Hot Vulcanized gaskets for a variety of applications, including window gaskets for buses or cruise ships, boiler door gaskets
The most appropriate splice type can depend on the size and shape of the extrusion used, the amount of stress that will be placed on the join, and the shape of the finished gasket.
- Butt Splicing may provide the most cost-effective solution when there isn’t much strain on the join and the ends to be joined have adequate material
- A bevel splice may be required to provide a larger bonding surface if the cross section isn’t adequate to provide a strong enough bond.
- Molded and corner splices can be used for specialized shapes and irregular profiles.
Vulcanization or hot-splicing creates a chemical bond for a strong join that resists strain, temperature changes and pressure, but depending on your needs another method like film splicing, cold bonding or C-press injection molding may be more appropriate.
