SECONDARY MANUFACTURING PROCEDURES
Save your company some money. Specialize in what you do well and let Clean Seal assist you in manufacturing processes they specialize in.
Foam and rubber sheets can be die cut to fit irregular shapes. Gasket materials used around automotive style lights, for example, often need to be hand cut requiring valuable time. Clean Seal can complete this process by die cutting the shape and reducing valuable labor costs.
CUTTING & NOTCHING
If you need to facilitate the forming of a gasket, you often need to make special cuts for relief points, notches and holes. This takes time and effort. Clean Seal can make these cuts and drill these holes in-house, saving both time and money.
CUT TO SPECIFIC LENGTHS
Need the extruded rubber gasket cut to a specific length? Why hand measure out each piece? Clean Seal can do it much more efficiently to save you time and money.
Several methods of splicing, using a variety of adhesives, give you the flexibility of fitting the gasket to your specific needs. Each has advantages and disadvantages.
Butt Splice – used for fabricating endless gaskets where there is limited or no strain on the splice.
Bevel Splice – used as an alternate to the butt splice if the cross sectional area does not allow for a suitable bond using the butt splice.
Corner Splice – used to form gaskets of special configurations. They provide a satisfactory static seal where the splice is not under a strain.
Molded Splice – Many gaskets and seals can be produced economically by splicing extruded shapes to form complete gaskets. A radius corner or square corner can be spliced to fit a specified shape.
A rubber extrusion around a window opening is often the best way to keep the rain and wind out. Clean Seal uses the hot splicing/vulcanizing process to chemically bond two ends of a rubber extrusion together. By creating an endless seal, the gasket is more impermeable to the elements. This is especially important when a moving vehicle is involved due to flexing of the parts. The bond is longer lasting and maintains its elastic properties.
Clean Seal can vulcanize extruded rubber into circles, squares, and a variety of other shapes. From a simple square window to a complex door opening, Clean Seal can manufacture the endless gasket for your requirements.
