Product Announcement from Elasto Proxy Inc.
What makes film-splicing such a unique and dynamic process is that it eliminates the need for applying adhesive to the joint and requires no secondary trimming of flash (net molding). No inserts are required for splicing bulb seals, and therefore cycle times are faster versus traditional molding. Typically, an insert is placed inside the profile to be vulcanized. Once the part has been vulcanized, an incision is made to remove the insert, which must be resealed. This process can become tedious for large volumes, resulting in higher costs. Since film-splicing requires no insert, the first splice is the last splice! Having a one-step process increases productivity and eliminates the possibility for error. The result is an automotive-quality gasket. The film-splicing machine also has a unique cooling ability that allows us to splice taped profiles without compromising the adhesive ability of the tape.
