At Elbex, our team is proud to be able to produce a wide range of high-quality rubber extrusions — including setting blocks. Here is a closer look at what setting blocks do, and the role they play in a variety of industries.
Setting Block Basics
Setting blocks are used to position different materials in an application. As part of this, they help minimize uneven surfaces and reduce vibration between the different surfaces. Setting blocks are produced in a variety of shapes — ranging from simple rectangular profiles to more detailed options that track into channels. Setting blocks are most frequently used for glazing applications.
Key Industries That Use Setting Blocks
Setting blocks are most used in industrial manufacturing, construction, and architecture. For example, setting blocks may be used to help set glass within aluminum channels to seal fenestration systems or architectural facades. Materials must be selected based on expected environmental exposure and other potential hazards. The right materials and dimensions will ensure that the finished setting block stands the test of time and delivers reliable performance.
Whether you need setting blocks or another rubber extrusion for your work, you can count on Elbex to deliver high-quality products that will deliver the performance you need.
