Datwyler has developed a foldable gasket, which combines advanced elastomer materials with metal plates. This combination enables a battery to be opened without damage should repair or maintenance be required.
Datwyler goes beyond legal requirements worldwide. Increase of occupational safety of our employees. Reduction of environmental impact of our products. Natural rubber accounts for less than 1% of rubber raw materials. Customers benefit from particularly safe elastomer compounds.
Proactive reduction of packaging for raw materials.
Delivery of raw materials in large volumes by dry-bulk tankers whenever possible. Re-use of boxes and pallets by suppliers for some one third of total raw materials. Recycling, if possible, of non-reusable pallets, boxes and packa-ging materials.

Datwyler installs «Uri’s largest photovoltaic system»
Datwyler is installing “Uri’s largest photovoltaic system" at its Schattdorf site, with an annual production of around 800,000 kilowatt hours. This corresponds to the annual electricity consumption of around 200 four-person single-family homes. The project also involves the company's own electrician apprentices.
How are we developing sealing solutions today and tomorrow?
Increasing requirements, reduced costs, short time-to-market - this all needs to be considered when developing sealing solutions. One solution is the use of digital twins and state-of-the-art simulation tools.
O-rings: the system-critial sealing solution with high performance
On the surface, an elastomer O-ring may appear straightforward in terms of design and development, but there are far more processes involved than simply injecting rubber into a mold. Our expert Richard Katona explains how advanced materials development and simulation expertise can mean the difference between a good seal and an excellent one.
