Rubber molded gaskets fill the gap between two joining surfaces to prevent leakage and pressure loss while under compression. The seal created by industrial molded gaskets also provides vibration dampening in some mechanical applications. Gaskets come in a wide variety of shapes and materials, though rubber is preferred because it is impermeable to gases and provides the best resistance to acids, chemicals, and other corrosive substances.
Examples of industries that use industrial molded rubber gaskets include:
- General Industrial & Manufacturing
Benefits of Custom vs. Pre-Made Industrial Molded Gaskets
Custom rubber molded gaskets provide an advantage over pre-made options because they are manufactured to your exact specifications for compression set, chemical resistance, and flexibility. In some cases, custom rubber molded gaskets can also save you money, especially if you need large quantities of the same design.
Choosing custom industrial molded gaskets is an ideal solution for applications with unique shape and sizing requirements or when you want more control over the quality of your products. Customization also allows you to add fabric or metal reinforcements to your rubber molded gaskets for more demanding applications.
