Aerospace Gaskets and Materials
We have been in the aerospace industry for over 30 years. We sell to a variety of commercial and Government users in the traditional markets as well as space, military arms and other applications. In these industries our parts are used in applications around engines / power, electrical systems and interior components.
We use a variety of materials based on the applications. For engines and electrical systems, we use high-temp materials including some with electrical grades. Examples include Nomex, Kapton, Teflon coated fiberglass, Viton, Glass melamine (G-7, G-10, etc), silicone, compressed non-asbestos materials and many others. We also use EMI materials such as silver-impregnated silicone, flexible graphite and other proprietary EMI materials.
For interior components, we use common gasket materials including industrial plastics such as Nylon, Polyethylene and Teflon as well as commercial-grade solid rubbers including nitrile, neoprene and silicone.
These parts are commonly utilized in a variety of applications, including:
- Vibration dampening
- Shock absorptions
- Sound blocking
The aerospace industry leads the way in innovation and technology. Excelsior has been serving this sector for more than 30 years and we’re committed to manufacturing custom fabricated aerospace components such as gaskets, seals and insulators to meet the needs of our military, government and commercial customers.
When a project demands it, we also use EMI (electromagnetic interference) materials such as silver-impregnated silicone, flexible graphite or other proprietary materials.
At Excelsior, we make it easy for you to do business with us; good customer service is our top priority. We are your one-stop-shop for both standard and custom precision parts. While we stock a variety of common materials used in the aerospace industry, our experienced technicians are ready to partner with you on rapid prototyping and custom products.
