Precision specialist automotive manufacturers of custom rubber gaskets, seals and mouldings
When it comes to unwieldy large volumes of mass manufactured parts, that’s not what DP Seals are about. When it comes to specialised rubber components, manufactured to the highest tolerances in the industry today, flash free and capable of withstanding everything that high-performance motoring can throw at them – then now you’re talking. Often we’ll work together on design and prototyping, working with Automotive Design Engineers to develop a high-performance seal in the first production stages. Utilising our advanced knowledge of materials to produce a component that fully matches the performance and longevity required. Eventually, for mass production, these items may need to be produced elsewhere – but we’ll have played the most important part in getting it right in the first place.
