AUTOMOTIVE and TRANSPORTATION

A variety of OEM and aftermarket applications

Automotive restoration is an emotion-laden business. The window gasket used to restore a ’58 Corvette (shown on the left) must be of the original compound and extruded as near to perfection as possible. Our employees know the importance of extruding every inch of the 50,000 to 100,000 foot run with an exaction that "stands the test of love".

Performance Elastomers Corporation serves transportation and automotive markets with organic and silicone rubber meeting a variety of OEM and aftermarket specifications. RV’s are just one example.

We also provide glass run and other marine trim gaskets. Our gaskets protect against vibration and provide a seal against the elements.

OEM Automotive Applications

Automotive applications can be particularly grueling because of the many factors that can affect the rubber: temperature extremes from sub-zero weather to engine block heat; oxidation/reduction chemistry from salt, ozone, sulfides and NOx; exposure to organics like oil, gasoline, transmission, coolant and brake fluids.

OEM products include:

• Gaskets for gas tank straps (below left). These form a vibration and chemical barrier between the metal strap and the gas tank.

• Sponge and dense tubing (above right) channel and protect cable and wire running from the power supply to the distributor and engine block; and along the undercarriage.

  

Aftermarket Applications
Automotive aftermarket products can be every bit as exacting as OEM products. We make the weather-stripping for the windows, doors, and trunks of high-end classic cars.
