Environmental Seal Applications & Product Solutions
Systems that contain critical components need to be shielded from the environment to continue working properly. Preventing that exposure requires environmental seals and gaskets to protect against heat, moisture, UV light, and more elements that cause premature degradation, and in some cases, sudden failure. Mueller Custom Cut’s die-cut solutions allow us to solve one-of-a-kind environmental seal requirements with one-of-a-kind products made to your exact specifications.
Environmental Seal Design & Configuration
When it comes to creating an effective environmental seal, the number one factor is “squeeze.” When rubber is squeezed, the internal structure of the substance pushes back against the surface of the assembly enclosure. An effective level of squeeze is necessary to create a solid environmental barrier that stands the test of time.
Material selection has a significant impact on the quality of an environmental seal, as well. Cheap seals are typically made of either foam or cellular rubber. Although these options are inexpensive, they also lead quickly to leaks that will damage your equipment over time. Mueller Custom Cut uses only high-quality materials like solid rubber to keep environmental damage out for the long haul.
One of the main challenges in environmental seal production is getting the configuration right. Whether you come to us with a set of demanding specifications or need us to determine the right seal configuration based on an existing product, Mueller Custom Cut has the expertise to deal with issues like limited real estate for molding and cutting, large part tolerances, or low compression force. Our equipment is primed to cut and splice seal material to any specification required to ensure a tight fit and material integrity for your products.
