Industrial rubber seals have a diverse range of applications covering hydraulic and pneumatic equipment which present a number of challenging sealing requirements.

We provide a broad range of experience in industrial gaskets and seals for challenging environments for a for a variety of applications, ranging from assembly lines, right through to the aggressive media environment of industrial plant seals.

As industrial devices become increasingly complex, Novotema has become a specialist in the production of industrial gaskets with very small cross-sections and complex geometries.

Materials for industrial applications

Novotema has a broad range of experience to draw on to help provide industrial gaskets and sealing solutions for a variety of applications. Our technical team can assist with custom component design for specific application requirements. Our team can help you identify opportunities for you to enhance the effective operation of your equipment through specialist design and advice on industrial rubber seals.

Novotema offer a wide range of industrial sealing solutions from standard o-rings, right through to custom designed industrial gaskets.

We mould components from a number of high performance materials, and many of these elastomers offer unique properties such as mechanical performance, low and high temperature resistance and high pressure capability.

Other services to meet your application requirements

With decades of experience, our engineers are able to offer additional services to aid in your sealing application. Services include:

  • Surface treatments for additional protection in extreme environments
  • Lab testing and FEA simulation is carried out on our components to emulate the real-life environment that they will be used within
  • Custom component designs made from our range of elastomer materials
  • Contact us to discuss your industrial sealing requirements, alternatively chat with us online.
