Elasto Proxy is an experienced provider of sealing and insulation solutions to the defense industry. Learn about our capabilities, and how we can help you with military projects.
For 30 years, Elasto Proxy has supplied North American defense contractors with low-to-medium volume quantities of high-quality rubber and plastic parts. Our first customer, Atlantic Defense Industries, deployed our sealing solutions on the boom hoist for a ten-ton military truck. Since then, Elasto Proxy has won numerous defense-related contracts for projects in Canada and the United States.
Controlled Goods, CADSI, and the Defense Supply Chain
As a registered member of Canada’s Controlled Goods Program (CGP), Elasto Proxy meets all requirements for record keeping, training programs, security briefings, and inspections. The Controlled Goods Certificate (CGC) that Elasto Proxy holds demonstrates our commitment to the defense industry, and we work closely with leading trade groups such as the Canadian Association of Defense and Security (CADSI).
Today, Elasto Proxy is a global company with offices and warehouses in Canada and the United States. Our headquarters in Boisbriand, Quebec is also our production facility, a place where highly-skilled personnel combine traditional pride in craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technologies. Facilities in Newmarket, Ontario and Simpsonville, South Carolina strengthen our position in the defense supply chain.
Custom Fabricated Components for Military Projects
Elasto Proxy supplies custom components like these to defense contractors and sub-contractors.
- Rubber seals for vehicle doors, windows, and hatches
- Military gaskets for generator sets and other equipment
- Vibration mounts for sensitive electronic displays
- Personal protection pads for confined spaces such as tanks
- Thermal and acoustic insulation for engine compartments and cabs
- Specialty seals for engine exhaust and amphibious equipment
- Parts for partitions and push-button tents
All of the components that we custom-fabricate meet demanding standards for quality and cost.
Sealing and Insulation Solutions for the Defense Industry
Elasto Proxy doesn’t just make parts, however. We solve sealing and insulation challenges. For example, when a manufacturer of military vehicles needed to replace a leaky hatch seal, our technical team identified a rubber foam that wouldn’t over-compress. Skilled production personnel then cut lengths of this material to size, and used film splicing to create high-quality hatch seals.
Custom seals aren’t all that we make for the defense industry. Because the big diesel engines in military vehicles run hot and loud, thermal acoustic insulation is essential. By creating insulation “sandwiches” from layers of elastomeric materials, Elasto Proxy helps to protect personnel and equipment. This custom insulation meets flame, smoke, and toxicity (FST) standards and withstands vehicle wash-downs.
In addition, Elasto Proxy can custom-fabricate elastomeric shielding gaskets that resist electromagnetic interference (EMI), provide environmental sealing, support electrical conductivity, and meet military requirements like MIL-G-83528C. By choosing particle-filled silicones that contain nickel-graphite instead of pure silver, military buyers can contain project costs while meeting shielding requirements.
Value-Added Solutions for Defense Contractors
Defense contractors count on Elasto Proxy to recommend improvements at the start of new military programs, when the time is right for modifications. With existing programs, our solutions providers understand that the availability of spare parts is critical. That’s why we can provide one-off components, or larger but limited quantities of parts. Even when a military program ends, prime contractors and subcontractors know they can trust Elasto Proxy to make spares and tackle old designs.
How Can We Help You?
Are you a defense contractor that needs low-to-medium volume quantities of high-quality rubber and plastic parts? Do you need to source rubber seals and gaskets, thermal and acoustic insulation, EMI shielding, or other components for military projects? Would you prefer a value-added partner instead of just a parts provider? Since 1989, Elasto Proxy has supplied sealing and insulation solutions for defense.
