Design & Manufacturing

Only the highest standards

Rubber parts used in the aerospace industry clearly must be designed and manufactured to the highest standards. The failure of even the smallest part on an aircraft or space vehicle can result in catastrophic disaster. This means all components manufactured by TMI meet or exceed the highest standards.

Characteristics required for aerospace rubber components include high durability, wide tolerances for temperature & pressure and resistance to fire. Failures in any of these areas cannot be tolerated.

TMI offers a wide variety of materials to meet the exacting specifications of aerospace components, including:

  • Silicone
  • Neoprene
  • EPDM
  • Silicone Rubber and Sponge
  • AMS Materials
  • Mil Spec Materials
  • Fluorosilicone
  • Fluoroelastomer
  • Viton Rubber and Sponge
  • Thermal Insulation Materials
  • UL- Approved Materials
  • PTFE Teflon

These materials are used to manufacture a variety of applications including gasketing, sealing, cushioning, vibration dampening, insulating, shielding, shock absorption and sound blocking. Synthetic rubbers from various sources can withstand highly aggressive aerospace fluids such as engine lubrication oils, jet fuels, hydraulic fluids, oxidizers and rocket propellants.

Components commonly used in aerospace systems include:

  • Bumpers
  • Thermal insulation
  • Hatch seals & covers
  • Grommets
  • Rubber extrusions
  • HVAC seals and gaskets
  • Extruded tubing & seals
  • Protective boots & bellows
  • Vibration dampening parts
  • D-Seals
  • E-Seals
  • Hydraulic actuators
  • T-Sections
  • Hoses
  • Firewall seals
  • Isolation mounts
  • Tubing
  • Piping
  • Caps and plugs
