A.J. Rubber & Sponge Ltd. custom manufactures gaskets and seals for both military and aerospace applications, and can produce such products to military specifications (mil. spec.). Although there is a broad range of uses for custom die cut or custom kiss cut gaskets in the aforementioned industries, most of our mil. spec. production runs have been to supply one or more of a variety of military specifications.
Mil. spec. gaskets are incorporated in a variety of machinery, electronics and sealing applications critical to the optimal functioning of various protocols. Below are a few examples of how seals, foams and gaskets are utilized for military and/or aerospace applications.
Gaskets for military defense electronics and electrical applications:
The military uses battery door gaskets, cover gaskets, cushioning pads and acoustic gaskets in order to protect ground and/or vehicle-mounted communications devices, data acquisition devices and radar, as well as other sensing devices. It is important that such sensitive communication devices in the military are protected and well secured from threats. With constant exposure to conditions of severe weather, it is imperative that seals and gaskets be die cut to military specifications.
Custom gaskets for use in aircraft and aerospace applications:
A.J. Rubber & Sponge Ltd. manufactures custom seals and custom gaskets for use in many rigorous applications within the aerospace industry. For example, aerospace engineers often need to source materials that are compliant with specific regulations and that meet particular requirements for use in extreme conditions. Although there are many parameters to be considered when selecting between various seal and gasket materials, the highest priority is typically given to fire testing, flammability, smoke and toxicity resistance. A.J. Rubber & Sponge Ltd. can help you every step of the way, from compound/material selection to the design process, and finally custom fabricating rubber, sponge, neoprene, EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber, sponge, silicone foam and silicone rubber products such as seals and gaskets.
