As you can well imagine, gaskets can become damaged over time, either due to wear and tear or due to accidental causes. So, depending on the reported damage or on the customer’s request, you can either choose to replace or repair the rubber gasket or profile
. In any case, this is one of those parts of the machinery or tool that should always be checked periodically so as to detect any damage in due time.
RUBBER GASKETS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURES
Thanks to the thixotropic property of the polyurethane, this type of soft or hard rubber gaskets ensures perfect adherence as well as excellent insulation over a long time, even in case of temperature changes and vibrations. Bontempi produces soft rubber gaskets and hard rubber profiles ad hoc, at the customer’s request, suited to all kinds of uses and with customised shapes and sizes. We can supply both single samples and large quantities. Our gaskets, especially those made of rubber for high temperatures, prevent surface corrosion and retain their sealing properties across a temperature range of -50°C to 250°C with peaks of up to 300°C. All the solutions offered by our company are versatile and tailor-made. Moreover, a stringent quality management system guarantees products that perfectly comply with the required specifications and the large number of needs and are able to optimally meet the practical functions (such as a long service life).
Thixotropic polyurethane gaskets are used in a wide range of sectors and, specifically, in places where seepage of external agents such as rain is likely to occur, in case of extreme temperatures (hot or cold) and, more generally speaking, on parts subjected to rubbing or constant movement. Rubber gaskets are also often used to seal machinery and engines, screw connections, filters, flanges, air ducts, cooling system pumps, compressors, water pumps, turbines, transmissions, petrol pumps, oil sumps, heat exchangers, submersible pumps, exhaust pipes and much more.
SOFT OR HARD RUBBER GASKETS
There is a huge variety of soft rubber gaskets, hard rubber profiles and rubber profiles for glass available on the market, but their usage constraints are so many and so different that it is practically impossible to foresee and satisfy them all in advance. This is why we manufacture rubber gaskets made-to-measure and at the customer’s specific request, so as to meet particular requirements and fit all parts of the machine or of the product perfectly and flawlessly.
Our gaskets are made by qualified and constantly updated personnel using the most advanced machines and constantly developing technologies. Made-to-measure rubber profiles are produced through the use of moulding presses that cut the rubber according to a computerised drawing indicating the exact dimensions of the gasket itself. This type of processing makes it possible to obtain a product that is perfect in every detail and that will efficiently adapt in order to ensure total insulation.
Bontempi is able to produce gaskets in a variety of sizes, from the smallest up to very thick ones, such as those designed for industrial equipment. The know-how acquired over many years in the sector allows us to offer the best solutions and made-to-measure rubber gaskets or profiles best suited to the different types of use.
In order to draw up a specific estimate for your request, we will need a photograph of the part to be processed or a dimensioned drawing of it, indicating the materials and thicknesses. Then, so that we may perform a very accurate and specific job, we need to receive the part at our premises in order to carry out the processing directly on the product. In this way, whether it is the production of hard rubber profiles, rubber gaskets for glass or rubber gaskets for high temperatures, we will be able to guarantee a unique and made-to-measure product.
Lastly, the choice of the right rubber gasket or rubber profile entails multiple aspects that go from the choice of material to the assessment of the mechanical, physical and chemical characteristics up to the identification of the most appropriate sector of use. In fact, our studies have also underscored how the choice of the right gasket for all sectors is crucial in order to make the most of the qualities of installations and machines and at the same time to avoid jeopardising the operation of the machine to which the gasket is applied. In order to properly deal with the many factors at play, the best decision to make is to turn to professionals in the sector such as Bontempi.
