Gasketing and Sealing Materials

Seals and gaskets are crucial components for electronic and mechanical equipment because they provide effective barriers against the ingress of contaminants, maintaining proper fluid or gas containment, and ensuring reliable performance of equipment. In electronics, seals and gaskets protect sensitive components from moisture, dust, dirt, and electromagnetic interference. The choice of sealing and gasket materials should be based on the specific operational requirements, environmental conditions, and desired performance characteristics.

Additional Materials Include:

  • Elastomers
  • These materials offer good flexibility, resilience, and resistance to chemicals and the ability to operate in a range of temperatures.

    • Nitrile rubber (NBR)
    • NBR (natural Buna rubber)
    • Polyurethane
    • Neoprene
    • Silicone (VMQ)
    • Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM)
  • Fluoropolymers (PTFE)
  • Metal Foils
  • DuPont™ Cirlex®
  • Fluorocarbon (FKM/Viton®)
  • Composites - Kevlar®/NBR, PTFE/Filler, Metal-Clad, Conductive Elastomers, Silicone/Fiber, Foams
  • Other - alternate options that meet customer application requirements (contact us for details)
