GASKETS FOR MARINE MOTORS

GASKETS-FOR-MARINE-MOTORSGaskets for marine motors applications are one of Siliconiton’s core businesses; in fact they constitute about the 25% of annual turnover. This type of sealing must be moulded with special high performance materials, able to resist to the corrosion, basically from the dried salt present in the environment. Our compound suppliers are able to provide us with raw materials, which have an intrinsic feature of a low rate of humidity absorption.

In addition to the above mentioned necessities, vessels are also affected by almost the same problems of the automotive sector. In fact, also in their engines flow many fluids like diesel fuels and oils, that have a high corrosive impact and work at high temperatures. Therefore, O-Rings must be moulded with compounds, that resist to these strenuous conditions; the quality level required by this sector is the ISO Norm 3601 and our firm is able to respect it, even though we are dealing with very large sizes (up to 1500mm of internal diameter), due to the enormous motors that are mounted on the ocean liners.
