These vary from cargo ships, oil tankers, chemical tankers right up to our Royal Naval ships. We combine this with our technical ability and know how to produce the marine hatch seals in a wide range of different materials i.e neoprene, EPDM and natural rubber, all of which are widely used for hatch seal production. In particular neoprene is used where higher temperatures are experienced or where ozone protection is required. Nitrile options are available where gas and oil resistance is a prerequisite.

We can provide standard seals or help specify and design a bespoke solution, either from drawings you supply or match any current seal in situ that may need to be replaced.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the process work?

We can take your concept through design, sampling, to finished product in-house, with complete control throughout. We have a number of processing options, and our total in-house control of design, manufacturing and tooling ensures that we can maintain timelines and achieve your delivery expectations.

Are your products bespoke?

Yes, at Nufox we provide you with a product that is totally compatible to your design and functional requirements.

Are there minimum order quantities?

No, but many of our products require tooling development, processing machine set up and compound selection. So the costs involved in this process have to be allocated to the project. But if a small quantity is required for fit and function, this can be accommodated.

What are the lead times for a product?

If the product is a new development requiring tooling, this can often be less than four weeks. However if the project is complex and requires a specially formulated compound, this can be longer. Once we have your enquiry, we are able to give you an indicative production time.
