Bonded Seals, also commonly referred to as Dowty Seals or Washers. These are sealing discs that seal threads and flange joints. The discs consist of a metallic ring and a rubber sealing pad bonded together. They were originally designed to replace copper type washers in higher pressure systems. The metal ring resists the bursting forces and so limits the deformation of the elastomeric element. Available in metric and imperial dimensions.
Because of the wide variety available, you can select the material for the washer and the rubbers to best meet the requirement of each application.
O Rings Limited can offer Bonded Seals in a wide choice of materials including:
Mild Steel, Zinc plated
Standard material is Nitrile. Standard metal is Mild Steel,Zinc Plated .
Also available as Self-Centering Bonded Seals. These have an extra lip on the ID of the rubber developed to eliminate the occurence of leakage due to seal offset. The self-centering type of bonded seal has the additional benefit of pre-assembling onto threads with the consequent production line savings. Furthermore the thin seal membrane offers little resistance during assembly.
