About Our Automotive Sector Solutions

With over 150 years of experience shared among our employees, our team can give you the right advice for the automotive sector.

Our engine hose compounds are designed to meet rigorous industry and international testing standards, ensuring reliability and performance under the challenging conditions found beneath the vehicle’s bonnet. These hoses play a pivotal role in the smooth operation of a vehicle’s engine by withstanding extreme temperatures, pressures, and corrosive effects.

Seals are vital for preventing the ingress of fluids, gases, and contaminants, which can compromise vehicle performance and longevity. Made from advanced rubber compounds, these sealing solutions are tailored to meet stringent industry and international standards, ensuring they can endure the demanding conditions found in automotive applications.

At the heart of air sprung seating technology is the use of flexible, durable rubber bladders that can be inflated or deflated to adjust the seat’s firmness and contour. The rubber materials used are selected for their elasticity, resilience, and ability to withstand repeated compressions and expansions.
