Viton is a synthetic rubber and fluoropolymer elastomer

Viton is a brand of FKM, a synthetic rubber and fluoropolymer elastomer commonly used in seals, chemical-resistant gloves, and other molded or extruded goods. Compared to most other elastomers, Viton is better able to withstand high temperatures, while simultaneously retaining its good mechanical properties. Compounds of Viton remain substantially elastic when exposed to laboratory [...]

New video – NorMec Standard Press 110-00-150

Whats the new video of our Standard Press 110-00-150. We have perfected our Standard Press over the last 30 years. The machine has been developed to hot vulcanize all types of rubber, for example, EPDM, NBR, SBR CR, NR and without retooling the machine can also be used to splice silicone profiles. Contact Us

O-Ring

An O-Ring, also known as packing or a toric joint, is a mechanical gasket in the shape of a torus; it is a loop of elastomer with a round cross-section, designed to be a seated in a groove and compressed during assembly between two or more parts, creating a seal at the interface. Their [...]

Inflatable seal

An inflatable seal is a type of rubber seal which inflates (rather than compresses) to create an air or watertight barrier. When compared to elastomeric compression seals, Inflatable rubber seals are more forgiving of irregular or misaligned surfaces, which boosts sealing integrity. They are also easier to use because they require less force to [...]

Edge trimmed profile

Edge trim is used to protect personnel, vehicles, machinery, and equipment. Applications include vehicle doors, truck cabs, machine guards, and equipment cabinets. To help the rubber seal absorb impact, edge trim can contain either wire cores or segmented steel cores. Edge trim can be made of EPDM, a synthetic rubber that resists moisture and [...]

Rubber profile extrusion

Rubber extrusions are parts that are run through an extruder or extrusion machine and forced through a die to manufacture the necessary cross-section (or extruded rubber shape), such as squares, cord shapes, and hollow sections for added compression for sealing. The brand of choice for the marine, automotive, industrial, and manufacturing industries, extruded rubber [...]

Dual durometer rubber profiles

Dual durometer rubber profiles are extrusions with different areas of hardness. Typically, the harder rubber is used for attachment while the softer rubber is used for sealing. By joining two materials of different physical properties, structural integrity and flexible function can be combined into one part. For example, when a rubber gasket must be [...]

Chloroprene Rubber (CR)

Chloroprene Rubber (CR) is a synthetic rubber that is also known by the trade name Neoprene. CR has a good balance of properties, including good chemical stability and usefulness over a wide temperature range. It is mostly applied to bond structures or different materials. To improve the performance, oil-soluble phenolic resin is added to [...]
