COVID-19 Face Shields

        As a custom high volume fabricator, Seal & Design is currently manufacturing large scale productions of disposable medical face shields.  All components are converted at our manufacturing plant in Clarence, New York, and available fully assembled or supplied as a DIY kit to assemble.


        Our premium disposable face shields are produced from an optically clear Medical Grade APET with an anti-fog coating to eliminate fogging of the lens.  A comfortable brow foam with pressure-sensitive adhesive seals off the top area so there are no gaps on the forehead.  An elastic strap stapled in place completes the shield.  These shields are easy to produce in high volume and protect the face from fluid splashes and sprays.

        These shields are currently being used by our front-line medical professionals in hospitals combatting the COVID-19 epidemic along with employees of many manufacturing plants, medical labs, grocery workers, and many others that require an added safeguard from potential hazards while working.


  • Coverage from top of the eyebrow to underneath the chin area
  • Can be worn in conjunction with glasses or goggles
  • Lightweight and comfortable for extended wear
  • One size fits all
  • Ease of assembly



If you are only interested in purchasing the components, they are easily assembled.  We cut the parts and you simply assemble them which could assist in keeping your employees working.  We have taken on so many orders that we would like to continue cutting parts to get these shields to market but need the help of our communities to assemble then sell through their existing client channels.  The elastic band will vary between white or black.  Based on availability lens thickness could be between .005″ – .020″ thick.  If you are in need of a specific size we can easily develop a new tool and custom cut to your detailed specifications.

To Our Valued Customers and Partners,

In response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus, on March 20, 2020, a New York State executive order mandated that 100% workforce of non-essential businesses must stay home.  Since Seal & Design Inc. plays a critical role in the supply of materials and parts used in the global response to the COVID-19 outbreak for the energy & power generation industry, food and beverage processing, medical device industry, emergency vehicle lighting, oxygen concentrator machines and many others, we have an obligation to remain open and will be considered an essential manufacturer and distributor.

Our priority is first and foremost to protect the health and safety of our team & their families as well as our customers & supply partners.  Our shop personnel who are working on-site are practicing safe social distancing and other precautionary measures consistent with guidelines established by the CDC and WHO. We are also reducing the density of shop personnel through multiple shifts and directing them to focus solely on supporting those businesses that have also been deemed “Essential”, as described by New York State Executive Order 202.6.

PTFE Products

molded-ptfePolytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) also known as Teflon® is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. Invented by DuPont, PTFE can be modified and shaped for use as a gasketing material with strong chemical resistance properties.




Advantages of using PTFE include:

  • Not affected to most chemicals.
  • Can be used at temperatures up to 500°F (260°C).
  • The lowest coefficient of friction of any solid material.

Seal & Design offers PFTE Gasket materials from producers such as Inertex® and Garlock® GYLON® as well as PTFE O-Rings.

For more information on usage of PTFE products and other sealing solutions using this material contact Seal & Design or visit our website.

Spiral Wound Gaskets in the Power Generation Industry

In today’s changing landscape, there are more options than ever in the power generation industry; from natural gas, fossil fuels, coal, and nuclear to renewable methods such as hydroelectric, wind, solar, and biomass.

To withstand the extreme temperatures and conditions of these applications, manufacturers depend on durable gaskets and sealing solutions.

The gaskets used throughout these plants must be able to handle a range of operating conditions and pressures in order to evenly distribute power across long distances.

Reliable gasket solutions allow companies to easily meet the needs of the communities they serve while staying ahead of the curve in power generation trends.

Spiralwound Gaskets: High-Performance Technology

seals-metallicSeal & Design’s Spiral Wound Gaskets (SWG) are manufactured according to ASME B16.20 standards with quality assurance to comply with API specifications Q1 and ISO 9001:2008.

These gaskets are crafted with a combination of various smart materials: a preformed metal strip alternates with a more compressible, soft filler material, allowing for a highly responsive and extremely tight seal.
