Compare material properties for EPDM, nitrile, neoprene, and silicone, and for natural rubber, SBR, and fluorosilicone.
Service temperatures, heat aging, dielectric strength, and electrical insulation are thermal and electrical properties for rubber compounds.
Learn about the physical properties of rubber compounds: tensile strength, hardness, specific gravity, tear resistance, and more.
Rubber parts have different tolerances than metal ones. This article explains how to find and use the right tolerances for your seal design.
Elasto Proxy doesn't design rubber products, we do perform design reviews for the seals, gaskets, and insulation we fabricate.
TPE gaskets are made of thermoplastic elastomers, a group of rubber-like materials that are lightweight, recyclable, and easy to color match.
Calendering, extrusion, and molding are the three main processes for manufacturing the materials that Elasto Proxy distributes and fabricates. Learn more.
Elasto Proxy fabricates silicone seals from solid, sponge, and foam materials in low-to-medium volumes. Let us know what you need.
ASTM D2000 specifications provide buyers and suppliers with a standard way to describe rubber used in seals and gaskets.
The difference between foam rubber vs. sponge rubber is about how these gasket materials are made and the sealing barrier they provide.
