Sealing systems

The all-rounders based on polyurethane and silicone

Reliable and efficient protection

The basic task of sealing systems is to efficiently protect components against moisture, chemicals, and various environmental influences.

RAMPF Polymer Solutions is a leading specialist in liquid to highly thixotropic two-component foam gaskets and elastomer seals based on polyurethane and silicone.

The foam gaskets are processed using FIPFG (formed in place foam gasket) or FIPG (formed in place gasket) technology.

Unlike dispensing system gaskets that are inserted or stuck on, the foam gaskets are applied directly to the component. They expand in situ and bond very quickly, which reduces cycle times and also ensures more efficient processing.

 

Our RAKU® PUR and RAKU® SIL systems combine efficient sealing with the highest quality and exceptionally easy handling.

By developing new products and optimizing existing ones, RAMPF ensures the toughest demands in terms of seal quality, sealing geometries, and mechanical, thermal, and chemical resilience are always met.

What’s more, processing properties such as reactivity, viscosity, and color can be tailored to customer requirements.

 

Your key benefits

Many years of experience in product development and processing technology

Perfect sealing thanks to automatic application of the liquid gasket
