Cold Bonding for Custom Gaskets
QUEBEC—Elasto Proxy, a custom fabricator of industrial rubber products, has introduced technical resources to offer help for manufacturers who want to learn whether cold bonding is the right splicing technique for their custom rubber gaskets. As Elasto Proxy explains in an on-line article and video, there are many factors to consider.
The article, “Cold Bonding for Custom Gaskets,” is available via the Elasto Proxy website (www.elastoproxy.com). The video is embedded in the article, and also appears on YouTube.
Cold offers important advantages, but it’s not right for every sealing application. For example, although cold splicing can be used with corners that include odd angles, it’s not recommended for custom gaskets that will be exposed to high temperatures or outdoor environments.
Hot splicing techniques produce custom gaskets with stronger corners, but not all sealing applications require this level of performance. Hot splicing is also more expensive than cold bonding. Glued gaskets, as cold-bonded gaskets are also called, require no special tooling and cure at ambient temperatures. Elasto Proxy specializes in the design and custom fabrication of specialty seals, thermal and acoustic insulation, vibration dampening products and materials, EMI shielding, and other high-quality rubber and plastic parts. For over 25 years, the company has supplied low-to-medium volume quantities of rubber products to partners in a variety of industries.
