ELBEX is proud to offer high quality, custom rubber extrusions for the manufacturing industry to help absorb movement and prevent structural damage. Our engineers will work hand in hand with you to find the right solution for your project, and choose materials that meet regulatory standards and any applicable codes.

Our rubber extrusions are most commonly used in the industrial and manufacturing industry as buffers to reduce movement between surfaces, greatly reducing the risk of structural damage. In addition, our rubber extrusions are frequently used to seat and seal fenestration systems and facades. Industrial and Manufacturing engineers must choose the right materials to ensure lasting structural integrity. Our engineers can work with you to select the right materials in regards to your specific project. Contact us today to let us know what you need for your project!

Applications in the Manufacturing Industry

Our rubber extrusions play a vital role in the performance of a wide range of industrial and manufacturing systems. Our products can be manufactured to withstand extreme environments that manufacturing and industrial environments are subject to, including direct sunlight and dramatic changes in temperature that can cause expansion and contraction. Whether you need a rubber extrusion for a specific product you’re manufacturing, or for the actual factory building itself, our rubber extrusions fit the bill.

  • Pipe ramps
  • Glazing system profiles
  • Silicone sheeting
  • Expansion joints

Extruded Rubber Expansion Joints

Expansion joints are used in a variety of applications, but are most commonly used in industrial piping systems or in situations where there’s a need to reduce movement and vibration—any time there is concern of structural damage due to the expansion or contraction of those surfaces.

Extruded rubber expansion joints from ELBEX provide superior stability and protection compared to other types of expansion joints because of our team that’s dedicated to quality through the entire extrusion manufacturing process.

Expansion Joint Applications

Extruded rubber expansion joints are most commonly used in the following industries:

  • Manufacturing - The most common application of expansion joints is in industrial piping systems where they’re used as a transition between two surfaces. They are also often used as outgassing expansion joints in clean room ductwork.
  • Construction - Expansion joints are also referred to as movement joints because of their ability to keep structures held in place. They are commonly used in architecture and construction to relieve stress on building materials caused by natural expansion and contraction or by seismic activity.

Because of the versatility of our extruded rubber profiles, they can be used as a viable solution in so many different industries and applications. Our design and engineering team can assist you in finding the right extrusion to meet your needs.

Please contact us to discuss your specific application needs.

Glazing System Profiles

Product Description

Glazing systems profiles are used to seat and seal architectural facades and fenestration systems.  They can range from simple, rectangular setting blocks to complicated multi-purpose gaskets.  Common uses are environmental barriers, filling voids between two surfaces, and ensuring a proper fit.

Custom Design Avaliable

We take pride in our ability to deliver a custom manufactured product to meet your specification requirements. Based on our extensive capabilities, nearly any design can be met. Below are strictly a few examples of profile types that ELBEX has the capability to produce. For more information please reference our capabilities page.

NOTE: Because many of our orders are custom orders, we do not carry an inventory. Please call one of our Sales Representatives to inquire into the item you are interested in.

Extruded Rubber Gaskets and Seals

Gaskets and seals are very general terms for any type of profile that is intended to fill a gap or void and create a barrier.

Both gaskets and seals are commonly used for:

  • Water resistance
  • Air barriers
  • Tight seals
  • Vibration elimination
  • Securing components

Gaskets and seals are often lumped together into the same category because they both provide a strong sealing force, but their functions are slightly different. Seals are used to connect and seal two moving parts, while gaskets are commonly used as static seals between two flat surfaces set in place. Materials used for either product vary, but are often dictated by the specific application and corresponding environmental and chemical exposure.

Extruded rubber gaskets and seals from ELBEX provide superior stability and protection compared to other types of expansion joints because of our team that’s dedicated to quality through the entire extrusion manufacturing process.

Applications of Gaskets and Seals

Extruded rubber gaskets and seals are most commonly used in the following industries:

  • Automotive - Extruded rubber seals are commonly used between engine parts, pumps, and shafts that rotate while gaskets are used as static seals between two flat surfaces that do not move.
  • Plumbing - Rubber gaskets are often used in piping and plumbing applications to provide a strong, lasting, water-tight seal between two pipes.
  • Water Control - Similar to piping and plumbing applications but on a much larger scale, our gaskets and seals are common solutions in water control applications to provide water-tight seals.

Because of the versatility of our extruded rubber profiles, they can be used as a viable sealing solution in so many different industries and applications. Our design and engineering team can assist you in finding the right extrusion to meet your needs.

Bulb Seals for Maximum Sealing Power

Bulb Seals are designed to track into a channel and fill a void or gap, creating a seal. They consist of a mounting mechanism and a bulb section that does the actual sealing.

Depending on the intended application and surrounding conditions, many different materials can be used. But no matter the material, our manufacturing processes yield a strong, durable bulb seal that stays in place and delivers reliable sealing power.

Bulb Seal Applications

Bulb seals are most commonly used around doors, windows, and hatches to provide sealing and insulation. This gives them their alternate name, “trim seals.” They are also sometimes used in industrial mixing and processing applications in which water, dust, or extreme heat need to be sealed off and contained to a specific area or vessel.

  • Automotive - Vehicles are exposed to the elements, and bulb seals can be used to seal off key components to protect the interior.
  • Residential - Bulb seals are often used as weatherstripping around doors and windows.
  • Process Industries - The pharmaceutical and food processing industries often use bulb seals to seal the doors and hatches of industrial mixing and drying equipment.

Please contact us to discuss your specific application needs.

Custom Bulb Seal Design Available

We take pride in our ability to deliver a custom manufactured product to meet your specification requirements. Based on our extensive capabilities, nearly any design can be met.
