Tips For Custom Designing A Silicone Rubber Gasket

From prototype development to large volume manufacturing, having the right service provider on your side will be a critical factor for your business.

At Standard Rubber Products Co. (SRP), we have the experience, expertise and the state of the art systems and equipment to assist in prototype development and manufacturing of any and all silicone rubber gasket components you may require. We also provide a full line of other gasket materials, shielding and insulating options as well as weather-stripping.

There are several important factors to consider when designing and developing a customized or prototype silicone rubber gasket. Our team is here to assist in all phases and steps, ensuring the gasket material, design and engineering will achieve the specific requirements given the operating environment.

Understanding the Demands on the Gasket

Under most operational conditions, silicone rubber is an excellent option for a cost-effective and very durable gasket material. This is a high-performance elastomer that is highly resistant to damage or changes in performance due to extreme temperatures.

They can function effectively in temperatures as low as -67 to over 400 degrees Fahrenheit and up to 450 degrees. It is also resistant to moisture, ozone, fungal growth and many chemicals.

Production Options

We provide the right production method for any given specifics, shape and type of silicone rubber gasket required. We offer flash cutting, laser cutting, waterjet cutting, and rotary die-cutting services.

With precision services, most often die cutting, we can provide high volume production of gaskets with extremely tight tolerances. We have built-in quality control that delivers beyond the expectations of our customers with each order.

Let our engineers talk to your team about your silicone rubber custom gasket design. We can provide the information you need to choose the best and lowest cost production method possible and to enhance your gasket design for optimal durability and lifecycle considerations.
