Materials of the highest quality

Materials in use within SBR parts are of the highest quality rubber and silicone.

We produce a wide range of components for machinery and applications across key areas of industry and manufacturing.  These include parts for use in commercial / military aircraft and helicopters through to showers and audio equipment.  

We use British Standard and Department of Technical Development (DTD) for our military customers, specification materials from approved suppliers.  These have been fully tested and released with certificates of conformance and testing

All parts are manufactured are fully batch traceable and documented.

From punching gaskets and seals to compression moulding
O-rings and bellows, our material options are comprehensive
