At Elbex, our diverse experience and manufacturing capabilities allow us to produce custom rubber extrusions for a wide range of industries — among which is the appliance industry. Refrigerators, washing machines, dishwashers, and other appliances all need to contain cold, water, or heat. Rubber extrusions get the job done.
The Role of Rubber Extrusions
Rubber extrusions — particularly in the form of seals and gaskets — are designed to create a reliable barrier within appliances and other products. They create a powerful sealing force that can provide water resistance or an air barrier, eliminate vibrations, and secure components. Materials and specifications will vary based on the needs and environment of the application.
Examples of Appliance Applications
With these uses in mind, it should come as no surprise that rubber extrusions are in high demand in the appliance industry. Rubber extrusions help create air barriers for refrigerators and ovens. They can eliminate vibrations in dryers, and provide much-needed water resistance for dishwashers and washing machines. They can even be used for washing machine hoses and blender lids.
