Aerospace Sealing Product Range
Elevating Aviation Standards
Our O-rings excel in aircraft functions, delivering Six Sigma quality and exceptional resistance to temperature and chemicals. Available in AS568, BS1806, and metric sizes, our exclusive elastomer formulations promise versatility across diverse applications, meeting industry demands with unparalleled performance.
Our plate seals provide cost-effective versatility with specialized carrier and sealing materials, guaranteeing resilience in engine, fuel, and hydraulic systems against extreme temperatures and diverse media. Innovative designs streamline assembly, reduce costs, and offer an alternative sealing approach, optimizing efficiency.
Enhancing Airframe Integrity
Our innovative designs and materials provide comprehensive airframe sealing, ensuring coverage for cabin pressure zones such as doors, windows, hatches, and high-performance seals on flight control surfaces. With proprietary low-friction, abrasion-resistant, and low-density materials, we enhance our customers' efficiency and reliability goals, contributing actively to their objectives.
Resilience in Extreme Conditions
Our fire-resistant seals, crafted from proprietary elastomers and fabrics, endure 2,000°F / 1,100°C fires for 15 minutes according to AC 20-135 / ISO 2685 standards. With or without fabric reinforcement, our expertise ensures customers achieve test success on the first attempt, bolstering their trust in our capabilities amid extreme conditions.
Safeguarding Engine Components
Our proprietary materials provide robust protection for engine and nacelle components, shielding against extreme heat and fire. These thermal barriers seamlessly integrate with the substrate or function as blankets, utilizing elastomer, plastic, and/or composite constructions. Lightweight and cost-effective, they offer efficient customer safeguarding solutions.
Flexible Fluid Transfer Solutions
Our elastomeric ducts, offering flexibility and lightweight construction, facilitate smooth liquid or gas transfer between rigid interfaces. Engineered for extensive movements and tolerances, they exhibit fatigue resistance. Utilizing proprietary materials, these ducts guarantee prolonged durability in extreme conditions and aggressive environments, with the option for added fire protection.
Tailored Protection Solutions
Our bespoke grommet designs guarantee exceptional protection for pass-through assemblies, securing wires, tubes, ignitors, connectors, and compressor vanes. These designs offer comprehensive defense against electrical, chafing, thermal, impact, and vibration risks. Moreover, they ensure effective gas/fluid sealing and, when necessary, fireproof capabilities, addressing diverse application requirements.
Strengthening Sealing Reliability
Our PTFE back-up rings elevate the sealing performance of O-rings and elastomer seals by averting extrusion. Available as solid, scarf cut, or spiral rings, these retainers harness our exclusive Quantum® materials, meeting AMS-3678 standards. They significantly extend seal lifespan, particularly in high-pressure and extreme temperature environments, ensuring heightened reliability.
Adaptable Sealing Solutions
Our silicone tape forms an airtight, watertight seal around electrical connections, bonding permanently within 24 hours. With no-adhesive technology, it allows easy, clean re-entry without substrate bonding. Additionally, it's available with fabric reinforcement, enhancing tear resistance and flame retardancy, ideal for applications requiring durability, such as hot air ducting.
