For as simple as they are, rubber gaskets perform vital functions that keep your machinery and processes running smoothly and efficiently. But gaskets that are difficult to identify, are difficult to install or a total pain to remove, or don’t perform up to their potential for any reasonable amount of time are all too common.

Coatings for rubber gaskets are often essential for the performance of your industry and, ultimately, for your bottom dollar, which is why Coating Systems brings its expertise in providing coating solutions to industries as broad-ranging as the aeronautics industry to the military to finding you the perfect coatings for your rubber gaskets.

Are you having to halt production to replace faulty gaskets more often than you’d like? Are you wasting more time with inconsistent installations? If you can answer “yes” to either of these questions, then chances are that you could benefit from a talk with the professionals at Coating Systems, Inc. Here, we discuss reasons you should consider coatings for your rubber gaskets.

1. Trouble Identifying Rubber Gaskets

Let’s be honest, you have storage areas full of all manner of gaskets, grommets, o-rings, lip seals, and more. It’s not always easy to find what you’re looking for as quickly as you need it. And  while you fumble around looking for the right size, you’re losing precious time.

Don’t let your productivity suffer this way! Coating solutions from Coating Systems allow you to color your coated rubber gaskets in whatever way will help you identify them best, so you can be back up and running in no time.

2. Trouble Installing/Replacing Rubber Gaskets

Despite the precautions you take to properly store your gaskets in decent temperatures and away from corrosive substances, you still experience rubber gasket failure due to tearing and abrasion upon installation. These kinds of failures are tedious, and, if they happen frequently enough, they can really affect the efficiency of your processes.

With proper coating solutions, like the application of a dry film lubricant, from Coating Systems, your gaskets will install easily and more cleanly, leaving you with fewer failures and greater production efficiency.

3. Frequent Failure

Once your rubber gasket is installed, it may still fail for a number of reasons regarding pressure, mating surfaces, temperature, exposure to certain chemicals and elements, and so on. We all know these failures are just a fact of the work we do, but we also know it’s worth investing to reduce the frequency of rubber gasket failure.

Dry film lubricants and other coatings by Coating Systems can improve the function of your rubber gaskets in applications that expose them to all kinds of environments.
