Military Seals, Gaskets, and Insulation

Elasto Proxy fabricates and distributes a wide range of fabricated products for the defense industry. Whether you need coils, cut lengths, or finished gaskets, we’re ready to supply the sealing solutions that you need. We can also leverage our logistics to supply you with molded rubber or plastic parts, or rubber-to-metal bonded assemblies. With our abrasive water jet cutting capabilities, Elasto Proxy can also cut military materials such as Kevlar, ballistic steel, ballistic glass, and titanium.

From our global headquarters near Montreal, Quebec, Canada to our facilities in Newmarket, Ontario; Simpsonville, South Carolina (USA); and Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, Elasto Proxy combines the power of fabrication and distribution with added-value services. In addition to skilled manufacturing, we offer design assistance, material selection, kitting, custom packaging, and warehousing services.

Examples of the products we can provide include:

  • Gaskets for vehicle doors, windows, and hatches
  • Seals for generator sets and amphibious equipment
  • Vibration mounts and EMI shielding for sensitive electronics
  • Personal protection pads for confined spaces such as tanks
  • Molded parts for partitions and push-button tents
  • Thermal and acoustic insulation for engine bays and cabins

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. Our skilled production personnel then cut lengths of this material to size and used film splicing to create high-quality hatch seals that could withstand environments ranging from arctic cold to desert heat.

Custom seals aren’t all we make for the defense industry either. The diesel engines in military vehicles run hot and loud, so thermal-acoustic insulation is critical. 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.
