As automotive OEM’s continue to roll out new platforms and models, sealing solutions and parts continue to be an integral part of the vehicle. For over 25 years, Canada Rubber Group (CRG) has helped vehicle manufacturers and their supply chains to solve their most pressing challenges for vehicle sealing, trim, and noise reduction.
Core offerings in CRG’s automotive product line include automotive rubber extrusions, gaskets and NVH parts. No matter whether you need an extrusion, gasket or NVH part made from rubber, sponge, or other specialty material, CRG’s automotive team can recommend and supply the material with the right properties and characteristics to fully satisfy your requirements.
CRG Automotive Rubber Extrusions
Sealing vehicle cabins and components effectively is a key determinant for passenger safety and comfort. CRG can supply a wide variety of rubber extrusions, fabricated from rubber or sponge, which service the following vehicle applications:
Seals and weather stripping for varied applications, including: body; driveline; engine; steering and suspension; wheel-end; bearing; and doors, windows, hoods and trunks.
Plenum Plugs. Precision fabricated plenum plugs that provide a high-quality seal and deliver maximum water drainage throughout their life cycle.
Grommets. Rubber grommets that provide protection to vehicle wiring or cabling.
Cuffs and Sleeves. Fabricated from materials that are resistant to abrasion, solvents, and oils.
Pedal Pads. Molded pedal pads for both new vehicle programs and after-market applications.
Gaskets are an important part for assuring the reliability of vehicle systems and components. Gaskets and gap fillers are needed to protect sensitive electronics and seal out air, water, dust, light, and electromagnetic interference (EMI). CRG gaskets for vehicle applications are manufactured from a variety of materials, including standard and specialty elastomers, silicone rubber, microcellular foam and sponges, and specialty materials such as Poron®. CRG gaskets for vehicle applications provide solutions for door panels, instrument panels, HVAC systems, engine compartments, fuel systems, lighting systems, and more.
CRG NVH Parts
NVH is a term widely used in the automotive industry to describe noise, vibration, and harshness. CRG fashions NVH parts from rubber, foam, or other materials which are designed to isolate and dampen noise, vibration, and harshness in vehicles. Materials are chosen specifically for their quality, resistance to compression set, and fit for the application at hand. We can also provide a range of packaging and supply options to improve our customers’ efficiency in transportation, handling and storage.
Examples of NVH parts which CRG has provided for vehicle programs include the following:
Door check seals
Noise-reducing window and door seals
Radiator dampening pads
Rear hatch dampening bumpers
