Bonded Seals – Metal & Rubber
Seal Science is a complete engineering and manufacturing resource for the development and supply of a wide range of rubber-to-metal and other substrate bonded seals. Component selections include standard mold-in-place gaskets to complex multi material sealing components. SSI uses precise co-molding processes to vulcanize an elastomeric seal profile directly into a non-elastomeric carrier. This process yields a chemical bond far superior to one that uses a cured profile bonded to a substrate with an adhesive.
The bonding process incorporates elastomeric based adhesives that concurrently adhere to both the substrate and elastomer during the curing/vulcanization process. This process adds to the elimination of air trap and contamination in the bond line, as well as providing a significantly robust bond.
