We Commit to Quality : Our custom silicone seals are designed to meet the most severe conditions and reliability requirements of the aerospace industry.
Not only do our high performance seals excel in extreme temperatures and offer weather resistance for enhanced aeronautic performance, but thanks to their light weight they also reduce fuel consumption. And given, silicone is recognized as a non-toxic material with high durability, Covison seals ensure strict adherence to aerospace Fire, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) norms as well as offer minimal maintenance requirements.
Since security is crucial to the aerospace market, Saint-Gobain makes compliance a priority. Covison silicone seals meet all necessary tests and criteria and comply with national and international aerospace standards.
Examples of industry standards that our seals meet:
Our use of advanced technology enables us to deliver seals in various formulations, compounds and processes: extrusions, compression molding, injection moldings, reinforced composite moldings, or finishing processes such as self-adhesive.
Additionally, we utilize the innovative process of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to anticipate seal behavior and detect potential problems before they occur.
Silicone is a polymer that is combined with hydrogen and carbon. It is utilized in several industries and applications as a result of its excellent mechanical properties and performance in harsh environments with high-temperature variations, high pressures and humid atmospheres.
General Properties of Silicone:
To develop custom aerospace seals our engineers, along with R&D, sales, and customer service teams, will work closely with you to ensure that you will receive the appropriate seals that you require for your application and that it will be delivered at the right time. Our deliverables include silicone product design, documentation and certification management, materials and formulations consultation or product installation advice.
We utilize innovative processes such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to anticipate the behavior of the seal and detect potential problems before they occur. We are not only a global seal manufacturer, but your partner. And we stand by ready to provide both the appropriate sealing solution for your applications as well as peace of mind.
