ARMOUR PAD

The Armour Track Pad is based on more than three decades of designing and manufacturing high wear resistant materials for harsh military applications.

We have enhanced the wear characteristics further by developing a proprietary blend of next generation composite materials to create a perfect balance of rubbery properties and increased wear resistance.

  • Next generation ArmourTec rubber
  • Superior resistance to abrasion wear
  • Exceptional resistance to crack and tear Initiation and propagation
  • Most advanced track pads ever
  • 3X  the life of Standard pads
  •  Lower ownership costs

Marine

Mackay manufactures a wide range of products for Marine applications. Solutions provided to Marine customers are both custom and standard products.

Mackay’s range of products supplied to the Marine Industry include, but are not limited to:

  • Hull to superstructure mounts used for fast-ferries up to more than 125m; offshore wind-farm maintenance vessels; tugs and vessels which require vibration isolation of passenger and crew accommodation.

  • Hull to superstructure sealing strips used in conjunction with resiliently isolated superstructures.

  • Recreational vessel engine and ancillary equipment resilient mounts.

  • FRAS rubber moulded mats in non-halogen compounds for enclosed areas.

  • Mechanically galvanized and stainless steel mounts and vibration isolators with superior corrosion resistance.

DRUM SEALS AND GASKETS

Mackay is a major global supplier of high performance gaskets for packaging solutions in technically demanding applications.

Quality Materials

Mackay gaskets are predominantly produced from black or white EPDM rubber in an expanded closed cell form. This combination of premium, uniquely blended materials and closed cell configuration results in superior sealing performance with excellent chemical resistance and ageing properties. Mackay gaskets are designed for hazardous material applications, having proven conformance with international standards.

Vulcanised Joints

A key feature of Mackay’s gaskets is the vulcanised joint. Unlike rigid glued joints, vulcanised connections are totally flexible, retaining the properties of the parent material, thereby eliminating a significant potential for leakage.

Design Capability

Mackay is unrivalled in the field of intricate gasket profiles design. Application-specific profilesprovide improved sealing and make fitment easier. Self-securing features can be incorporated intothe profile, eliminating the need for gluing the gasket into the lid.

OEM/ Custom Solution

Mackay offers a unique opportunity to customers through vertical integration of all aspects of creating and supplying solutions for our customers. From design to delivery of finished product all stags are undertaken in-house.

Our CAE, Nata Accredited Laboratory, compound mixing facility, in-house tool design and variety of rubber manufacturing processes allows Mackay to optimise our customer solutions.

A wide variety of manufacturing processes are employed by Mackay.

  • Compression and compression-transfer moulding up to 1,000 tonne on modern PLC controlled presses.

  • Large platen area presses up to 1,000 tonne and 2440 x 1220 platen area.

  • Injection moulding.

  • Extrusion.

  • Calendaring.

  • Reinforced low pressure hose manufacture with autoclave curing of custom shaped hoses to 63mm

  • Hand-building of specialist bellows and fabric reinforced bladders.

  • Extrusion/hand-fabrication of large door seals.

  • Sponge extrusion and jointing of sponge seals for the packaging industry

Rubber bonding to metals, plastics, ceramics and fibre-composite materials allows development of solutions for a wide range of industries and applications.
