Processing Characteristics of Seal Elastomers 640468

Seal elastomers are processed on conventional rubber equipment. The usual operations performed are mixing, extruding, molding, and finishing. Seals and gaskets are also made by the lathe cutting process and by die cutting from sheet stock. The advent of special high temperature and fluid resistant polymers has not caused abnormal problems in processing. Conventional equipment has been usable for the fabrication of specialty seals and gaskets.
