Versatility of inflatable seals

Inflatable seal applications

Inflatable seals are used in a wide variety of industrial applications, solving difficulties that are hard to solve by compression seals.


LIKON inflatable homogeneous elastomeric seals are used for sealing in all sorts of applications. The shape allows for different ways of expansion. Please contact us for technical assistance and available solutions.



  • easy removal to allow for quick CIP cleaning
  • perfect sealing of crooked sheet metal due to welding
  • simple design, large variety of shapes available
  • low cost for tailored inflatable seals


Pharmaceutical industry

In food and pharmaceutical industries applications, avoiding contaminants building up on the seal is also a major issue. Certain cross sections therefore have fewer crevices and are easier to clean.

  • sterilizer seals
  • safety cabinet seals

Our special Antimicrobial Rubber – LIKON Antimicrobial Rubber™ (AM-rubber) – will also contribute to reduce contamination. inflatable Seal in FFKM For agressive cleaning media LIKON has recently engineered and supplied inflatable seals in FFKM (a.k.a. Kalrez®).

Keeping up with COVID-19

This rapidly evolving corona-virus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal. Governmental orders in the fight against the spread of the corona-virus (COVID-19) lead to the partial or complete closing of several production lines or designation of lines for the production of crucial parts for essential industries like food and pharma. As a direct result confirmed or usual lead times may not be met. In the current situation the delay cannot be determined. With the closing of factories in certain areas we need to make some changes to standard terms. To can keep operational and safeguard our financial position we must change certain terms. These will be announced and confirmed upon receipt of orders. Apologies for the inconvenience. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others!!
