Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets, we can supply pads manufactured from a variety of materials including specialist types used in applications requiring resistance to extreme temperatures and harsh chemicals. Our pads are produced on-site using drawings or measurements provided by our customers, with whom we work closely to ensure the final product is to their exact specification. Depending upon the size and quantity of pads required, one of many presses, bandsaws or CNC machines can be used to manufacture the final product, from one-off samples to multiple batches runs, which can be supplied as loosely cut parts, or kiss-cut on rolls where a high quantity is required or for use on fast-paced assembly lines.
What are Pads?
Pads are cut using rolls or sheets of materials such as plastic, sponge, foam, rubber or cork, often used in the same way as a gasket, whereby they are used to create a seal between uneven surfaces and fill irregularities. Our pads can be produced as squares or rectangles with the option of radius corners, and also as circular or oval-shaped pads or ‘discs’, in a range of thicknesses. Manufacturing pads in-house even means we can supply them in a plain or self-adhesive backed finish and even laminate multiple types of material together to create bespoke and unique variations.
Why use Pads?
Pads are often taken for use with sealing against dust, air and moisture, gap-filling between uneven surfaces or for reducing unwanted noise and vibration. ASG can produce pads in various material types and grades, each with different levels of resistance, formulated for use in different applications and environments. Many industries make use of pads, these include automotive, medical, packaging, aerospace and construction, to name a few.
Benefits of Using Pads
Advanced Seals and gaskets can offer a range of pads, each manufactured to our customer’s exact specification and in a material choice that will be best suited to the application or environment in which it will be used. Depending upon the material, pads will provide a range of benefits such as anti-abrasion and flame retardancy. They can also have resistances to extreme temperatures, ozone, Uv, weathering, acids, oils, chemicals and water. Choosing ASG for your pads will ensure you receive a quality product, excellent service and a competitive price.
