Rubbertech make rubber seals in many different materials and choosing the correct material is extremely important.
This of course depends on the environment and end use of the assembly and the level of seal that is specified by our customer.
Although we are primarily a silicone moulding company we do mould rubber seals in other materials if the product demands, such as Neoprene, Nitrile, EPDM, Fluorosilicone and TPE materials.
Customised Rubber Applications
The materials we use mean we can offer rubber seals with specific properties, such as:
- Food Safe approved
- Flame Retardant materials approved to UL standards
- Medical class approved
- Anti-bacterial additive
- High and Low temperature ranges
- Steam Sterilization Resistant
- RF screening grades
- ATEX approved
- Pantone and RAL colour matched
If a rubber seal is required as an assembly to metal or specific plastics including PTFE then we can over mould these two materials to form a better seal and reduce assembly costs for our customers.
Rubbertech can also supply rubber seals produced by extrusion methods; these are either supplied in lengths to specific cross section or can be joined after extrusion to form a complete unbroken seal.
These methods require tooling which can range from low cost for punch or extrusion tools to higher costing compression and injection tools. The best method is ultimately decided by the design of the part and the estimated quantities required.
Rubbertech have excellent relationships with material suppliers and toolmakers, this enables us to offer prompt service, value and flexibility regardless of how large or small the enquiry may be.
