New Spec EPDM integral gasket and spine

A spring steel spine on a P section gasket is a simple, effective way to provide an excellent gasket function for enclosure and vehicle doors. To date this has been achieved with an EPDM bubble sealing profile attached to a PVC spring carrier, however now EMKA has developed an integral section which combines both in one EPDM moulding.

This integration provides many advantages – EPDM is itself a more dynamic material than PVC making it easier to fit while conforming to door contours and providing good temperature, UV and ozone resistance. At the same time, a unified moulding gives a cost benefit to installers, plus it is less hazardous in fire situations.

EMKA carries extensive stock of standard gasket profiles for enclosures, cabinets, vehicles, HVAC, etc. These extruded sections provide a simple and effective means of sealing to common IP ratings such as IP44, IP55, IP65, IP66 protecting against ingress of dust or liquids when installed face-to-face between a door and cabinet frame.

Profiles in EPDM, neoprene, PVC, black nitrate and natural rubber cover traditional expanded closed cell (self-adhesive) foam, through wiping blade and bubble or P type sections, with self-grip (clip-on), channel fixing and window type (with expansion insert), to more complex multi-functional and custom designs, perhaps with fillers or flocked weather strips and supported sections with internal or flange structural support.
