Western Rubbers’ non-reinforced inflatable seals are only made from elastomers. They are mostly extruded constructions; however, they can also be molded to meet specific dimensional parameters. Unlike fabric reinforced inflatable seals, non-reinforced constructions cannot withstand very high internal pressure. Being available at relatively lower prices, without compromising on quality and performance,non-reinforced inflatable seals are the preferred option across the globe for regular sealing applications.
In applications involving extreme pressure/temperature conditions or in rugged environments like ocean beds, high temperature furnaces, nuclear plants, etc. Western Rubbers’ molded fabric reinforced inflatable seals are recommended. The molding process eliminates joints and the fabric reinforcement adds to the seal’s overall strength and resilience, hence offering superior seal shelf life. Western Rubbers’ fabric reinforced inflatable seals have complex manufacturing processes,requiring special tooling for the same. With over 30 years of industrial experience, Western Rubbers’ has developed the required tools and skill sets to manufacture standard as well as any custom engineered profile. Fabrics are carefully molded within the seals with high levels of precision. Depending upon the application of the seal, fabric with appropriate properties is chosen.
