Ames provides a unique combination of extensive elastomeric process knowledge and innovative developments in material application technology.

Elastomeric Coatings, Moldings and Gasket Processes

Our protective coatings, elastomeric moldings and dispensed gaskets processing have all been developed to satisfy specific customer requirements.

The specifications of our customer for functional and durable parts built for use in a specific temperature & chemical environment are thoroughly evaluated. This is done in order to select and develop the optimum material sets. Ames will recommend the manufacturing process for your project according to the nature of the elastomeric materials being used, their application, and the operating environment.

Typical Process in Material Application Technology and the Development of Elastomeric Moldings

When material application technology is needed, Ames has the processes and staff in place to handle the situation. Our Design Solutions team of engineers and chemists will prepare small runs of prototype parts to confirm the assumptions and designs made. Later the design is scaled up for a full production run.

Customer involvement is integral as we review our potential processes, opting for the best, most cost-effective protective elastomeric coatings, precision molded components and top quality dispensed gaskets processing solutions.

Ames has a wide range of elastomeric processes that have been continually expanding to meet the dynamic needs of both current and prospective customers. We keep current on material application technology and the fundamentals of processes utilized in other markets, applying them, with appropriate modifications, to markets with similar technical requirements.
