Custom T Shaped Rubber Seals
Manufactured to order from sponge and solid materials in a selection of sizes, colours and hardnesses.
We can manufacture custom T shaped rubber seals in a selection of solid and sponge rubber compounds. These sections are suitable for a diverse range of sealing applications where you require a rubber product to join two surfaces together. The simplistic shape of this profile allows it to easily push into a gap between two panels or edges. Rubber T seals can be extruded with a straight or curved stem of any thickness, and are often manufactured with a rounded head to create an aesthetic sealing solution for instances the product will be visible.
Weighbridges, used to weigh industrial vehicles, are fitted with large T shaped sections which push into the gap between the outer metal frame and weighbridge platform. They are used to stop dirt and debris accumulating in the pit damaging the mechanism.
Our custom seals are made-to-order based on your projects requirements. Please contact us with your specifications.
Material and Dimensions
T shaped rubber seals are available from an extensive range of off-the-shelf products but can also be manufactured to order. To enable us to look into whether your requirements can be met by a standard or custom profile, we require dimensions of the required seal or an existing sample.

Our Custom Rubber Seal Manufacturing Process
We work with a large range of rubber and plastic compounds including EPDM, Natural rubber, Neoprene, Nitrile, Silicone and PVC, many of which are available in either sponge or solid forms. This selection allows us to extrude a profile taking into account any environmental, chemical or temperature demands.
The manufacturing process starts with our specialist toolmakers who turn your sample or technical dimensioned drawing into a tool which can be used to extrude an exact replica of your rubber seal. This extrusion process uses temperature and pressure to push your chosen rubber compound through the tool to extrude the required shape. The extruded seal is then cured using heat to vulcanise and harden the extrusion.
Although the majority of rubber seals are manufactured using a very similar procedure, we understand that your sealing solution may require additional non-standard processes. This could include joining, applying self-adhesive backing or cutting to desired lengths. Whilst it is possible to do this on-site after production, it is often preferable to do this at the time of manufacture to increase the speed and ease of installation of the final product.
Manufacturing a custom rubber seal can be completed at a relatively low cost with production runs requiring as little as 30 metres. For large production quantities, we have the option of manufacturing sample lengths before going to bulk production. This allows you to look at the finished product and test how it performs. The process of moving from concept to delivery can normally be fulfilled within two to three weeks, depending on the material and complexity of the profile.

Seal Design Service
Our CAD facilities allow us to work with you in designing the best sealing solution for your project. If your sealing requirements cannot be met by a standard section and you do not have a sample or technical dimensioned drawing, our Design Engineers can design a custom solution to your requirements.
Standard T Shaped Rubber Seals
With over 700 stocked products, our off-the-shelf T shaped rubber sections can be purchased by the metre in various sizes and materials. These products are normally immediately available and can be dispatched the same day on a next working day courier.
Our rubber T sections are manufactured from EPDM and are available in a small range of sizes and thicknesses. They push into a gap to join two surfaces together.
T seals are manufactured from closed cell materials so do not absorb water.
They are suitable for various applications, such as making watertight seals and
bridging the gap between two panels.
Crittall window seal is a tiny 11.5mm x 5mm T section designed to be used on
Crittall windows and frames. The head of this section slides into a groove on
the frame allowing for the tail to act as a flipper when the window is closed.
Our sponge automotive seals are suitable for various applications, such
as making watertight seals to stop water ingress. Although they are primarily
used for automotive applications, their unique shapes allow them to be used for
other sealing projects.
Other Custom Rubber Seals
Custom rubber seals can be extruded in virtually any shape in most rubber compounds. Different profiles are suitable for different applications and selecting the correct shape, material and hardness is essential to ensure a long term sealing solution. Visit our
