Seals & Gaskets
Redwood Plastics offers gaskets and seal solutions for a wide variety of applications in Redco™ Rubber, Redco™ PTFE and Redco™ Polyurethane with quick turnarounds. Our state-of-the-art facility can produce gaskets and seals with tight dimensional tolerances in a variety of materials to suit an endless list of applications. Common applications include:
Liquid Seals & Gaskets
The most common type of gasket is to seal against the leakage of liquids. Certain rubber types offer better resistance to chemicals, others are more suited to industries involving oils, fuels and solvents.
If FDA or the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is a concern, many of our urethane and rubber materials (Redco™ EPDM, Redco™ Nitrile, Redco™ Urethanes, Redco™ Silicone) are FDA Compliant per CFR 21.177.2600 and 3A Dairy Compliant. We also have materials available that are NSF61, KTW and WRAS Approved and Metal Detectable . Please contact us if you need help to identify the most cost effective grade for your process or application.
Environmental Seals & Gaskets
These seals are used in enclosures to guard against dust and other environmental contaminants. Control panels, etc. require protection but easy access to control and/or maintain equipment. These seals and gaskets play an integral role in ensuring equipment is running optimally.
Anti Vibration Pads & Gaskets
Anti-vibration pads are a way to absorb frequencies to reduce damage or noise caused by vibration. Anti-vibration materials are used in applications such as machinery mountings, pipe supports or structural bearings.
Sensitive displays need protection from shock, dust, dirt, liquids, etc. In some applications, mountings are used as an electrical insulator or to adsorb vibration.
We utilize several different fabrication methods depending upon our customer’s requirements. A +/- 0.005″ tolerance is possible with our knife cutter, depending on the material. We can waterjet up to 6″ thick and hand cut, 20′ x 200′. Please contact us with your requirements and we can help determine the most optimal fabrication method and material. Our services include:
- Flashcut CNC (knife cutter)
- Steel rule die cutting (clicker-die or die-stamp)
- Hand Cutting
- Waterjet Cutting
We take pride in our ability to consistently produce accurate gaskets and parts guaranteed to meet your exact specifications and function perfectly within your application.
With our proprietary line of rubber and synthetic polymers and the advanced materials we stock from leading vendors, we have the tools to create gaskets and seals that solve a wide range of design challenges.
