Single and multiple-convolution boots protect various joints and articulated shafts. Also referred to as dust seals or bellows, these molded boots can be fixed in place or removable depending on need. Popular in the automotive industry, protective boots protect critical joints across a range of industrial equipment. Steering systems, chassis, drivetrains, joy sticks are amongst the most popular applications.
Molded boots are available in most elastomeric materials, and a wide variety of geometries. Typical methods of manufacturing these boots or bellows are conventional molding techniques (injection, transfer or compression molding), latex dip molding and even RF welded bellow from thin urethane film. Thickness cross sections can be as low as .020."
