Gaskets & Seals: Why Quality Matters

Gaskets & Seals: Why Quality Matters

While a rubber gasket or seal may seem like a small thing, it can have a significant impact on the lasting integrity and quality of an application. Because of this, the quality of the gasket or seal itself should be a top priority, regardless of whether you need a custom or standard part.

Gaskets & Seals Fulfill Vital Roles

Rubber gaskets and seals are used in a wide range of industries, including mass transit, industrial manufacturing, construction, automotive, water control, appliances, and more. In each of these industries, gaskets and seals help secure components and reduce harmful vibrations, while also creating airtight and watertight barriers to prevent environmental damage and contamination.

Quality gaskets and seals ensure the lasting durability and functional integrity of each of these applications. Without them, parts would break down swiftly and contamination would be all too common.

Ensuring Quality

Quality gaskets and seals depend on two things: the materials and the design. A design that is custom-fitted to your application’s unique specifications will be able to deliver the desired performance. Materials that are suited for the application’s environmental, chemical, and other exposures will be less vulnerable to corrosion and deterioration.

Working with a manufacturer that understands the nuances of different elastomers will ensure you get a gasket or seal with the right specifications for your unique application needs.
