Extruded Shapes & Profiles

Profiles designed to fit your world.

In the dynamic world of industrial sealing, the significance of extruded shapes and profiles cannot be overstated. These versatile components play a pivotal role in ensuring the integrity of various sealing applications, from automotive gaskets to industrial machinery.

Extruded shapes and profiles are meticulously crafted through a precision manufacturing process that involves forcing a raw material, typically rubber or plastic, through a specialized die to create intricate cross-sectional designs. The result is a vast array of custom-tailored sealing solutions, each engineered to meet specific requirements with precision and reliability. These extruded profiles not only provide essential sealing functions, such as preventing leaks and protecting against environmental factors, but they also offer durability, resilience, and adaptability in diverse operating conditions.

the versatility of extruded profiles.

Common Profiles

O-Ring Cord

A flexible, circular cross-sectioned extruded profile used to create custom O-rings for sealing applications. These versatile cords effectively prevent leaks and maintain system integrity by accommodating diverse operating conditions.

Hollow O-Ring Cord

Tubular profiles with a circular cross-section, suitable for specialized sealing applications requiring flexibility and resilience. These cords are customized to fit sealing grooves, contributing to reliable and effective sealing solutions.

Trim Seals

Extruded profiles designed to provide edge protection and sealing for sharp or exposed edges in automotive and industrial applications. They safeguard against environmental factors while enhancing safety and aesthetics.

D-Seals

D-shaped profiles used for sealing doors, windows, and enclosures. They provide effective sealing, preventing leaks and protecting against environmental factors in various applications.
Materials

Explore the importance of extruded shape and profile materials and learn about common options.

For O-ring cord applications, nitrile (NBR) is a versatile option, while Viton® (FKM) excels in high-temperature and chemical-resistant environments. Silicone (VMQ) stands out for its flexibility and biocompatibility, making it a go-to choice for hollow O-ring cord in medical applications.
 
Trim seals benefit from materials like EPDM, known for its weather resistance, and TPE, which combines flexibility with durability. When it comes to D-seals, options such as EPDM and neoprene provide excellent sealing performance in various conditions.
