  • Cats, Christmas, and Cord Covers

    A few nights ago, I discovered that my roommate's had cat chewed through the cord of my phone charger for the second time. There's not much I can do about this except to try and keep that fur ball with an oral fixation out of my room. Because of this situation and with the holidays coming up, I can't help but think of the scene when the poor cat gets fried after chewing through the Christmas tree lights in the Christmas classic National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I know there's not...

  • Rubber Seals and their Summer Saving Uses

    During the brutal, hot, humid summer days, one thing I am very thankful for are rubber seals. Available in many forms including film, gel, solid, putty or strips, the product is ideal for filling gaps, insulating surfaces or spaces from water or atmospheric conditions and finally, to protect surfaces from corrosion. A popular method for creating these seals is extrusion; however it is not the only method available. They can be found in both industrial and commercial settings, but for me the most important use in the summer is its...

Industry Information

Extruded Rubber Seals

A rubber seal is often an extruded rubber product that is used to seal or fill gaps, insulate surfaces or spaces from water or atmospheric conditions and protect surfaces from corrosion, though not all rubber seals are extruded. Rubber seals are used in a wide variety of industrial and consumer applications.

Many kinds of manufacturing machinery make use of extruded rubber seals, particularly in manufacturing processes that involve fluids or pressurization. Machinery that is sensitive to environmental conditions or dust accumulation may also be shielded using some variety of rubber sealant, though some extruded rubber compositions can be damaged if exposed to certain chemicals or extreme temperatures. Rubber seals are an essential component in aerospace and marine applications where atmospheric stabilization or pressurization is necessary. In consumer contexts, rubber seals can be found in swimming pool pump systems, garden hoses, bathrooms, kitchens, as insulation and weatherstripping and in many other applications. A rubber seal can be a film, gel, solid, putty or strip and will adhere to ceramics, glass, concrete, bricks, paper, other rubber materials, leather, textiles, metal, plastic, wood and many porous surfaces and composite materials.

Rubber is an elastometer and can be created from collecting natural materials and from artificial synthesis. In order to become usable, it must be processed. Like all rubber products, rubber seals are processed in some way. In some applications, as is the case with rubber trim, a machine or series of machines called rubber extruders will process the raw material so that it takes on a more appropriate shape or qualities for its application. Extruded rubber is more useful as a temporary sealant as it can be placed and removed without damaging the sealant or the surface where it is applied. Examples of extruded rubber seals include weatherizing strips as well as plugs and stoppers. Non-extruded rubber sealants are used in contexts when a seal needs to be tailored to fit into, around or between surfaces. Such sealants are often manufactured, distributed and applied by the end-user as liquids or gels, and then they harden with time. Examples of applications for these varieties of sealant include caulking and waterproofing. Neither extruded nor non-extruded rubber seals are designed to serve as permanent sealants. Re-application of non-extruded rubber seals is required at intervals as they are degraded by atmospheric conditions and as time passes. Extruded rubber seals, which are more frequently used in industrial settings, are subject to frequent or constant wear and also need to be replaced regularly. However, rubber seals are often an inexpensive sealant solution, and the cost of their occasional replacement is often much less than the cost of damages to the things they protect.
