Marian die-cuts custom gaskets and seals using a range of cutting techniques such as rotary die-cutting, flatbed die-cutting, and laser /waterjet/ plotter cutting. The manufacturing technique is chosen based on the application, material, and volume. Marian meets and often exceeds dimensional tolerances, even with complex geometries or very small gasket and seal sizes.
- Laminated with pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA)
Pull-tabs or extended liner
Kiss-cut to a roll for ease of assembly
Oriented for automated placement
Low to very high volumes
This gasket was die-cut, kiss cut to a roll using Rogers Poron Foam, laminated on one side with double-coated tape. The Poron foam offers sealing from water and dust, as well as cushioning from potential impact.
These ID / OD foam washers are manufactured in extremely high volumes. They are made with EPDM foam, used often for noise reduction, vibration damping, and moisture sealing.
These gaskets offer light blocking and cushioning properties for electronic faceplate displays with an intricate design of buttons and switches. Rogers Poron® Foam material was chosen due to its soft and slow rebound properties.
The purpose of a gasket is to fill the space between 2 mating surfaces, generally preventing leakage while the material is under compression. Many products and applications require sealing from different elements: air, water, dust, fluid gas, electromagnetic interference, radio frequencies, and even light. In addition to preventing leaks and sealing, gaskets can also serve other functions, for example: cushioning, vibration and noise reduction (washers).
