Since 1961, we have been manufacturing custom products for hundreds of maritime and marine applications. Our customers include shipbuilders, marina owners, Department of Defense, boat manufacturers, restoration companies, marine mechanics, oil companies and many more.
We supply custom-fit parts for submarines, yachts, passenger vessels, navy ships, tankers, personal watercraft, underwater pipelines, and everything in between.
At Vip, we know you need strong, durable, well-made waterproof seals, gaskets and extrusions to protect your assets and get the job done properly. Backed by an AS9100 approved quality system, we can guarantee your parts fit, and perform, exactly as you need them to.
Choosing the right rubber or plastic compound
Since products for the maritime industry will typically be exposed to ocean water, wind, rain, UV rays and both high or low temperatures, it is important to choose a rubber compound that is right for your unique application. At Vip, we have the ability to manufacture with all the standard materials like EPDM, Neoprene, BUNA, Silicone, PVC, and Thermoplastic Elastomers. The compounds we use are both versatile and durable, ensuring a long-lasting product that can stand up to the harsh marine environment.
In addition to the standard compounds, we can create custom compounds which will meet your exact specifications. This is one of the many things that sets us apart from other custom manufacturers. We look at each job individually and produce the best part at the best price.
With over 60 years of experience, we have the experience to meet the demands of any company in the maritime industry. If you need help choosing a material, our estimators can help.
We can manufacture almost any part you need made out of rubber or plastic. Some parts for the maritime industry can be easily found at the major distributors, but when you need custom parts, or want to purchase directly from the OEM, we can do the job. We do set up each job separately and manufacture solely for you. We don’t typically keep any items in stock.
The parts we make do cover a wide range of applications in all subdivisions of the maritime industry.
Cabin & Compartment Seals
We can also apply a strong pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) to almost any part. Our Vip+ post fabrication services are available to put the final touches on your part.
