Oil seals are commonly used in driveshafts, crankshafts and hydraulic cylinders where a rotating shaft is lubricated by oil or grease. The seal works like a cap, covering the clearance between the shaft and housing, stopping fluids from leaking whilst preventing containments from entering the chamber. If you are replacing a worn part because you have identified a leak, refer to your machinery handbook to find the type of oil seal you require. Whilst this is not always possible there are a few guidelines to help you get the right seal for the job.
Rubber cord is manufactured when rubber is forced through a die of the required cross-section under pressure of an extruder. Rubber cords come with varying durability to different types of exposure. Common types include EPDM, Nitrile (NBR), Neoprene, and Silicone cords. They are used in various industrial applications including seals, motors and associated machinery, construction equipment, and portable tools and appliances, among others

The Site safety and traffic control range includes rubber speed bumps, corner rubber fenders, vehicle rubber wheel chocks rubber hose ramps and kerb rubber buffers. Our vehicle fenders are hard wearing and durable.
Silicone is a synthetic elastomer which provides unique physical properties in compassion to carbon-based rubber materials. It is the preferred choice in the food, beverage and medical industries due to its low toxicity, thermal stability and resistance to micro-bacterial growth. Some grades of silicone rubber can remain flexible down to temperatures as low as -100°C and as high as 315°C.
The Polymax silicone product range includes solid sheeting, sponge or foam sheeting, cord, sponge strips, O-rings, tubing, hoses and edging strips. We also provide a large collection of Momentive primers and adhesives.
Rubber adhesives are flexible, high-strength bonding agents. Rubber adhesives include acrylonitrile, styrene, natural rubber, neoprene, and polyurethane, among others. Rubber-derived contact adhesives may be used with various surfaces like glass, metal, and natural fibres.
Polymax supplies Mapei Adesilex rubber adhesives. They are ideal for use with our rubber flooring and matting range. We sell a variety of different types to suit indoor, high humidity, or external applications.
PTFE is a highly resilient O ring material unaffected by virtually all known acids, alkalis and solvents. It is tough, abrasion resistant and capable of withstanding temperatures between -200°C to +250°C. It also possesses outstanding weather, ozone and electrical resistance. For this reason, it is the teflon of choice for use in aerospace, food, pharmaceuticals and telecommunications industries. PTFE O rings could be a more economical alternative to FFKM materials, but they are not easily compressed and have little memory to be able to return to their original form. This can be a disadvantage if under permanent strain and may not create the best lasting seal.
