Rubber Grommets with a hole to protect or insulate a rope or cables and wires.Its selection based on :
» Rubber Materials
» Atmospheric conditions
» Engineering design
Rubber grommets are used to protect objects from sharp corners and edges. In addition the inherent functions such as flared or collared on each side allow it to be press-fit into an application without adhesive or any additional fasteners to hold them in position. When a wire or tube needs to pass through metal or another material it holds wires at their point of contact to avoid damage to connection points.
Being known for the quality and precision, KPM is considered as one of the best grommet manufacturers in the South of India.
In addition the primary uses for custom rubber grommets are vibration control, protecting defensive edges of a hole, climate seal around a wire or tube. Some of the different types of grommets are :
- Blind grommets
- Cable grommet
- Custom rubber grommet
Based on the base polymer selection the properties like high pressure, high temperature, insulation can be achieved eg., EPDM grommets, Nitrile grommets.
The self-sealing grommets are particularly susceptible to abrasion or to breaking after repeated flexing at its point of entry through a surface.
