testing throughout the R+D process, but further used clever use of repositioning materials to allow for easier and faster installation of the gasket during the oven manufacture process.
