Ensuring your seals and gaskets are in good condition will ensure the long life of your equipment. With years of experience, we have identified the materials to meet the performance and certification needs of most applications. We have invested heavily to ensure we only supply seals and gaskets of the highest quality with full traceability.
With its resistance to extreme environments and high temperatures as well as being FDA compliant, silicone is an extremely versatile material suitable for most industries including food and pharmaceutical. Our gaskets also meet the 1935/2004 EU directive and we can also meet the requirements of the 3A standard.
We also offer blue food grade silicone with the added feature of metal detectability, often a common requirement within the food industry. These gaskets are also magnetically attractable therefore allowing in-line magnetic separators to extract fragments of rubber if the gasket is damaged during assembly or operation.
Constructed from food grade Nitrile, these gaskets have been developed to not only provide metal detectability and magnetic attractability but also provide earth continuity and prevent the build-up of static electricity. Ideally suited for hazardous environments or when materials have a low minimum ignition energy (MIE), these ATEX approved gaskets provide high performance sealing as well as removing the need for conventional earth bonding methods such as metal earth straps or clips.
