Seal Master’s fabric-reinforced inflatable seals are the ideal solution to apply holding, lifting, pushing, sealing, squeezing or stopping force.
Throughout our 40-year history, Seal Master products have been used in a variety of industries and applications, from hangar doors to washing machines
An elastomer inflatable can accomplish several functions beyond sealing. Customers all over the world use rugged Seal Master in industrial, environmental, or technological environments to regulate the introduction of engineered force.
Seal Master has more than 7,900 inflatable seal solutions in its vast catalog, with hundreds of different use-cases. We are able to solve difficult engineering challenges that other companies balk at. We even designed an inflatable using special conductive rubber to form a resistive electrical circuit! Below are some typical generalized applications for fabric-reinforced inflatable seals.
Typical Applications for Inflatable Seals
Inflatable seals offer lift efficiencies (using grip and hold force), particularly where lift requires object placement or release. Inflatable seals have the ability to retract out of the way once deflated, making them uniquely suited for repetitive lifting applications.
