We extrude custom-shaped profiles and tubing in a variety of hardnesses (40D – 80D) and colors in the following materials:
- Nitrile (Buna N) (See also Mixing)
- SBR (FDA approved)
MIL-R Specs 6855, 900, 3065
These can be run in commercial grades as well as premium grades. Our sizes are limited only to 3/16″ dia. minimum to 4-1/2″ dia. maximum. We have 7 extruders of various sizes.
We do not produce sheeting.
Tubing that must retain a round shape can be formed on “mandrels” or “poles.”
We use a steam curing process in either 20′ maximum straight lengths or up to 250′ continuous coils (depending upon the size of part) and can be spooled on request.
We provide a variety of cutting methods. They are:
- Lathe Cut – (as thin as .062″ or as thick as 19″) ID must be at least 1″ for lathe cut.
- Throp Cut – Washers can be cut at a high rate of speed to thicknesses as low as .125″.
- Guillotine Cut – For larger lengths and cross sections.
Custom Compound Mixing:
We currently custom mix our own compounds. This helps reduce lead times and helps us remain cost effective. We are also in process of initiating some changes that will greatly enhance our Technical Support. The most common materials are listed above.
The most common colors are:
White, Black, Off-White, Blue, Gray, Red, Tan, Yellow & Safety Yellow,
We also can run:
Green, Purple, Orange,
We run Nitrile Rubber in Black only.
Pail and Drum Gaskets/Splicing:
We produce a variety of tubular gasket sizes, colors, lengths and materials. We do not splice EPDM or Nitrile. We can splice some profiles such as “u” channels, solid cord, etc. In addition we can splice tubes into “Endless Gaskets” for all your Pail & Drum gasket needs.
