Industrial Molded Grommets
Industrial molded grommets are small rubber components used to protect wiring and cables from fraying or being cut when passed through a pre-drilled hole. Some grommets are also designed to provide vibration control in motor and machine assembly applications.
Molded grommets perform well in indoor or outdoor applications because they can withstand a wide temperature range and retain their shape after being distorted. Additional advantages of rubber grommets include:
- Corrosion resistant
- High-heat resistant
- Weather resistant
- Easy installation
Common Applications for Industrial Molded Grommets
While most molded grommets are circular, there are also hinge-shaped, oval-shaped, and pushbutton grommets used for sealing, protection, and vibration control. Some of the typical uses for rubber grommets include:
- Installing rubber molded grommets in thru-holes and machine holes to protect wires and cables from sharp metal edges.
- Creating a dust barrier and weather-tight seal by inserting molded grommets in holed used to pass tubes, wires or cabling through walls and cabinets.
- Attaching rubber grommets to brackets and bolts for vibration control in applications involving motors or machinery.
