We manufacture and supply a range of standard and non-standard O-rings and grommets. Other typical parts SBR supply into aircraft includes gaskets, sheeting, extrusions and seals.
Our key experience in dealing with advanced materials includes:
|GLFT||BS Specs||MIL DTL 25988|
|MIL Specs||MSRR Specs||AFS Specs|
|NFL 17 Specs||WRAS||AMS Specs|
|ASN 307||EN Specs||BS F Specs|
|ASTM D1056 Sponge||FR Specs||NAS Specs|
Non-standard O-ring sizes are manufactured to tooling but our extensive range of standards includes:
SBR build and supply an impressive array of parts into both the Lynx and Merlin Helicopters
Originating from an Anglo-French agreement in the late 1960's, the Lynx has gone on to become one of the most advanced and successful shipborne helicopters operated in the world today.
Since gaining full Leonardo approval, this has allowed us to supply directly into the production line. Our components are used in the anti-submarine, anti-ship, utility role and within rescue helicopters. We now manufacture and supply a large number of rubber and silicone components into the Leonardo helicopter fleet.
