Since 1982, Master Packing & Rubber Co. (MPRC) has gained extensive experience as a provider of innovative sealing solutions for hostile operating environments. We know that most jobs aren’t as simple as one-size-fits-all and out-of-the-box products often aren’t good enough. We take pride in our ability to develop efficient sealing solutions for challenging situations, such as blue and brown water marine applications.

Our skilled team customizes sealing solutions for virtually any industry and our customer service representatives are available around the clock to help with any order. We incorporate computer finite element analysis into each project to simulate real-world conditions and test how designs will perform, allowing us to identify design flaws or material incompatibilities in advance of physical production.

Services for Marine Industry

We have a skilled team of engineers on staff who can develop comprehensive sealing solutions for applications within any environment. We cut our gaskets and seals using a computer-controlled Atom Flash cutter, which eliminates expensive upfront tool and die fabrication costs.

With easy setup and high-output capabilities, we can begin production on most orders within hours of completing or receiving the CAD file. We offer rapid manufacturing on most orders and our processes are environmentally friendly. With in-house rubber molding, we can also customize rubber moldings for specific application needs.

The marine industry may be divided into two sections: blue water and brown water.

  • Blue water refers to the open ocean
  • Brown water refers to inland river environments

We have extensive experience formulating materials for blue or brown water marine gaskets and marine sealants, such as CG0, CG1, CG2, and CGX, among others. Our sealing solutions are ideal for companies that don’t want to use expensive OEM parts or operations where compliance with OEM part requirements isn’t necessary. We offer short lead times for time-sensitive marine projects.
