  • 4. ISS Molding Technologies Injection Molding: A continuous elastomer material or plastic pellets are drawn into the barrel of the press by a screw. The tool plates are clamped together, then the screw forces the material to flow through a runner system and into the mold cavities. Compression Molding: An individual preform is placed in or near a cavity. The tool plates are clamped together, forcing the elastomer to fill the cavity. The elastomer is vulcanized and removed from the tool. Transfer Molding: A slab preform is placed into a well in the tool above a cavity. The tool plates are clamped together, forcing the elastomer to flow through sprues and into the cavity. The elastomer is vulcanized and removed from the tool.

    ISS Press-in-Place designs provide seal retention in straight-walled or dove-tailed grooves. They are lined with retention and stabilizer ribs which hold the seal in place and make it easy to install for time saving assembly. The small rib contact points require less flange loading, providing maximum sealing under minimal pressure for non-ideal surfaces. Gasket Groove Mating Surface PIP Gasket
  • 10. The drop-in-place design utilizes a rubber encapsulated plastic or metal backbone, lined with retention and stabilizer ribs. This design holds simple or complex seal shapes, easing installation and providing automation possibilities. Small contact points require less flange loading, providing maximum sealing under minimal pressure for non-ideal surfaces. See bulletin ISS 5802 for more details Drop-in-place seals Easy installation and time saving assembly
  • 11. Parker’s controlled compression carrier gaskets will improve system performance, simplify assembly and lower your total system costs. The over-molded composite carrier design incorporates single or multiple elastomers as well as a variety of value added features on one gasket. See bulletin ISS 5804 for more details Carrier Gasket A variety of materials and design options

  • 21. ChemCast piston seals provide flawless sealing at temperatures over 300 F and pressures exceeding 50,000 psi. They eliminate hydraulic piston drift, cold flow and metal-to-metal contact. The innovative joint seal allows pressure application from either side, making a single ring completely effective in single or double acting cylinders. The piston ring will pass over port holes without danger of blowout. The seals internal, high modulus, elastomeric oval expander assures constant contact with the cylinder wall, thereby enabling the piston seal to operate effectively at high or low pressures. See bulletin ISS 5801 for more details
  • 22. The one-piece design of the rubber-to-metal bonded piston seal lowers total system costs, reduces weight and saves space. On our design, the one continuous rubber seal bonds directly to the metal insert, reducing the overall cost and complexities of installation. The integral one-piece construction reduces the normal tight tolerances required in machined piston designs, while providing superior inner and outer seal characteristics. See bulletin ISS 5803 for more details Bonded piston seal can easily incorporate additional features such as, check valves. Metering orifices, spring retainers and other attributes.
  • 23. The Integrated Sealing Solutions’ molded lip seals are cost effective seals, designed to maximize seal force while providing outstanding drag characteristics in dynamic applications. The customized seal shape and proven molded technology provides an outstanding static or dynamic seal, as required in your application. Our lip seal designs conform to cylinder wall irregularities and provide more sealing surface than a standard seal. We offer a large selection of standard materials, and can formulate custom materials to meet your specific needs. See bulletin ISS 5807 for more details
