Rubber has a number of properties that are ideally suited for gaskets and seals. Added to this, the flexibility and durability of rubber is ideally suited to applications where noise or vibration dampening is a consideration. Finally, Rubber is the most cost-effective material to use where temperatures and pressures are low and the chemical environment is mild.
ATC Industry solutions offer a wide range of rubber gaskets made from a range of materials including:
- Viton rubber gaskets
- Nitrile rubber gaskets
- Neoprene rubber gaskets
- EPDM rubber gaskets
Each of these elastomers have slightly different mechanical and chemical properties. Therefore, the type of rubber gasket selected will depend on the application type and the environment in which the gasket is used. For example, a Nitrile rubber gasket is suited to an application that involves sealing a fuel or oil line while an EPDM is suited to a steam line and is more resistant to chemicals like acids.
ATC Engineers can advise on the best materials for use in any particular environment where a particular rubber gasket is needed. We also can advise on O-rings, rubber seals and other more complex sealing solutions.
ATC can supply just about any type of rubber gasket you may need and can tailor make gaskets to our clients’ requirements. We also offer gaskets made from a wide range of other materials.
