THE COMPANY


(Click para ampliar)

Juntas Industriales y Navales, S.L. is a company created in 1972 in Gijón, Asturias (Spain). We specialize in the manufacture of all types of “custom made” gaskets and seals to meet customer’s requirements.

OUR PRODUCTS


According to the European Sealing Association (ESA), “The primary purpose of a seal is to contain a fluid and so protect the immediate environment form contamination (and vice versa), which may vary in significance from innocuous fluid loss (such a steam, water, etc) up to nauseous, toxic or hazardous fluid loss. In the former case, the loss of such innocuous fluid will lead primarily to lack of plant efficiency for the operator, although such leakages may still present hazards (such as leakages of high pressure water or steam). Clearly, in the latter case it is not only financially inefficient but also environmentally dangerous; for employees, members of the public and for nature at large! Consequently, the correct selection and use of the appropriate sealing technology for the application is just part of the environmental responsibility of the plant operator”.

Our range of products includes:

  • Soft gaskets of compressed fibreboard, plastic and rubber in large and small batches
