HVAC maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) organizations need replacement parts for air handling units, air conditioners, boilers, chillers, heat pumps, furnaces, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and other types of HVAC equipment. HVAC MROs also need to source these replacement parts in low-to-medium volume quantities that meet requirements for cost and quality.
HVAC original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can supply rubber seals, gaskets, and insulation, but at higher prices and in greater minimum order quantities (MOQs) than some HVAC MROs want to pay. HVAC aftermarket parts are available, but commodity items aren’t the right choice when a custom sealing and insulation solution is required.
Elasto Proxy supplies custom HVAC seals, gaskets, and insulation in low-to-medium volumes. HVAC MROs like our pricing, but they also appreciate our value-added manufacturing. In addition to custom fabrication, we offer design assistance and help with material selection. If you don’t have a drawing of the HVAC component that you need to replace, just send us a sample and we’ll create a CAD file. Elasto Proxy can recommend the right rubber and the most cost-effective MOQ, too. Continue reading HVAC Maintenance and Replacement Parts: Custom Seals, Gaskets, and Insulation
Railcar products for passenger trains include custom seals, gaskets, and insulation for vehicle interiors and exteriors. Railcar interiors require specialized rubber products that meet flame, smoke, and toxicity (FST) standards. Railcar exteriors need reliable sealing and insulation solutions that can withstand tough environmental conditions while protecting passenger health and safety.
For railcar designers and sourcing managers, finding the right rubber products can be challenging. Because FST standards vary, engineers may need a supplier who can help with compound selection. Procurement personnel may need a vendor who can meet tight delivery timetables, especially with mass transit repairs. Cost-effective production is important, but designers and buyers also want value-added manufacturing. Continue reading Railcar Products for Passenger Trains: Custom Seals, Gaskets, and Insulation
Railcar rubber products need to meet flame smoke, and toxicity (FST) standards that protect human health and safety. Fires that burn railcar seats, floors, wall panels, and other interior components don’t just cause immediate injuries and fatalities. Flames can release smoke that obscures escape routes. Burning rubber that releases toxic gases can also overwhelm passengers and employees.
Suppliers offer compounds that meet FST standards, but design engineers still facing a challenging task. The flame, smoke, and toxicity standards for railcar materials vary widely. Designers need to familiarize themselves not just with different standards, but with standards used in different countries. By partnering with the right fabricator, however, you can source the right rubber products for sealing and insulation.

Mass transit maintenance organizations need to make cost-effective repairs to buses and trains. Public transit authorities and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies also want to source replacement parts in low-to-medium volume quantities. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can supply these custom rubber products, but usually at higher prices than sourcing managers want to pay. The minimum order quantities (MOQs) may be more than maintenance crews need, too.
Elasto Proxy offers a cost-effective alternative to OEM pricing and MOQs. For custom seals and specialty insulation, Elasto Proxy supplies rubber products in low-to-medium volume quantities. In addition to custom fabrication, we provide design assistance and help with material selection. If you don’t have a drawing for the rubber part that you need to replace, just sent us a sample and we’ll create a CAD file. We can also recommend the right rubber and determine the most cost-effective MOQ. Continue reading Mass Transit Maintenance: Custom Rubber Products for Bus and Train Repairs
