Appalachian Gas Measurement Short Course

Appalachian Gas Measurement Short Course

Seal & Design has been invited to display their products at the Appalachian Gas Measurement Short Course.  The exhibit dates are August 14, 15, and 16th  at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, PA. We will be highlighting our high-end rubber compounds in HNBR, Viton, Aflas, Chermaz, Simriz, and Perlast Elastomers.

Poron Urethane Foam

High performance cushioning materials for multiple footwear and fashion applications

PORON® Urethanes are available in a wide variety of colors, thicknesses, densities and surface textures to accommodate almost any activity, from everyday use to the rigorous demands of high-impact sports and exercise. And if the precise PORON material doesn’t already exist, one can be custom formulated for the needs of a specific manufacturer’s physical and aesthetic requirements.

  • Maximum retention of comfort and flexibility PORON urethanes are made without plasticizers, which means the material will not shrink or become brittle and crack with age. PORON urethanes retain “like-new” softness and flexibility.
  • The highest degree of impact absorption More shock absorption means less impact to feet and joints. In side-by-side drop weight tests, PORON materials outperformed vinyl sponge, neoprene sponge, sponge rubber, latex foam and solid viscoelastic.
  • A breathable layer to help feet stay dry and cool  PORON urethane materials form permeable layers that draw water vapor and perspiration away.

Seal & Design awarded GM Supplier Quality Recognition Award

Seal & Design was recently awarded with GM’s Supplier Quality Recognition award for obtaining QSB certification.  This prestigious accomplishment vital to ensuring GM’s supply base provides the highest industry standards in manufacturing quality performance.  Seal & Design was required to pass all 11 elements of Quality Systems Basics, and achieve a score of 85% or greater.

EPDM Rubber

Ethylene-propylene rubber & elastomers (Also called EPDM and EPM) continues to be one of the most widely used and fastest growing synthetic rubbers having both specialty and general purpose applications.  Versatility in polymer design and performance has resulted in a broad range of use in automotive weather stripping and seals, glass-run channel, radiator, garden and appliance hose, tubing, belts, electrical insulation, roofing, membrane, rubber mechanical goods, plastic impact modification and motor oil additive applications.  On the Other hand, it doesn’t do well with oils and petroleum-based products.  Its physical resilience (high tensile and tear properties) makes it good for moving or vibrating applications.

EPDM rubbers are valuable for their excellent resistance to heat, oxidation, ozone and weather aging due to their stable, saturated polymer backbone structure.  Properly pigmented black and non-black compound are color stable.  As a non-polar elastomers thy have good electrical resistivity, as well as polar solvents, such as water acids alkalis, phosphate, esters and many ketones and alcohols.

Durometers Range from 40 to 90
