Custom Molded Rubber Parts
Seal Science is a complete engineering and manufacturing resource for the development and supply of a wide range of custom molded rubber parts. Seal Science’s material design group provides customers with custom engineered compounds capable of meeting the most stringent application requirements. SSI utilizes both on-site compounding and on-site testing for all types of elastomeric materials.
Seal Science is also structured as an engineering support organization. We can provide application and manufacturing solutions for a wide range of industries. SSI incorporates design engineering, material science, and mechanical and physical property testing in our engineering methodology. Seal Science also utilizes 3-dimensional solid modeling and finite element analysis (FEA) when required for more critical applications. Check out this page for more info on our design capabilities.
SSI incorporates many types of manufacturing processes in order to fabricate our custom molded products. With press sizes running from 9″ x 9″ up to to 38″ x 38″, we are able to design and produce small and large volume runs depending on your requirements. Here are the main processes that we use for our rubber products:
- Compression Molding
- Transfer Molding
- Injection Molding
- Hand Lay-up Fabrication
- Cryogenic Deflashing
