Hamilton Kent has industry leading capabilities in rubber product design and manufacturing. Our production facilities include a broad range of equipment allowing us to provide parts that are custom extruded, injection molded, and compression molded to fit your most stringent project specifications and volume requirements. Our products are designed with sustainability in mind to provide the lowest lifecycle cost and the longest lifespan.
One of our greatest strengths is the Innovation and Business Development team. We regularly work closely with customers on their product designs to ensure that project requirements are met or exceeded. Our team can assist in the engineering and development from the initial stages of your project all the way through to completion. Gaskets are the heart of each connection, and our team will provide a detailed description of proposed designs and materials to meet your needs. We have over 80 years of cumulative design experience and know what challenges exist across a variety of applications, ranging from concrete pipe and precast, to plastic, to products for roadways, and more. Research and development are important elements of our process – we strive to continuously improve on existing technology to provide cutting edge solutions that make an impact in our infrastructure.
We are proud of our high-quality products, responsive service, and customized approach. Your project success is our priority – if you need advice, reach out to our team of experts today.
Quality – Second to none
Our dedicated Quality Assurance team documents all test results and manufacturing labels each product with a batch number so that every part is 100% traceable. We have rigorous testing standards to ensure that our products pass at every stage of the approval process – some of these tests include:
- Tensile strength – stretching rubber material to measure force capabilities
- Elongation tests – how far a rubber material can be stretched
- Age tests – to verify how gasket properties change over time
- Durometer testing – measure the (hardness) of rubber material
In addition to these routine tests, we have the capabilities to perform specific customer testing requirements for added assurance.
We regularly partner with customers on their projects. Below are successful projects that incorporate Hamilton Kent products. Some of these projects required extensive involvement from HK representatives for product development, technical assistance, and/or performance testing. Other projects required HK only to supply high-quality products from our standard inventory. Whether you require off-the-shelf items or custom products and engineering assistance, we’re ready to help make your project a success.
