If you come in to Allied Packing and Rubber, Inc. with a tricky sealing situation, we may just tell you to put a cork in it. But we don't mean that in a bad way! Cork is actually an excellent option for sealing uneven surfaces because it is able to fill in imperfections and distortions. A good seal must offer good thermal, chemical, and mechanical resistance. This seal is achieved with the unique properties of cork that are used for the high-performance automobile industry and many other industries.

Compression packing is used to lubricate moving parts in machinery. It is typically made of braided fibers that contain lubrication such as waxes and greases. The shape of the braided packing is often a square cross section. Square-shaped packing works well in situations where the equipment is worn and requires good expansion on the packing to create a proper seal. Loosely braided square-shaped packing works well in those situations because when it is compressed it expands better overall than more tightly-braided shapes and, therefore, creates a better seal under pressure in older, loose tolerance equipment.

Rubber Stripping

We've all seen the weather stripping offerings at the hardware stores.  They are often self-adhesive and work quite well.  There is only one problem.  If the space you need to seal isn't the exact size they stock, you have no other choices.  You sit there staring at it thinking, how could I make my door groove the size of this stripping?  At Allied Packing and Rubber we find out the groove dimensions and then cut the rubber stripping to the size of your door or window, which makes a lot more sense.   Along with custom-cutting to your dimensions, we take the service of the rubber stripping into consideration and offer several types of rubber that each have different strengths, tolerances and price points.
