If there is a lot of sun exposure, we offer an EPDM rubber stripping that has superior resistance to UV and ozone. If there is exposure to oils or petroleum, Buna-N rubber stripping is the ticket. Viton rubber stripping is great for tricky chemicals, whereas Neoprene rubber stripping is an all purpose solution handling water, moderate oils and some exterior exposure. We also offer a closed cell sponge stripping with or without paper-backed adhesive. Along with the rubber stripping we cut, we supply molded rubber stripping and extruded rubber stripping in a multitude of shapes and sizes.
One of our customers who lives on his boat was beyond thrilled when we found a tadpole seal (a rubber strip with a sealing bulb) that perfectly fit the window by his bed which had been leaking for years. He had searched and searched for a solution to no avail. We were able to find it, and were happy to hear it was a successful fix for him.
So if you are looking for a seal for your doors, windows, or hatches, whether for a huge cargo ship or a small live-aboard vessel, call Allied Packing and Rubber in Long Beach at 562-435-2411 or email us at email@example.com.
