Gortiflex® Molded Bellows
All Gortiflex® Protective Covers are made from a tube of pure elastomer or elastomer-coated fabric, formed into a bellows-type cover. This process gives you a completely sealed cover.
Gortiflex® Protective Covers can be used as expansion joints, vibratory feeder joints, compressor and engine intake and exhaust manifold connections, and fan duct connections. Applications include hydraulic cylinder bellows and many more. Gortiflex® Bellows are suitable for outdoor duty and severe environments.
Manufactured from neoprene, buna, butyl, viton, silicone and Goralon® on fabrics such as nylon, kevlar, and fiberglass, Gortiflex® can be made air and water tight. The major advantages of Gortiflex® are: a molded cover with little or no tooling charge, a large variety of materials to solve applications, and excellent extended to retracted ratio for a molded cover.
