rubber extruded profiles
to meet every sealing requirement
Western Rubbers is a manufacturer of all types of extruded rubber seals. Our seals are made up of elastomers having specially developed in-house formulations, which make our seals not only appealing in aesthetics but also long lasting in extreme environments. We take pride in extruding intricate shapes and designs, which have otherwise been difficult to manufacture. We guide and work with our clients to meet their stringent parameters on compression set, elongation, hardness, density and other such physical as well as chemical properties which are required in their application.
Polymers Used for
Manufacturing Rubber Extrusions
Ethylene Propylene (EPDM)
Ethylene Propylene Diene Rubber has excellent weather, heat, and ozone resistance due to saturated polymer chain.
Natural Rubber (NR)
The only available natural rubber sourced from rubber trees, it has one of the best physical properties amongst all elastomers.
Hydrogenated Nitrile (HNBR)
It is a saturated form of nitrile rubber known for physical strength retention and resistance to oil, heat and chemicals.
One of the most versatile synthetic rubbers. Can resist a very wide range of temperatures from -50 to 300 degree celsius.
Similar to silicone, fluorine in the polymer chain helps in getting higher resistance to oils and low temperatures compared to silicone.
Also known as FKM or Fluoroelastomer, it is known to have excellent chemical resistance in comparison to all materials.
Neoprene® ( Chloroprene )
Also known as Chloroprene rubber & has chlorine in its polymer chain. Due to this it is naturally fire retardant.
Poly Tetra Fluoro Ethylene or fluoroplastics are preferred for manufacturing Diaphragms and seals.
Nitrile Butadiene Rubber is known for its swell resistance use in alcohol, petrochemical and other derived fluids.
Styrene Butadiene Rubber generally competes with natural rubber in its properties. It is extensively used in manufacturing of tyres.
Also known as thermoplastic rubber, they combine the characteristics of rubber with the recyclability and processing advantages of plastics.

Rubber Extruded Profiles
U seals also known as Rubber U channel or U type rubber extrusions.. One of their primary uses is to provide edge protection. These kinds of seals are predominantly made in EPDM and are primarily used in doors and window hatches
D seals have unique design features that allow them to be hollow from within. This provides a D seal with excellent rebound properties. This rebound resilience is the reason why D seals tend to last longer in applications like doors, windows, acoustics and impact absorption.
The Steam in P seals enables its attachment to a retainer which makes P seal rubber extrusions very versatile. They are also referred to as musical notes seals and tadpole seals. P seals are manufactured in elastomers such as silicone, EPDM and TPE.
H seals are used between windows and doors for shock absorption and heat and sound insulation. When used in glass facades, these extrusions are also known as glazing rubber gaskets. They are primarily manufactured in EPDM and silicone and tend to have excellent weather resistance.
E type seals are also known as refrigerator seals. These seals have an added benefit of hollow bulbs. Hollow bulbs provide maximum compressibility and rebound resilience resulting in excellent sealing. These E seals rubber extrusions can be modified to have ridges on the sealing surface for added grip.
Solid seals or rubber cords are primarily manufactured in silicone, EPDM, BUNA N and FKM. These solid cords can be circular, rectangular, trapezoidal or triangular depending on the application. Solid rubber extrusions are used in autoclaving systems, boilers, mechanical fixtures, chemical drums, filtration systems, manhole covers and many such applications.
