Engineering Seals & Trims
Seals Direct specialise in the design, supply and manufacture of standard and bespoke sections for use within the engineering and manufacturing sector. We regularly work with customers who operate within aerospace, automotive, construction, defence, manufacturing and transportation on new and refurbishment projects using both standard and bespoke sections. Our customers use our products for cushioning surfaces, covering sharp edges and creating watertight seals on doors, hatches and cabinets. We work with our customers to find sealing solutions for their projects allowing for any specific material or usage requirements. Our standard sections, available in both small and large quantities, are available for next working day delivery from our UK based distribution centre.
Some of our customers within the engineering sector work as original
equipment manufacturers developing bespoke products. Our technical team is able
to work alongside you in the development, testing and production of rubber
seals and sections required for your products and equipment. We have
extensively invested in the facilities to design and manufacture custom
extrusions and gaskets in a variety of materials, colours and hardnesses.
Seals For Engineering Applications
Our sponge seals are regularly used where you require easy compression between two surfaces. Our sponge seals and strip are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, with or without self-adhesive backing. They can be used on doors and hatches, or applications where you need a level of cushioning.
Solid rubber is often used for edging applications, cushioning heavy equipment and protecting surfaces such as shelves. It can be easily cut with a sharp knife so can also be used to make custom gaskets. Our rubber strip and sheet is available in different thicknesses and materials (Neoprene, Nitrile and Silicone etc) depending on the required application.
If your requirements cannot be met by one of our standard products, we are able to manufacture bespoke sections and gaskets from a sample or technical drawing. Please contact us for a bespoke quotation.
We manufacture all of our profiles and gaskets from high quality compounds to ensure they provide a long term and hard wearing sealing solution. We regularly work with EPDM, Neoprene, Natural Rubber, Nitrile, PVC, Silicone and Viton but are able to assist with any other material you require for your project. Our materials are available in either general purpose commercial grades as well as materials manufactured to British Standards. We manufacture our profiles and gaskets from both sponge and solid materials in a range of harnesses and densities.
Our extensive range of materials allows you to choose the product most suitable to your application. For example, we recommend using Nitrile if the product will come into contact with oil and Silicone for environments which handle food or may be subjected to high temperatures.
Bespoke Engineering Seals & Trims
We offer a bespoke design and manufacturing service if your sealing requirements cannot be met by one of our standard products. Our 3D CAD facilities allow us to work directly with Design Engineers to identify the best sealing solution for your project. We are able to reverse engineer your existing seal or drawing and extrude an exact replica in a variety of materials, colours and hardnesses. Minimum production runs are as low as 30 metres depending on the required material and construction.
Seals Direct are also a leading supplier
of bespoke mouldings and gaskets. Depending on the seal and application our
rubber mouldings are manufactured using either compression or injection
moulding in a variety of materials and hardnesses. We are able to stamp bespoke
gaskets from both sponge and solid materials from one off to large production
