Sealing solutions for harsh environments

Profiles in heavy industries, like the pulp and paper industry, require pressure strength, high tear resistance and often good resistance against various chemicals.. The properties of silicone fit well for heavy industries, but for some cases, the ideal options are TPV/TPE profiles or profiles with co-extruded structures with two different grades of hardness or materials. Added agents in silicone profiles improve their required temperature and chemical resistance. We are also thoroughly familiar with the insulation requirements of ventilation systems.

V.A.V. GROUP FINDS SOLUTIONS TO
VARIOUS PROFILE NEEDS

In our collaboration with Honkarakenne, we had to consider many factors to provide the best possible profiles for log house construction. Read more about our collaboration.

Additional Assembly Services

Pressure profiles and the attached metal valves are used for example for washers in the pulp and paper industry all over the world. Other usage scenarios are, for example, the waterproofing of the compartments of some special vehicles. 

Pressure profiles are made from V.A.V. Group’s own silicone profile. The silicone used for pressure profiles goes through further processing to ensure that it can withstand the pulp washers’ harsh mechanical and chemical wear and tear. The profiles and valves must endure various conditions, from the fast spinning motion to different acids and alkalines used in the bleaching and washing phases. Pressure profiles are made according to the drum’s measurements, and finished profiles are connected to metallic valves, which direct air to tightly seal the profiles.

V.A.V. Group's advantage

Our advantage is our innovative and flexible nature, which guarantees specialized production series sizes and the right materials and implementation for your needs. 

If you need high-quality profiles for your next project, don’t hesitate to contact our sales team!

Pulp and paper industry

V.A.V. Group manufactures silicone and TPE/TPV profiles, but also various assembly products, such as pressure profiles. Pressure profiles and the attached metal valves are used for example for washers in the pulp and paper industry all over the world.

The pulp and paper industry required pressurised profiles that can withstand both high-pressure and different acids and alkalines used in the bleaching and washing phases. The silicone used for pressure profiles goes through further processing to ensure that it can withstand the pulp washers’ harsh mechanical and chemical wear and tear.
