Sealing systems are widely used in a variety of industries that range from aerospace and military to microelectronics, oil, energy and gas, heavy-duty diesel and automotive, life sciences, and more. To accommodate varied uses, Performance Seals offers offer seals and gaskets in a variety of types, material, and specifications to suit particular applications.
Types Of Composite Sealing Systems
Engineered sealing products often fall into four major groups:
- Integral Seals
- Fastener and Fitting Seals
- Metal seals
Gask-O-Seals offer a one piece solution to sealing, as a metal, plastic, or composite retainer includes a custom engineered rubber ring affixed in a machined groove. Made for flat or curved surfaces, Gask-O-Seals are reliable, long-lasting, and durable as they provide leak-proof sealing capabilities.
Integral Seals eliminate the machined groove and instead feature a chemically or mechanically bonded elastomer on the frame edge. Also a one piece solution, they are flexible enough to conform to various mating surfaces and work even on very thin seals.
Fastener and Fitting Seals are designed to provide reliable static sealing around screws (Stat-O-Seals™), bolts (ThreadSeals™), tube fittings (Lock-O-Seals™), and many other fasteners. The Parker line of seals offers a “splined and coined” mechanical bond that eliminates the O-ring groove; a self-centering elastomer is accurately positioned on the retainer to both provide sealing and ensure metal to metal contact.
Metal Seals are the perfect solution for applications where elastomers won’t do the job. Metal properties such as load, spring back, and ductility are used to ensure maximum sealing performance, even when the seal has to hold up in extreme heat and pressure or other exposure to chemicals.
