Our custom made, fabric-reinforced inflatable bags offer reliable solutions to unique engineering problems.
Seal Master produces the highest quality inflatable bags and bladders on the market. Our inflatable bags are fabric-reinforced and custom-designed, providing the perfect solution for even the most difficult environments, such as in and around pipes and conduits.
The purpose of our inflatable bags and bladders is to provide consistent, reliable pressure control along an extended surface or area. The fabric-reinforced inflatable bags and bladders are engineered to perform reliably, even in environments where competitors’ products fail, such as in highly abrasive or high-speed situations.
Custom Designed & Engineered, Fabric-Reinforced
All of Seal Master’s inflatable bags and bladders are rubber-based and can be reinforced with a variety of materials (including DuPont Kevlar) depending on the specific needs of each project. Our inflatables serve low-pressure, moderate-pressure or high-pressure air or gas controllers.
Our expert team is equipped to design and manufacture both standard and unusual shapes and structures, and every inflatable bag or bladder is engineered for structural integrity at full load, so you can use your equipment with confidence.
