CODE RED™ is an innovative sealing encapsulant and application process — invented by Glenair — that provides durable hermetic sealing in a lightweight aluminium package. CODE RED™ allows for the use of conventional gold-plated copper alloy contacts, significantly improving electrical performance.
Hermetic connectors are a special class of sealed Mil /Aero interconnect that incorporates glass-to-metal or other highly engineered sealing technology. Hermetic seal connectors are specified for applications as divergent as submarines and orbiting satellites. They are deployed to resist moisture ingress in underground applications and to withstand pressure differentials in vacuum chambers, laboratory equipment and commercial and military aircraft.

Glenair excels in the rapid prototyping and development of custom hermetic connectors from initial concept to finished parts, our factory is fully self-sufficient and can produce highly reliable, rugged interconnects machined from stainless steel, Inconel®, or kovar®. Our expertise extends to the design of high-density interconnects to resolve gas, moisture, and particle ingress problems.
The Series 23 SuperNine® advanced performance MIL-DTL-38999 connector series rolls up many of the technology advances Glenair has pioneered in our environmental, hermetic, and filter connectors into a comprehensive high-performance MILDTL-38999 Series III solution.
Glenair's history of interconnect innovation for manned space applications began with our design and fabrication role in the realization of the golden umbilical life-support cable used by Commander Ed White in the first American Gemini Program space walk in 1965.
