  • Closed Cell Sponge Rubber Gaskets

    closed cell sponge rubber gaskets

    Closed cell sponge rubber gaskets from Elasto Proxy don't just meet your application requirements for sealing and insulation. They meet your business requirements for a value-added solution.   

    Closed cell sponge rubber gaskets prevent the flow of liquids and gases to and from the environment. They contain nitrogen-filled cells and provide reliable sealing, cushioning, gap filling, and insulation. Most sponge or expanded rubber is lightweight, flexible, and compressible. Over-compression can cause gasket failure, however, so compound selection is critical.

    As an experienced gasket fabricator, Elasto Proxy helps you choose the right rubber for your application. We then custom-fabricate gaskets that save you time and money. Many types of closed cell sponge rubber are available, and different compounds provide particular properties. These sheet materials and rubber extrusions also support water jet cutting, adhesive bonding or splicing, and taping for peel-and-stick gaskets. Continue reading

  • Custom Skylight Seals Case Study

    Custom Skylight SealCustom skylight seals need to meet demanding environmental and load testing requirements. When a skylight company faced a sealing challenge, Elasto Proxy provided the perfect solution on a tight timetable.

    Skylights are specialized windows that builders install in a roof or ceiling. They admit natural light, provide a visual connection to the outdoor environment, and support passive solar heating. Skylights can help reduce energy costs, but their benefits go beyond sustainability. For example, the giant domed skylights found atop some commercial buildings are designed to enhance the occupants’ overall experience. By combining art with infrastructure, these complex structures truly illustrate the art of sealing. If a skylight fails, however, property damage and personal injury may result. Continue reading

  • RoHS Compliance and Rubber Products

    RoHS ComplianceRestriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) isn’t just about wires, chips, switches, and circuit boards. RoHS compliance involves component-level rubber parts, too.

    Companies that do business in European Union (EU) member states need to comply with RoHS, an EU directive that restricts the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic products and equipment. RoHS compliance won’t ensure your success in Europe, but non-compliance can have serious consequences. In addition to fines, penalties, and lost sales, businesses that violate RoHS requirements may have their products returned by customs officials.

    To avoid RoHS violations, product designers and material buyers need to understand current and future EU requirements. Because RoHS is a series of directives rather than a single directive, designers and buyers need to account for the original RoHS directive (2002/95/EC), RoHS 2 (2011/65/EU), and RoHS requirements that will take effect in July 2019. As a global provider of sealing and insulation solutions, Elasto Proxy can help you to achieve and maintain RoHS compliance at the component level. Continue reading

  • How Elasto Proxy Supports Infrastructure Projects

    infrastructure projectsInfrastructure projects need sealing and insulation solutions that reduce risk and strengthen product designs. That’s why the industry chooses Elasto Proxy.

    Buildings are more than just enclosed structures. In addition to foundations, roofing, and exterior walls, they contain components such as doors, windows, flooring, and lighting fixtures. Industrial, commercial, and residential buildings also include non-structural systems such as HVAC, plumbing, electrical power, and fire protection. Together, all of these components and systems represent infrastructure – and infrastructure needs sealing and insulation from Elasto Proxy. Continue reading

  • EMI Gaskets for Strong, Thin Electronic Designs

    EMI GasketsElasto Proxy custom-fabricates EMI gaskets from nickel-graphite filled silicones that contain an inner layer of conductive fabric for added strength and thinner designs.

    Some electronic designs need EMI gaskets that balance physical strength with support for thinner devices. Conductive elastomeric shielding gaskets are a proven technology, but some design engineers worry that shielding silicones are packed with so many particles that these elastomers are brittle and will tear easily. Other engineers believe that particle-filled shielding elastomers are too thick, and can’t support electronic products with thinner profiles. These concerns are important ones, but Elasto Proxy can address them by fabricating EMI gaskets from nickel-graphite shielding silicones that are reinforced with conductive fabric. Continue reading

  • Fiberglass Gaskets for High-Temperature Sealing and Insulation

    Heat Exchanger Gaskets Heat Exchanger Gaskets

    Fiberglass gaskets are used in high-temperature environments. Elasto Proxy custom-fabricates fiberglass insulation and sealing solutions that meet all of your application requirements.

    Furnaces, boilers, stoves, vehicles, and lighting all have something in common. They require high-temperature gaskets for sealing and insulation. Typically, these heat-resistant gaskets are part of a larger assembly or system. For example, a gas furnace may contain heat exchangers made of metal plates and high-temperature gaskets. A variable-speed blower creates a vacuum, induces a draft, and forces hot air past the primary and secondary heat exchangers, which transfer heat between two fluids. The heat exchanger gaskets aren’t the only components in this complex system, but they play an important role.

    For engineers, choosing the right materials for heat-resistant gaskets is an essential design consideration. It’s also important to select gasket materials with the right environmental resistance, but without “over-engineering” the part based on actual service temperatures. As an experienced gasket fabricator, Elasto Proxy can recommend the right rubber or non-rubber material for your high-temperature application. Using water jet cutting, we convert gasket materials cost-effectively without metal dies or tooling charges. Our skilled production personnel perform gasket bonding or joining operations with precision. Continue reading

  • Fluorosilicone Gaskets for Pharmaceutical Equipment

    Fluorosilicone Gaskets for PharmaFor fluorosilicone gaskets, manufacturers of pharmaceutical equipment choose Elasto Proxy. 

    The pharmaceutical industry uses solid dosage processing equipment to manufacture finished doses of medication in tablet or capsule form. Often, these solid doses are coated to mask the medicine’s taste or odor, protect the drug in the stomach, and to control its release profile. Tablet coating equipment rotates pills and ensures that coatings are applied evenly. This pharmaceutical equipment features stainless steel construction and includes components such as pumps, spray nozzles, and electric motors.

    When a major manufacturer of solid dosage processing equipment needed to replace the door and side gaskets on a tablet coating machine, the company asked Elasto Proxy to supply the sealing solution. The manufacturer was refurbishing some used equipment, and needed two side gaskets and one door gasket rather than hundreds or even thousands of parts. Each of the bonded gaskets was thick and large, and the rubber that was required was fairly expensive. Elasto Proxy custom-fabricated a cost-effective solution that met all of the equipment manufacturer’s requirements. Continue reading

  • QPL Connector Gaskets for EMI Shielding in Military Electronics

    QPL Connector GasketsQPL connector gaskets meet demanding DoD standards. This is the second in a series of technical articles about why defense contractors choose EMI gaskets from Elasto Proxy.

    Some military contracts require QPL connector gaskets made from Qualified Product List (QPL) materials. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) manages the QPL program, which is designed to ensure performance, quality, and reliability in mission-critical military electronics. Achieving a QPL listing is a demanding process, and not all material suppliers can meet DoD requirements.

    For design engineers and technical buyers, sourcing QPL materials is only part of the challenge. In addition to compound selection, it’s important to evaluate a potential partner’s manufacturing capabilities. EMI gaskets that are made of particle-filled silicones support various fabrication methods, but designers and buyers need to pick a gasket fabricator with the right balance of experience and expertise.
