The Secrets to Manufacturing Aerospace Mechanical Seals

The Secrets to Manufacturing Aerospace Mechanical Seals

The rubber parts and mechanical seals used in the aerospace industry must always be designed and manufactured to the highest standards. After all, lives depend on it!

The team at TMI understands better than most how even the smallest failure during the construction of an aircraft or space vehicle can result in devastation and disaster. TMI has decades of experience manufacturing aerospace mechanical seals that meet or exceed the highest industry standards. 

The Most Important Characteristics of Rubber Components in Aerospace

Every rubber component manufactured for use in aerospace must exhibit certain essential characteristics:

  • Wide range of tolerance of temperature
  • Wide range of tolerance in pressure
  • Resistance to fire
  • High durability

Failure in any of these areas simply isn’t an option, so aerospace mechanical seals must be designed and manufactured to perfection. 

Meeting Specifications of Aerospace Components

TIMo offers a wide variety of materials to meet every potential aerospace need. Our most used materials include:

  • Silicone
  • Neoprene
  • EPDM
  • AMS Materials
  • Fluorosilicone
  • PFTE Teflon

Unlike other materials, synthetic rubbers can withstand intense and corrosive aerospace fluids, including engine lubrication oils, jet fuels, and rocket propellants.
