Trelleborg Pipe Seals design and manufacture seals for clay pipes. We provide custom designed seals for the individual clay pipe producers pipes. Seals can be fitted either to either the pipe spigot end or integrated into the polypropylene fitting production as a captive gasket.
All joints are designed in cooperation with the pipe manufacturer to ensure the joint meets and exceeds the requirements of EN 295-1. All joints accept angular deflection and shear load resistance without leakage, when tested under an internal or external pressure of 50kPa.
Due to the excellent sealing function, Trelleborg’s clay pipe seal ranges offer improved performance against root intrusion allowing the pipes to be installed in both open trench and no-dig pipe lines.
In addition, Trelleborg design and manufacture specialist seals, which offer a leak free solution up to 4.5bar internal and external water pressure.
Trelleborg have developed a specially formulated EPDM 50 IRHD compounds for the use in clay pipe applications.
Trelleborg’s EPDM rubber compounds are the ideal material for such applications, offering increased reliability and exceeding the requirements of the relevant standards.
The chemical composition of our EPDM provides exceptionally high resistance to the effects of UV light, weathering, oxidisation and ozone.
The materials excellent restoring force characteristics mean that it can be expected to offer superb performance for in excess of 100 years.
Nitrile (NBR) compounds are also available. All compounds are manufactured in accordance with EN 681-1.
