Bonded Seals

bonded-sealsBonded Seals are seals that are used to seal off potential leak paths on the shoulder of fasteners – such as bolts.  Seal & Design’s bonded seals are designed so that after tightening down the fastener in the assembly, the rubber of the seal will be compressed to the predetermined amount which will cause it to seal the clearance gap between the fastener and the mating components. Bonded Seals are intended to take the place of an o-ring in certain assemblies.

By using a Bonded Seal there is no need to have an o-ring groove machined into the component that the fastener will pass through. The seals are typically either a buna or viton elastomer with a cadmium plated carbon steel washer.  Please view our new webpage for standard sizes, and contact Seal & Design sales for special sizes and materials.

Peek high performance plastic

peek

PolyEtherEther-Ketone, or PEEK, is a high performance thermoplastic material that offers chemical and water resistant properties to seals. Peek seals are manufactured with peek material, and operate at much higher temperatures than other seals.  Seal & Design peek seals can be used consistently to a temperature of 500F without losing any physical properties, and since they are made with thermoplastic materials, they can be heated, cooled, and heated again without degradation. When high temperature and high pressure demand a high performance thermoplastic seal, peek seals meet the needs of various applications. A low co-efficient of friction, and a high wear resistance without lubricants, peek seals are insoluble in solvents such as oils, salts, and acids. Since the properties and materials that peek seals are manufactured from are important to their performance, peek seal materials must resist hardening, and maintain a long service life.

Seal & Design can provide custom peek seals that ensure optimal fluid control while eliminating leakage of your specific products. Our seals are engineered for static and dynamic applications and we utilize the latest research, technologies, and finest materials to provide our customers with optimum performance during demanding application conditions. Our peek sealing products include o-rings, lip seals, piston rings, wipers, and wear rings.
