Kelcut Gasket & Rubber Creates Seals for Aircrafts, Missiles, Rockets & MoreGasket die cutting services for Aerospace Industry

The aerospace and defense industry encompasses aircrafts, aircraft parts, missiles, rockets and military weapons and systems designed to operate on land, sea and in the air.The materials chosen for gaskets in the aerospace industry need to have a high resistance to changes in temperature and weather as they can be regularly exposed to corrosive conditions. Gaskets used in these industries usually need to meet specific requirements in regards to temperature, wind, water, weather protection, Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) shielding. 

All parts including gaskets and seals for aerospace applications come under close inspection by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for aviation safety. Choosing the right material means your gaskets won’t breakdown-affecting the process, outcomes or products being made.  

Common gaskets for defense electronics include:

  • Battery door gaskets
  • Cover gaskets
  • Cushioning pads

Common aviation seals and aerospace gaskets include:

  • EMI Shielding gaskets
  • “P” shaped seals
  • Baggage door seals
  • Door seals
  • Fuel tank strap
  • U-channel seals
  • Window seals
  • Wind Lacing
  • And more

Most gaskets for aircraft and aerospace industry must be made from materials resistant to fluids like jet fuel, Skydrol and PAO.

Popular aerospace gasket materials include:
