Mechanical seals play an important role in many of our customer’s products. Seals can be used to prevent leakages, contain high pressures, block outside contamination, and handle extreme fluctuations in temperatures. Specialty Resources supplies seals for products that include fluid and gas pumps, automotive products, heaters, and boilers. Through our network of global suppliers, SRI supplies seals in many different sizes and materials.
SRI also supplies gaskets to many clients. Gaskets are a type of seal that fills the space between two surfaces under compression to prevent leakage. They can often fill the gap between two mating surfaces that have minor irregularities. Gaskets are commonly supplied from cellulose, rubber, silicone, metal, cork, felt, neoprene, nitrile rubber, fiberglass, or a plastic polymer.
