Elasto Proxy, supplier of specialty seals and custom fabricated insulation, is announcing high-quality rubber bulb trim seals for industrial and commercial applications. Rubber bulb seals and rubber trim seals feature distinctive designs and are made of application-specific materials. Typically, the bulb and retainer portions of these custom seals are made of different compounds.
Elasto Proxy provides bulb trim seals that are specified by weight, dimensions, durometer, and shape. Depending upon the application and industry, parameters such as temperature range, flammability, and code compliance are also important to consider. Although most bulb trim seals are black, rubber parts in different colors are available.
Bulb trim seals have A, B, C, D, and E measurements. Durometer, a measure of hardness, is given in duro. Bulb seals and trim seals vary in terms of shape and may feature the bulb portion of the seal in different locations. Bulbs vary in size and have an inch-based inner diameter (ID) and outer diameter (OD). As a custom fabrication specialist, Elasto Proxy can meet application-specific requirements.
Although some bulbs use 80-duro rubber, most feature medium-density EPDM. A synthetic rubber, EPDM is a closed-cell sponge material that resists moisture and withstands temperature extremes. This versatile, reliable compound also provides a relatively high degree of electrical insulation. Unlike many elastomers, EPDM also exhibits superior UV resistance, making it a good choice for outdoor applications.
Bulb trim seals are also available in thermoplastic rubbers (TPR). Weather-resistant, reusable, and often recyclable, TPRs will repeatedly soften when heated and stiffen when cooled. Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), another name for thermoplastic rubbers, are polymers that have both thermoplastic and rubber-like (elastomeric) properties.
