Albright Technologies offers custom prototype silicone gaskets for the medical, aerospace, military, industrial and consumer products industries. Prototype gaskets can be molded from an array of different silicones. We provide our customers with rapid silicone prototypes in 15 days or less using compression, transfer or injection molding processes.
The advantages of using silicone material in gasket and o-ring applications include:
- Highest available compression set values
- Excellent electrical properties
- Extreme temperature operating range
- Resistance to chemicals
- Resistance to fatigue
- High level of flexibility and durability
- The material is inert and odorless
- Can be steam sterilized
Silicone gaskets can be overmolded or bonded to other substrates such as thermoplastics, metals and existing silicone parts. Overmolding silicone gaskets onto substrate parts provides cost reduction in production products. There are many critical factors in properly designing a silicone gasket, such as location of the parting line, minimization of flash and maintaining tight dimensional tolerances.
