WARCO BILTRITE specializes in custom extrusions, from one-time special orders to high volume runs. Our extruders can produce custom rubber profiles and a variety of shapes including cable jacketing, O-ring cord, tubing, rubber seals, squares and rectangles in a wide variety of sizes. Our experienced sales team can provide product selection and design support, whether you require standard extruded rubber gaskets or custom extruded rubber profiles. With our in-house formulation and mixing capabilities coupled with die design and fabrication on state-of-the-art die making equipment, we can design a rubber compound to meet your specific requirements for quality and performance while minimizing cost.
Custom profiles are our specialty…
Compounding capabilities include Neoprene, EPDM, Nitrile, Genuine Viton®, Natural rubber and Silicone. We also provide custom compounding to meet Military, AMS, SAE, ASTM, NSF, FDA and commercial specifications.
WARCO BILTRITE’s diverse production equipment & capabilities include:
- 7 Hot feed extruders which range in size from 1 IN to 6 IN diameter
- Two extruders dedicated to advanced microwave curing for continuous lengths of rubber extrusions, resulting in improved processing speeds, curing times, closer tolerances and ensuring a cost–effective, quality part.
- A 50 FT autoclave produces straight lengths of up to 50 FT
- A unique pole cure system which enables us to produce rubber tubing with near perfect diameters
- Spliced and vulcanized rubber extrusions
- Mil-Spec and custom markings
Military and Aerospace
Custom and standard profiles for aircraft door seals, cable jacketing, clamp cushions, tubing, hatch cover gaskets, silo hatch seals, and watertight seals are but a few examples of products WARCO BILTRITE extrudes for the military and for the aerospace industry.
Profile gasketing for sealing doors, window glazing channels, and shower openings in both residential and commercial building environments.
Transportation and Recreational Vehicles
Windshield seals, camper shell boot seals, channels and fenders.
Profiles for conveyor systems and warehouse applications. Compounds can be formulated to meet industrial, as well as food grade applications…”From rocks to eggs!”
Our extrusion equipment is extremely versatile. We are capable of producing cable jacketing, O-ring cord stock, tubing, squares, rectangles, as well as irregular shapes in a wide variety of sizes. Rectangles can be up to 5 inches thick and 6 inches wide or 1 1/2 IN thick and 12 IN wide with cord diameters up to 7 IN.
Rubber extrusions can be spliced and vulcanized to form an endless variety of shapes.WARCO BILTRITE's extensive splicing capabilities allow us to produce seals and gaskets for a broad array of aerospace, automotive, chemical processing, construction, food processing, industrial, oil and gas, wire and cable, as well as military applications.
Our Splicing Department personnel are experts in creating high-quality spliced products. Our spliced parts are hot vulcanized, creating a stronger bond than can be achieved with standard adhesives. WARCO BILTRITE formulates and mixes its own proprietary splice compounds for the specific rubber parts that we’re splicing. After the application of the splice compound, the parts are then placed in molds where heat and pressure are applied to hot vulcanize the material, ensuring a long-lasting, reliable product.
Advanced equipment and multiple cavity molds permit high-volume production of O-ring and various other shapes – including squares, rectangles, and irregular profiles – at a fraction of the cost of alternative production methods. Combinations of extruded and molded parts can be spliced as well, allowing limitless configurations; resulting in substantial savings in time and tooling costs of fully molded products.
