Rubber Extrusions, Orings and Seals

Flexible Connections offers FDA-approved sponge products. Our range of FDA sponge options includes self-adhesive silicone sponge extrusions. These products are available in standard blue and white colours, with the addition of Blue Metal Detectable, all with the flexibility to accommodate non-standard sizes. In addition to our food-grade sponge, we provide a comprehensive solution with a range of rubber extrusions, O-rings, and seals. Our Food-grade and flame-retardant compounds are in addition to standard black rubbers. Here’s an overview of the benefits of using these components:

Benefits of Using Extrusions:

  1. Customisation: Extrusions enable a high level of customisation, creating complex shapes to meet specific design requirements.
  2. Cost-Effective Production: The extrusion process is cost-effective for large quantities, resulting in lower production costs per unit.
  3. Material Efficiency: Minimizes material waste and produces continuous lengths, contributing to cost savings and environmental considerations.
  4. Ease of Fabrication: Extrusions are easier to fabricate and integrate into larger systems due to consistent shapes and dimensions.
  5. Sealing Properties: Designed for effective sealing, valuable in applications where preventing the ingress of contaminants or fluids is crucial.

Benefits of Using O-Rings:

  1. Effective Sealing: O-rings seal against liquids and gases, preventing leaks in various applications.
  2. Versatility: Available in multiple materials for versatile use in different environmental conditions.
  3. Simple Design: A straightforward structure allows easy installation, replacement, and maintenance.
  4. Cost-Effective: Provides an efficient and cost-effective sealing solution compared to more complex mechanisms.
  5. Temperature and Chemical Resistance: Can resist various temperatures and chemicals for diverse applications.

Benefits of Using Rubber Seals:

  1. Flexibility: Inherently flexible, conforms to irregular surfaces, and provides effective sealing in dynamic environments.
  2. Durable: Known for durability and resilience, it withstands repeated compression and expansion cycles without significant loss of effectiveness.
  3. Weather Resistance: Exhibits excellent resistance to weathering, UV exposure, and other environmental factors.
  4. Vibration Damping: Absorbs and dampens vibrations, improving equipment performance and longevity.
  5. Noise Reduction: Acts as isolators, reducing noise transmission and vibration damping.
  6. Cost-Effective Sealing Solution: Offers a cost-effective solution for reliable sealing in various applications, balancing performance and affordability.

In summary, the diverse benefits of extrusions, O-rings, and rubber seals make them valuable components in various industrial and engineering applications. Flexible Connections specialises in providing these solutions, offering customisation, high-quality materials, and expertise in meeting specific application requirements.
