Vulcanization or Molding

The majority of cross-sections can be produced in spliced frames if that is required in your particular application. Splicing or joining the ends of gaskets can be performed by several different means. The strongest and most widely used method is vulcanization. This process is performed in a heated mold and permanently joins the gasket to form rings or corners.

This process can be used to give the customer a small or extremely large gasket without a large investment in a compression or injection tool. Gaskets of this type are used in construction as well as industrial applications and the sizes of the finished gasket are easily adjusted for the proper fit.
